Work history, experience, training

{With a first strong expertise as a publisher, I naturally moved on to the graphic part of the job, by designing books collections, original covers, and making promotional materials to promote books and cultural exhibitions. As a volunteer, I worked for various cultural and non-profit associations, endlessly training myself as the needs of my clients required it. Out of personal interest, as a freelancer, I've acquired over the years many skills not only as a designer, but as the person on which my clients can rely to find solutions. Whatever their needs, or what can appear as "problems" I'm at their side to reassure, understand, and to find creative ways to take the next step, with them, to upgrade their communication, boost their business, or reach out to a specific audience. The relation I built with all my clients and partners is made of respect, understanding, and benevolence.  }
