[learn_more caption="Web Design"]The thing I love doing most of all is Web Design. Since the late 1990′s I have been playing around the web, designing & building web sites for fun and for the gain a better understanding of the web. During that time my experience and knowledge  has grown to a level that I consider very good! You can view some of my projects, online or offline in the projects section and the personal stuff section. I didn’t upload all the designs I have done in the past years because they exceed 500 designs. They vary from commercial, to business, to art, to high tech designs and more. So if you like my work and feel that a web site is needed for you or your business or for fun contact me here or use the contact page to view my contact details and maybe telephone me directly!

[learn_more caption="SEO"]Search Engine Optimization is my passion! I love getting a website to rank high in the SERPs! I find SEO challenging and intimidating at the same time. It gives me a rush. What I find more interesting is the fact the search engines, especially Google, change their search algorithm creating new and exiting ways to rank my client’s websites high. During the past 3 years I have been specializing in Hotel SEO.[/learn_more]

[learn_more caption="Animations"]The web has changed allot since I 1st started working in this field. This is because of great tools that can be used to create great animations that enhance the web experience. The best in my humble opinion is Macromedia Flash. Now with the coming of MX 2004 the Flash platform gives designers immense power over animation. With the combination of sound, image, 3D and video things look and feel allot better. I have been playing around with this technology for 4 years now. I had my 1 st experiences in the early 2000 when I was employed at Postscriptum. Since then I have participated in many flash animation projects and enjoyed every minute of it! You can see some of my work in the commercial projects section and the personal stuff section.

[learn_more caption="Banners"]Advertising on the web has always been an issue in the e-marketing guys office chat. Well no matter how many years go by the oldest and most commonly used method is still the favorite one. That is the art of making banners! Well I call it an art because you have to have the ability to get many messages into a very small space. But the messages have to be appealing and have to sell, otherwise… well what’s the point! If you want to see some of my banners just go to my commercial section and have a peek. [/learn_more]

[learn_more caption="Video"]This is the latest of my experimentations. I think that the web is maturing and growing and that video is at last finding its place in the web industry. Broadband and great technologies like Flash MX 2004 have revolutionized the way video is and should be on the internet. I am an amateur video guy. Just a few minor visual effects are in my repertoire. I haven’t done anything professionally so you wont find anything in my commercial projects section. Some of the few things I have done are in the personal stuff section. [/learn_more]

[learn_more caption="User Interface Design"]One of the most challenging and filling parts of design for me is UID. What I mean when I say UID is the design process when creating the interface of a software application, or an online CMS, or a database form layout, etc. I have been very lucky to have the opportunity to have had tons of experience in this field thanks to the company called oDesk that is in the states. oDesk creates offline and online software and has been cooperating with me in this for over 2 years now. I have had the pleasure of designing a video player / recorder, tons of icons and buttons, software screens, etc. You can read more about my work for oDesk in my commercial projects section.

[learn_more caption="Logo Design"]This is a hard cookie!!! I think I must admit that logo design for me is the hardest of all the services I provide. This is because a logo carries the weight of a company, marks the future of it and its past (if there is one) and the entire look and feel of it. Logos should really be studied before being presented to the client because each and every proposal should have good reasons why it was made as it was made. This way it is easier for the client’s client to understand it without help from anybody else. You can find logo designs in my commercial projects section. [/learn_more]

[learn_more caption="Web Consulting"]I love sharing ideas over projects. I love giving advice to people that need it and are willing to listen to it. Good advice is hard to find and it is much harder to accept it. I try to do my best in this field. I have many clients that trust my judgement and have benefited from my long experience in the internet field. I believe the main thing is to provide your client with a reason why and then everything else falls into place. [/learn_more]

[learn_more caption="Photography"]I always had a catch for photography as a kid. I remember playing around with my dad’s Nikon EN when I was just 13 years old. I enjoy capturing the images that everyday life provides to us. So many feelings can be trapped into the right moment. The trick is to get that moment exactly. Then you have a successful image you can call a good photo. I am an amateur photographer; I would never call my self a professional of the business. I use my digital camera to capture images to use in my projects. I prefer this to buying very expensive images from image banks. As you can see my site is full of image taken by me SONY. In my personal stuff section you can find some of my favourite photographs I am willing to share with you.[/learn_more]

[learn_more caption="Teaching"]I love teaching! I have been teaching since 1999. I started out as a private tutor for people that were interested in learning the basics about PC’s and windows. As time went by and my students got better, I began teaching all the Office programmes and got into more advanced tutoring taking over classes in the Future Kids schools and more freelance students. Since then I have had over 15 personal students in private tutoring and completed 6 months in the class room with kids, teenagers and adults. I prefer private tutoring, that is why I didn’t continue with my class room activities. I like the full attention of my students and unfortunately a class room isn’t always as ideal as I like. At this time I teach web design techniques and photo retouching to people in Athens .[/learn_more]
