Creative and Marketing Director, ICYGEN: 2005 – 2010

Transforming marketing goals into original & efficient user experiences

 

I “fell” in the web of web marketing almost by chance. I started at ICYGEN as a Client service/ Sales person until it turned out that most of the creative ideas, concepts, slogans and copywrite were coming from my head.That discovery followed by taking over the position of a Creative & Marketing Director made me euphoric: finally I felt at home on a creative job. The invention of design concepts, original content and interactive experiences for users (UX) demanded both visual and conceptual thinking and an analytical mind.So, unintentionally, I had gone the classical “from brick to click“ road (from the traditional real estate to an innovative digital agency).I had entered web marketing from the sales person door, which I consider a greatest advantage. I am efficiency driven and generate pro-sale ideas, plus I understand clients’ demands perfectly.
