My philosophy

I believe that good design stems from digging really deep into things.

I am a graphic designer based in Cleveland, Ohio with a BFA in design from The University of Akron. I was born in Budapest, Hungary and moved to the United States when I was thirteen years old. Ever since I can remember, there have been a few constant things around me that made life worth living for me. These are (in no particular order): my family, art, music, chocolate, traveling, and tea. I enjoy being a nerd about everything and anything. In everyday design, my motivation is to learn something new with every project.

Research and concepting are my favorite parts of the design process, because it allows me to learn about new topics and technology I otherwise might never would have known about. I view each project as an opportunity to challenge myself and become better at my craft. I like to work in an engaging environment where I can meet new people and have interesting conversations, and find that I do my best work when I push myself out of my comfort zone and think of new ways to solve problems. I have a passion for typography and illustration, and a strong interest in environmental design.
