Since 1995, I have been designing and producing books, leaflets, posters and other printed material. I can execute and oversee all the stages of a publication production from the concept design to the finished product. I can design your logo and help you build your corporate identity and also assist you in efficiently implementing your marketing goals regarding design and printed material.
My love for books dates well before my professional practice. I've had the chance to design and produce some wonderful books for which I am proud and thankful to all those people that always need to contribute for a book "to be born". My involvement with environmental issues and nature conservation since the 80s has led me to "specialize" in environmental projects.
For more than fifteen years now I have been working in many projects with the Hellenic Society for the Protection of Nature for which I have been designing and producing not only it's quarterly publication "η φύση" ("i fisi" = nature), but also the material for The Blue Flag program and numerous books, leaflets etc.
I have also had the chance to work with companies OIKOS and OMEPE in a series of environmental centers across Greece, with the National and Kapodestrian University of Athens, the University of of Ioannina, with the Hellenic Centre for Marine Research, the 23rd Ephorate of Byzantine Antiquities and with companies like Grecotel, Pechiney Hellas, AirLiquide Hellas, Radio Korasidis, Brainstorm Software, Biometrix, Kyklos medical, Harta, Ilivaton e.a.

This is a 128 pages, 24x28.5cm, hardcover book, produced in 2016 for the Municipality of Filothei-Psychiko.
In this 270 pages, 24,5x31cm, hardcover, luxuriously illustrated book we showcase Kuwait’s major coral reefs and their wildlife, primarily through photos we have taken ourselves and with the help of volunteer efforts of friends and visiting acquaintances. This book is an interpretative guide, it uses photography to showcase what scientists know about coral reefs; what we have seen and where, and how these unique ecosystems are truly worth preserving.
I am especially proud of this book as I was involved in every stage of the project, from the concept and initial project design to expedition arrangement, underwater photography and then layout, color correction and supervising the production in the printing and binding stages.
