LAST UPDATED AUGUST 2019  -  HI EVERYONE :)  

I am Calin, a multi-disciplinary designer. Born in Europe, I now live and work in Auckland City, New Zealand.

My journey is a little different than the most. I started my career by enrolling at an International Business University with grand plans of becoming a financial expert. After realizing that I quite frankly, sucked at it, I started over again going to Uniteh University for Design and began teaching myself design at the age of 23.

Fast forward, after a few years and a whole lot of hard work - especially due to emigrating in a new country at the age of 34, I am now a designer, founder, father and once again, student.

I am the co-founder of WebCreativeStore™, an online design studio mainly focused on RWD websites for B2B.

After opening my own design studio, I had the opportunity of developing products and services for companies such as Peerpoint LLC, Iconoclast Concepts, BigShed and Dach Painting to name a few.

Previously, I worked as an Art Director & Video Designer at Realitatea TV in Bucharest, from the very beginning of the channel's birth and for 4 years to come right until when Realitatea TV  become the leading News Channel in Romania.

In addition to my work at Auckland Transport, I am an advisor and the creative mind for some of my friends' projects.

Friends and collegues agree that I am a nice guy with a great sense of humour.

"Had the pleasure of working with Calin at Auckland Transport. The work he produced for my team was outstanding and always produced a surprise & delight factor. Work from him, and the Design Studio team, was beyond all expectations from an in-inhouse Studio."

I have personally worked with Calin during his career as Art Director at Realitatea TV Channel and I will strongly recommend him to any client for his natural talent as designer. He has a high creativity and a very keen eye to details. His concepts and art direction campaigns for the studio show a professional with high expertise of synthesizing graphically the true essence of clients brands identities.

The "Moodboard" is a collection of my personal work and experiments and emotional pics I found online over the years. Most of these I had them for few years on my Tumblr account until I recently decided to move them into a new home.
