Biography

Vasilis Magoulas - aka VAMADESIGN - is an award-winning, multidisciplinary Graphic and Web designer from Greece. Vamadesign is his freelance creative graphic design studio, since 2004.

He holds a Diploma of Graphic Design from the Vakalo College of Arts and Design (GR) and a certificated BA (Hons) in Graphic and Web-Multimedia Design from the University of Derby (United Kingdom).

He has a big experience in visual communication, art direction, branding, corporate identity, logotype, poster, invitation, advertisement, brochure, flyer and web design after having worked in advertising companies and creative studios as a graphic designer, web designer, creative-art director and as a freelancer for many projects. He has taught Graphic and Web design at the Ksinis IVT since 2009.

Vasilis delivers a wide variety of services in print, interaction design and creative direction. He creates minimal and clean, non-template creative solutions with a grid-based approach and care about visual balance.

"I love what I do and I want to see the people who trust me their business and personal life, happy" is what Vasilis mentions after all these years in the graphic design field.

His projects have been selected and awarded in graphic design contests, participated in exhibitions and published in magazines and books from publishers all over the world such as Index books, Rockport Publishers, Page One publishing, Hightone, Zeixs, Marc Praquin, Fuct Art, Bright books, Creative Review, New graphic, Publi Metro, Seecoo Culture Communication, HarperCollins, Marketing Week.

Vasilis loves the social design and uses straight-talking messages to get the point across. He shoots photos everywhere. He likes music and expresses himself through music composition and writing lyrics. He enjoys a cup of cappuccino by the sounds of smooth jazz and funky soul beats.
