An illustration for Funky Citizens’ campaign to encourage people to sign up as observers during elections.

I was stoked to be asked to do a tutorial for Character Design Quarterly, a magazine that I've been buying religiously for the past couple of years. It's a step-by-step process of redesigning a character trope and it's printed in the winter edition of 2019 (#10)!
I'm featured alongside some amazing artists starting with the absolutely incredible cover art by Tom Booth, Jose Ciceraro, Kelsey Buzzell and many more. This was kind of a dream come true.
I had the amazing opportunity to work on The Power of Storytelling's visual ID again in 2017, alongside art director and partner Rareș Cinteză.

Check out the POS website for more information and be sure to watch our animated short.
I was commissioned by GIPHY Studios to create an animated pop-up portrait of Sir Elton John for his official page. I had tons of fun with this one. The rough animation was done in Animate CC and the final render in Photoshop CC.

A key visual designed for the Childrențs Theater Festival 2017. The graphic design was done by Rares Cinteza.

We ended up using the islands in many layouts and combinations, as well as the characters and vegetation.
A series of GIFs created in Adobe Animate CC for fun and experimentation.

Created for ROD, a Romanian design focused brand of Carturesti, this sketchbook was tailored to what I'd want out of such a product.

A set of three imaginary book covers created for Red Cross Romania's fund raising campaign in collaboration with Mullen Lowe. Designed to be similar to local and internation folk stories (The princess and the pea, Prâslea the strong and the golden apples, Jack and the Bean Stalk) with the food-related elements removed from their titles and imagery in order to raise awareness that for thousands of school children in Romania lunch is quite a different story.
A series of GIFs created in Adobe Photoshop.

A continuously growing series of black and white comics I make for fun.
I was commissioned to create an illustration to cover the entire food truck of Burger Van, a very popular local burger establishment. They wanted something colorful and yummy, but with a twist.

A product created for GummyCat Studio, this limited edition silk scarf was produced and sold in October 2017.

The animation created in collaboration with Rares Cinteza was really fun to make too.
Working with Graffiti BBDO I was tasked with creating a slice of a huge outdoor print for PEPSI's 50th anniversary in Romania. Each slice of the print represented a particular decade of Pepsi in our country, and luckily I was the designated 90's artist which was... pretty amazing since I grew up in the 90's and had the exact vibe in mind.
A thematic illustration and sticker variants created for the local Creative Mornings branch. The theme of the month was magic, so I couldn't help delving into the obscure arts for this edition.
Working side by side with Paula Rusu and Rares Cinteza, I created the KV illustration for Visual Playground 2016.

We heavily debated the background color before going for an electric yellow that ultimately everyone loved.
Key Visual illustrations commissioned by TOMI, a local ketchup brand. These served as KVs for their social media and festival campaign in 2016. The brief required something fun, youthful and featuring food that goes great with ketchup, of course.
