I consider myself a multidisciplinary professional as I have acquired, over the years, different skills and competencies. In addition to my artistic background, which enriched me in terms of visual culture, I’m passionate about Anthropology and human-centred design.I've been working as a freelance graphic designer for 15 years in a wide range of sectors such as arts and culture, food and beverage, health and beauty international cooperation and sustainability.My aim is creating meaningful visual communication for small businesses and entrepreneurs, NGOs, Charities and for creatives and art galleries.
