Agency BoonOctober 2013 - Present

The company (eLiberare Design was called right in the beginning) was new and we moved to various areas of industry. eLiberare was the main NGO and eLiberare Design was the economic side of the NGO, it was a way to sustain our campaigns and stuff. One year ago we created Good Bureau for NGO activities and Agency Boon as a web agency.

I started in 2013 as Front End Developer doing websites mainly on square-space. After a while, we moved to WordPress. I had to adapt very quick. In the beginning, I was doing the design and then building the websites, but after a while, I moved more to the UX area and UI leaving development for developers.

I also help the firm growing in processes and structure, writing steps, creating assets and developing team players with my knowledge. Most of the things that I was doing I didn't know them before, I had to learn them (from Lynda, online tutorials, youtube and searching lots of things on google), to fail a lot of times but never giving up. In the beginning, we did everything that came to a web agency, from the website, landing pages, e-shops, social media graphics to print materials, infographics (Adobe Illustrator), books layouts (Adobe In and Copy) and some video (Premier), motion graphics (After Effects).

Right now, what I'm doing is working in a team made up of 4 people (project manager, task manager, developer and me as a designer). I receive or do wireframes, prototyping pages and after everything, it's settled I move to build the design on them. I use Adobe Photoshop as the main app for design but I have also a lot of experience in Sketch, Adobe XD, and Illustrator. After building the design, I prepare the assets and hand them over to developer aside with a style tile and UI guide. Most of the times after the development part it's done I assist developers with testing and adjusting design aspects on responsive.

One of many things that I appreciate about this experience is my colleagues, very dedicated and very kind.

BBSOJanuary 2009 - Present

BBSO it's a church located in Oradea, and since the beginning, I handled most of the design graphics. In the beginning, I was handling most of the social media, print, and graphics for it but after time I helped to create a vision and develop the department.

My vision for BBSO since early years was to become a worldwide known community-based in a small city from eastern Europe with influence. We develope it as a brand and then all the content to follow it.

Now the brand it's all around the popular social media platforms such as Youtube, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, music cloud platforms such as Apple Music, Spotify, Google Music, Amazon and so on.

My responsibilities are related to strategies and implementing them and also creating a unitary graphic design for products.

11DigitsMay 2012 - October 2013

When I start working for 11Digits I was new in web agencies area. I worked before as a freelancer doing a lot of things for many people. It was my first experience in a team and it was a very good place to learn and I met a lot of kind and nice people.
I start doing web designs for WordPress, Drupal, Magento, and Joomla. After a period we started to offer branding services and this is how i was introduced to Adobe Illustrator.

My responsibility was like this, I was working with a project manager/marketing guy, he was building the wireframes and gather content and I was just building the design. After that, I was handling the design to the developer and that was all. My initial responsibilities were very small but after time I moved to a product manager position, and I was also assisting the project manager in research area to make sure the wireframes and the experience is proper and also assisting developers to make sure the websites are built proper, so I had to learn HTML, CSS, and javascript.
