Design for me was never just an option – it is a way of life. I’ve studied abroad in UK and hold a BA on Graphic Design and an MA on Human-Computer Interaction Design. I’ve started my career 7 years ago at a small local print agency in Athens, Greece and after working in start ups, small design studios, Ad agencies, and global corporations, I am now the Lead Designer for a major client at IBM Interactive Experience – a new division within IBM, which has been named the largest digital-agency network in the world. I’ve joined IBMiX two years ago and I am an active speaker, a guest lecturer, an industry mentor, and get invited as a judge/mentor at multiple hackathons and design events across Europe. I am passionate about design & digital and one of my missions is to empower more women into design & technology and help connect the gaps between design education and the tech industry.
