My name is Nikos Gazetas and I am a graphic designer and instructor of the Adobe software as far as it concerns print media. I live and work in Athens, Greece but I am willing to relocate.
Designing for print in combination with the educational process take up most of my time in the day!
Since July 2011 until February 2012 I worked in a photography studio retouching images of people and products and creating corporate catalogues.
Since May 2009 until June 2011 I collaborated with "Anodos S.A." (*) Adobe Authorised Training Centre and official retailer for Adobe in Greece, as an Instructor for Photoshop and InDesign. Essential qualification for Instructors is to be Certified by Adobe, so I was also certified, first as an Expert and then as an Instructor.
Since 2007 until the December of 2010 I was collaborating with Lyhnia offset print bureau. I was in the prepress department designing for the company's clients a great variety of works. From leaflets, for their advertising needs, to product catalogues, corporate magazines and local newspapers. Great advantage on my workflow is that I know very well the automations and the details of the software, which gives me the opportunity to work in fast paces under time pressure.
I also know how to colour correct photographs, retouch images and illustrate using Photoshop. Lately I am training myself on ePubs and how to create magazines for mobile devices like the iPad. I am fortunate enough to be experienced in this new creative field that can open new dimensions for magazines, newspapers, even catalogues for corporate clients.
Since 2005 I am seminar instructor on d.t.p software (Photoshop, Illustrator & InDesign) at ΑΚΤΟ college of art and design (*). Passing the knowledge to other people, professional or not, is a procedure that I like as also the sociality that a position like this requires
My constant evolution helps me stay in touch with technology and train myself endlessly on the new versions of the software and the new trends on graphic design and publications.
I would be glad to have news from you soon. In case the position has been covered please keep my CV for future use.
