VAMA are a series of homemade, natural cosmetics. Till today the company produces 7 products for face and skincare. The mentality of VAMA is to used as for the most raw natural and herbal materials for the manufacture of cosmetics. There is no stock of products and they are always prepared upon request. This way they are offered fresh to the consumers. For the packaging we used brown glass bottles and jars because natural cosmetics are very sensitive to light exposure. We decided to create a pattern of geometric floral and herbal elements that are actually used in the products. The packaging series also include a gift box used to hold two to four products that are given as a gift by the consumer to their loved ones. The design of the packaging exudes premiumness, but also responsibility and respect for mother nature and the heritage of herbal cosmetics.

We were invited to create an interesting and different video to promote the already well known Greek mastic drink "SKINOS". We found ourselves tripping around with the values and images that the Mediterranean spirit represents.
A great risk, but also an exciting challenge, was the filtering of inspiration coming from Greece. We had to keep a serious balance among the Greek soul and the SKINOS worldwide profile, but maintaining its origin. And all these led to a surreal metaphor that builds a dreamy narration among these elements and symbolisms, all strongly connected with the philosophy and culture of the brand. So, let the Mediterranean spirit take over your senses and... TASTE. IMAGINE. CREATE!!

In this 2 days event greek and international designers present case studies of their favorite works. I was asked to design the graphics for the 2012 Panorama festival.

The graphics were applied on posters, cards, banners, digital screenings and social media.

SEEAR is an annual project that invites designers and musicians to collaborate and produce audiovisual artworks. In 2013 I organized and designed the graphics and an artwork for SEEAR themed by Superheroes. Each designer teamed up with a musician and came up with a brand new Superhero. They had to think of his backstory, superpowers and weaknesses and present him/her to the audience through a poster and a music theme. The Superheroes were presented with an exhibition from the 8th till the 10th of March 2013. We designed the graphics, poster, flyer, giveaway memorabilia masks, web banners, website in collaboration with lokoexe and a promo animation video along with Tony Zagoraios. Special thanks to the designers and musicians that took part in the project with such passion and support, our sponsors and the Lust Decade group that printed the most appreciated artwork on lmtd edition t-shirts.
While working with Dimitris Deligiannis as Nevertheless design studio we were asked by an upcoming, greek, alternative, downtempo band called Mockbirth to design their first EP cover. Their sound, a mixture of analogue and digital sounds, inspired us to make a parallelism between analogue-digital, nature-geometry, black-white. Due to the low budget production and limited edition of packages, we decided to make our design a little more experimental. We made mono-prints with tree trunks and leaves and combined them with a geometry pattern taken from the logo lines. The whole package consists a hand printed CD, a paper case sewn with black thread and wrapped with a two color offset, double sided poster and sealed with white wax. The poster can after the opening be used as a real poster signed and numbered by the band.
SMS facts is a motion infographics video we did along with Tony Zagoraios for. We were commissioned by McCann Erickson and STEFI to create an inspiring animation of Actionaid, that would encourage people to support children in poverty by sending a single SMS. The video was screened to cinema theaters and Actionaid's youtube channel. The sound design and music theme was composed by Ted Reglis. The project was awarded with a merit in animation category in EBGE awards 2012 and with Ermis Production Award 2012.
