I am a Graphic Designer by trade with 12 years of experience and I have recently relocated from Athens, Greece to London to further my career and passion within the Industry.
As you will see from my CV I have worked with companies from various sectors: Newspapers, Advertising agencies, Manufacturers of party goods and stationary for clients such as Asda and Tesco’s (producing goods under license from Disney, Hasbro and Nickelodeon) as well as designing end of year Corporate Financial Reports. In my last two positions as Head of the Graphic Design department I managed small teams of staff. I do also occasionally undertake some freelance work.
As Greek is my first language and English my second, I am currently taking classes to improve my spoken English however, my listening skills are very good and therefore I understand that for now, I will most likely have to start in a Junior position which I would welcome as I am a hard worker with a lot of creative talent.
The portfolio of software I work with includes Adobe Photoshop - CS2, CS3, CS4 (MAC and PC), Adobe Illustrator -CS, CS2, CS (MAC and PC), Corel Draw - X4 (PC), Adobe In Design - CS, CS2 (MAC and PC), QuarkXpress (MAC and PC), PageMaker (PC) as well as Flash and Dreamweaver. I am also IC3 certified.
A porfolio of my work can be found at www.royalgraphics.co.uk.
Thanking you for your kind consideration in this matter.
