Entry Description

globalFEST, a yearly World Music Festival in NYC, believes that music can be a driving force towards a society that values cultural diversity as a source of unity rather than division. To evoke that, visually defying physical collages using each artist’s photos were created. The repetition and verticality of the artwork convey the ideas of diversity (independent, uneven elements creating unity), amplification of voices, expansion and fluidity of cultural borders, dynamism, growth, all perfectly aligned with the festival’s mission.


I work as Creative Director, Art Director and Visual Designer for advertising, design and digital agencies. On the side, I focus on creative projects for the arts & culture industry, as well as personal visual arts projects.

I love what I do. I love coming up with innovative ideas, creating visual identities, exploring looks & feels, and I love doing it by being hands-on or by directing a team of diversified talents. My focus on craft and passion for solving visual and conceptual problems naturally led every step of my career. From the very beginning working for award-winning creative shops
