My name is Luigi Ihnatiuc, and I’ve been named after the Mario Bros video game.
On the internet, I go by as zinodaur.
TIME Magazine's Person of the Year 2006.
I am a 21 year old artist and graphic designer, living in Constanța, Romania. I have been strongly passionate about art, design and everything in between ever since I was a little kid. I had my first gig at 3, when I received a Ghostbusters action figure for drawing elephants. Who you gonna call ?
When I'm not out there trying to make the world a prettier place, I spend my time eating pizza ( ask me about my record ), thinking about puppies and crying myself to sleep watching other people's around the world travel videos at 3 in the morning.
At the risk of sounding pretentious, I will say that to me, being creative is not a job, it's just who I am.
I wake up in the middle of the night sketching down ideas. I stop in the middle of a conversation because a string of words made me think of a new project. I will study a beautifully designed garbage can while in the park, and I will cringe at badly kerned text on a box of wine, meanwhile my friends looking at me like I'm crazy. I have once come to the brink of becoming homeless because of my stubbornness of making a living doing what I love ( and it probably won't be the only time ), and I haven't regretted it a single moment. Because of this, I try my best to be the kind of artist and designer that makes each and every project worth taking a closer look at.
I started trying to make a difference in 2011, and since then I've managed to gain experience in a variety of mediums and techniques by dabbling with illustration, logo design, branding, UX/UI design, icons, webdesign, product design, ad prints, apparel design, book covers, microcontent and more.
So if you have what it takes to think that I have what it takes to be part of your project, I am always eager for that awesome new challenge.
Let's do this !
