My short story
I have been interested in visual arts since I was a teenager. Unfortunately, I had no access to a college or university at the time which offered applied visual arts education, so I had to learn the necessary skills on my own. Shortly thereafter I had the opportunity to work with some expert photographers and graphic artists allowing me to improve further. My skills and experience now cover a wide range of Creative Arts techniques, allowing me to fulfil complex tasks as well as to develop custom solutions for specific purposes.
Took part in big things
Ministry of Defence
1989 – 1993
During my obligatory national service, I worked in the Ministry of Defence in Hungary. When I accomplish my service, my chiefs found my skills and experiences valuable, so they offered me a civilian place and asked me to stay in my position. My programmer side rooted at that time.
1994 – 1997
GRAPHISOFT® ignited the BIM revolution in 1984 with ArchiCAD®, the industry’s first BIM software for architects. I was one of two graphic designers who worked on all outgoing print and digital materials including documentation as well as product and corporate image.
1997 – 2003
Index.hu was the first real online news portal in Hungary and it is still one of the biggest to date. I contributed to the foundation of the site and company and thereafter I was leading the design group of both insider and outsider projects which included online solutions like web design and development.
