Biography/Work Experience

I completed my bachelor and master degree studies at Vilnius Academy of Arts (VAA) and have been working as a freelance designer since then. Since 2012, I have been a member of the Lithuanian Graphic Design Association (LGDA). Currently I have been actively working on the creation of package and brand identity and also a doctoral student of Design at VAA. My focus on doing the interdisciplinary project and exploring ways of application of neuroscience in package design.

Philosophy on Work

Designing is not a profession but a lifestyle, a model of thinking and of understanding the world, or even an obsession, you name it. It is only with this mindset that you can achieve best results. The journey toward the goal starts from a close cooperation where a designer is perceived not as a service provider but rather as a partner. Working together to identify problems and needs enables us to take a proper implementation plan and then – which is equally as important – to review the results. Because the role of a designer is that of a modern-day Sherlock Holmes.
