About

Skills and interests

I am specialized in visual communication and graphic creation for print, advertising and editing.

Throughout my education and personal experiences, I acquired skills in varying artistic and graphic techniques as well as in silk-screening and traditional bookbinding.

Typography, typeface design, calligraphy and, more generally, graphic design are my preferred centres of interest. I am also very interested in language and writing systems built on other bases than the Latin alphabet.

My curiosity grows as time passes and feeds my creativity by means of literature, the plastic arts, mythology, etc.

I enjoy practising numeric as well as traditional photography, including the development of silver film.

Personal and professional projects have given to me the opportunities to learn HTML, CSS, and basics the of PHP and MySQL.

I read and speak in advanced English (TOEIC test score of 810) and I have taken Spanish lessons for a period of 6 years. I also got some basics in Chinese Mandarin during my year spent in China.
