questionnaire

1.)     What was your very first job? 

Ice Cream Factory... :) I was the only person exceeding their "personal daily dose of ice cream" quota... by 3 times... :)

 

2.)     Please describe, in your own words, what your job is and what work it entails. 

I'm a Creative Lead at Netflix: focusing on Imagery, Innovation and Creative Standards.

 

3.)     How did you discover that the creative world was right for you? Was there a time in your life that you credit to this discovery? What was there train of events that brought you to where you are today? 

I did not plan to become who I am today... the only thread(-s) that I can find in all this is everlasting need of experimenting with the form, curiosity and selflessness. All this allowed me to be trusted with my decisions and ideas.

 

4.)     In your constantly growing and expanding industry, how do you find inspiration to keep your work fresh, innovative and relevant? 

I "reshape" everything in my head, constantly. Images, situations, smells, sounds, colors... I feel like all this is constantly "collaged" and mixed by my thoughts.

 

5.)     If you had to pick one piece of work or project that you are most proud of, more for the creative work and innovation it required, rather than its recognition or industry “success,” what would it be? 

I'm very happy I can find time to create my series of non-commercial posters - all heavy on metaphors, slightly surreal yet have a story behind.

 

6.)     Which creative disciplines are you most interested in and use the most? i.e.: photography, film, social, experiential etc

Storytelling in poster design and/or photography (editorial).
