I have a Master of Fine Arts degree with a major in graphic design and illustration and in my work I want to contribute to better communication through typography and graphic design. My belief is that good design make a difference in our lives because its concern with structure, function and aesthetics. I am active as a translator from and to Romanian, I like working with children's culture and design books that explore the boundaries between textual and visual communication. I am also running the micro publishing house pionier press which publish bilingual children's and youth books, books about typography and Romanian topics.

My research area is typography with a focus on the relationship between typography and politics. Currently I am researching about typography in the Romanian newspapers during the communist time (1948–1989). What did the typographic landscape looked like and which was the role of typography in conveying the political message?
