"I work in advertisement where I use my design skills to develop ideas and nonverbal language to solve challenges facing clients. Advertisements are such by nature that people are forced to see it everyday but as I see it advertisement could also be a free delivery system for interesting art and thought provoking concepts and so not only help clients to sell a product but be a positive part of our shared culture. Even if it is only about beautifying the world, one poster at a time."
"Working nonverbal is a way of reaching beyond spoken languages to say what you think. I find it easier to express myself in design, for me it's more intuitive."
