Ioana Parvan
Freelance graphic designer, art director and illustrator, based in Bucharest.
I realize that being in this business since 1998 doesn't mean too much. Yet in so many years, of which 18 were spent in agency, where projects hardly repeated, I learned and I grew with every single project I worked on.

I have a Fine Arts degree, but I'm self-educated in graphic design, a survival mode that developed into a profession/religion. My first brain food in '98 was a few issues of Ray Gun and Creative Review, praised like jewels. Followed by The Designers Republic, Hi-Res!, Pentagram, Mother, Traktor. Skittles and Diesel commercials left a serious mark, then Kurt Vonnegut, Büro Destruct, Chris Ware, more Pentagram, Johnson Banks, OhNo Type, Droga5, photojournalism and street photography, Sagmeister & Walsh, the list is long.

Now I work as a freelancer on branding and illustration projects (12 years of art school pays off), packaging and wayfinding, aiming to keep a high level of idea and execution. Clearly I put my eggs in too many baskets, but I love them all and in the end that's my strength.
