Tell us something about yourself!
My background is in a graphic/book/paper design.
But being the 90’s kid I was always driven to digital and web worlds. Additionally to my classic old school arts and graphic design skills I have acquired the necessary digital skills to build my own online projects. After many individual, creative and mostly artistic projects, I have settled down on Hype app. My current venture and baby, which I invest all my time and knowledge into.
