Discover the interview of Panos Nikolaou, located in Athens, Greece.
How did you become designer ?
Growing up, I was always experimenting with painting, crafts and photography, so I knew my career would undoubtedly have something to do with art. When I was introduced to the field of graphic design, it combined all my skills that I loved practicing with my passion for art, and I knew it was what I would do in my life. I studied graphic design and desktop publishing and began working initially after graduation for various advertising companies. I later began working independently, as a freelancer, and continue today in the same manner.
How would you define your vision of design, your style ?
My vision and style are based on a clean and minimal design. I portray my vision and style in a simple and unobvious way. I believe that ‘smart’ design speaks a language that is globally understood when stripped down from the unnecessary embellishments.
For the future, what are your professional projects ?
For the future, I will continue to focus on branding, packaging and photography and will continue working independently as a freelancer.
Alongside, I am also working and designing a new jewelry line as a personal project .
What do you like the most in your job ?
What I like the most about my job is having the opportunity of continuously learning something new throughout the many fields associated with each diverse project.
