My name is Emanuel Zahariades.
I graduated from Central Saint Martins with a degree on graphic design, but I've always wanted a business card that would say "visual communication" or "visual designer." Then I read an article about how visual designers get upset with graphic designers, who go around calling themselves visual designers, and I didn't want to get in any kind of trouble, so I decided to describe myself as a graphic designer.
I really enjoy making typography and photography look good together, especially when they're combined with a simple, clean and effective design. I guess the new business card should probably say "editorial designer", even though I don't know how visual designers would feel about that. I have a passion for magazine design; I love magazines and I'm probably the guy you see in Magma, discreetly trying to smell the pages of Monocle and apartamento.
Design for print, typography and art direction are what make most of my work experience; I have worked for clients such as Time Inc., the UCL Urban Laboratory and Hunter Boots, to name a few. As a freelance designer and artworker, I have joined creative and design agencies, working alongside some lovely and talented creative directors, designers and copywriters on editorial, branding and art direction projects.
If you want to know more about what I do, if you too love magazines or just want to discuss business card titles options, then the icons at the bottom of the page will help you get in touch.
