I’m a graphic design student born in Bulgaria, grown in Belgium and recently graduated from Central Saint Martins in London, UK. My work includes, but is not limited to, editorial design, identity, publishing and curation.

Ultimately, I find my role as a designer to be a translator of information in all of its rigorous aspects, carefully thinking about the aesthetic and theoretic details behind each project I embark on. 

Currently looking for work!
