Bio

Hi! I'm an Athens-based creative with experience in graphic design and art direction since 2001. My expertise includes editorial and publication design, branding, web design, packaging and advertising. I have worked with some of the most important institutions for culture and the arts in Athens, as well as for various cultural events, publications, magazines, exhibition spaces, artists, musicians, fashion brands and other professionals in Greece and abroad. Although I love pop colour, bold typography and striking geometry, I consider myself a chameleon designer, who adjusts the end result according to brief and the client's profile, but always aims for a clear, powerful and communicative solution. To identify my style, just connect the dots.

Music

Along with my love for design comes a passion for music. Therefore I am an aspirant music selector at various venues and parties in Athens. My music varies mainly from disco and italo to balearic beat and synth pop, but also includes various sub-genres across decades and places on Earth. My sets stand out for mixing everything with everything, creating an unexpected musical narration far beyond an ordinary sequence. My main residency is the "Trophy Wives" project at Cantina Social, along with soul mate DJ D'Arcy Foxx. I also organise the annual "Athens DJs for Athens Pride" fundraising party, as well as various other parties & events.
