I’m interested in graphic design and photo manipulation since my early teenage years. In elementary school and high school, I was studying in Waldorf education where I had art classes and theater plays. One of my school projects was a fictive newspaper that I designed from a blank page in Adobe InDesign, I wrote fictive news as well for the project. After high school, I studied communication and media at ELTE, where I also attended graphic design and web design courses.
In 2014 I started working as a freelance designer, between 2014-16 I made several application booklets for Inforg M&M productions such as On Body And Soul and Brazilok. In 2016 I worked as a graphic designer for the third season of the HBO series called Terápia. In Terápia I designed fictive book covers, websites, t-shirts, and a real-looking Blikk newspaper with fabricated stories about the main actress, Dorottya Udvaros. In 2016-17 I worked on the movie poster for On Body and Soul by Ildikó Enyedi, the winner of Golden Bear at the Berlinale films festival, and was also nominated for the Oscars. The poster was used in Hungary and as an international poster as well. I also designed social media posts, banner campaigns, billboards, brochures, and ads in the Variety and Hollywood Reporter magazines. After the success, I had the opportunity to design the application booklet for Ildikó’s next film, The Story Of My Wife.
In 2017 I started working at the leading social media agency in Hungary called Be Social. I worked for big companies like Tesco, Renault, Nestea, Telenor, Media Markt, and smaller local companies as well. I designed social media posts, banner campaigns, websites, and offline ads and also learned motion design and basic 2d animation skills. In 2018-19 I redesigned the logo and the website of Be Social, which is still proudly used by them since then. In 2019 I worked as a graphic designer in the art department team of The Story of My Wife under the guidance of production designer Imola Láng, directed by Ildikó Enyedi. The film was a co-production of four countries with a total budget of 10 million euros and with international actors such as Léa Seydoux, Gijs Naber, and Louis Garrel. The movie had about 40 outside and 20 inside locations, was shot in three countries and was played in Europe in the 1920s. We designed every kind of graphic from shop displays, restaurant menus, cigarette packets, posters, street signs, and brandings for ships, to book covers, fictive newspapers, food packaging, perfume designs, vinyl covers, and more. In 2020-21 I worked on the movie poster of The Story of My Wife, which debuted at the Cannes Film Festival in July 2021 and was also nominated for Palme d’Or.
In 2021 August I quit Be Social and started working on a film called The Invitation, a Sony Pictures Screen Gems production directed by Jessica M. Thomson, starring Nathaline Emmanuel. One of my main projects was designing four family crests that were adapted to real paintings, embroideries, statues, and even modern logos and wine labels along the film. I also designed graphics for props and lots of external and internal scenes. In 2022 I participated in two international film projects as a graphic designer, All the Light We Cannot See by Netflix (in the props team) and LEE (directed by Ellen Kuras) starring Kate Winslet, in the team of Gemma Jackson (production designer) with Lisa Williams (lead graphic designer). I also worked with Imola Láng in some advertisements and theatre sets (Konica Minolta, OTP, SZEX. ÚJRA. EL.).
Apart from graphic design as a hobby, I’m also interested in writing and performing music. Since 2015 I published 2 full-length albums under an electronic music duo called Paperdeer, written soundtracks for short films, and performed more than 100 concerts in 16 different countries with a pop duo called Belau.
