Hey Eleni! Tell us a bit about you.

Hello there! I am Eleni, a graphic designer, a great outdoors lover, avid reader, and knitting enthusiast. I have my fair share of interests (from sports to all sorts of arts & crafts) and not always enough time for every single one of them. I used to be a translator with studies in political science when I decided to ditch the email-writing jobs I had to finally listen to my heart and go for something creative. I still don’t know where I am going, but I make sure I enjoy the ride!

Dame Blanche - Logo Design Process

What or who inspired you to be a designer?

I have always been a creative person and have always appreciated good design, but it had never really crossed my mind to become a designer until my brother got me a Wacom tablet as a gift. Then I discovered your website, which made me think that it’s actually possible to become a designer!

Dame Blanche - Corporate Identity Design

What are you up to in the design world at the moment?

I am working as a Graphic Designer at a small company and am constantly looking to learn more about graphic design, discover new tools and techniques. I am currently eyeing type design in particular.

Craftivism - Layout Design

What is your favourite part of the design process?

Brainstorming, finding inspiration, trying out new things and methods, and most of all seeing the final result.

Soaprise - Packaging Design

Soaprise - Packaging Design

You were really into all sorts of design disciplines at TGDS, branding, campaigning and even packaging.
Have you a fav?

My favorite was packaging. I buy products based on their packaging so the idea of designing packaging that could someday hit the shelves excites me!

Tell us anything you would like to about your featured works.

Everything was designed amidst a chaos of inspiration, second thoughts, excitement and frustration, yet everything went fine and these ones even got featured!

Les Francofolies de Spa - Campaign Design

Les Francofolies de Spa - Campaign Design

What did you love most about studying design?

Learning and finding out about all the options that I have in creating the things I have in mind.

What’s your dream design job?
Don’t hold back!

Book cover designer, type designer, map illustrator.
One of them or even all of them at the same time!

What would you say to someone about to embark on their own journey in design?

Try different things and dare to fail! The latter is easier said than done.
