Art Director, Heraldist Creative
Born and raised in Romania, always forward thinking, curios and inspired by the Eastern Bloc. He started experimenting with visual communication in the form of illegal street art back in 2005 but as he sought more possibilities his interest migrated rapidly into the digital world. After a long period of trial and error, he managed to cover a wide range in the field of graphic design from print to web to creating the corporate identity for S.E.C., the biggest solar company provider in Lithuania. Zorán at this point is keeping himself busy also with VJing, interior design, copywriting, occasional photography, club promoting and in his none to less spare time daydreaming.
He couldn't figure out if this "jack of all trades, master of none" is a good thing or not but he certainly isn't bored.
Art Director, Heraldist Creative
After initially starting off as a filmmaker, Noémi completed her studies as an animator, all the while working as a freelance graphic designer and illustrator. She commisioned print illustration, branding and app design, while her animated shorts traveled the international festival circuit. She is a lot of things, but the reality is, she just likes to design and draw stuff, and occasionally make them move and give them some personality, kind of like a wizard. She wouldn’t be caught dead without her sketchbook, but on the rare occasions when she’s not in front of a computer or canvas, she practices hand-printing on fabric, restoring old furniture and thinking about typography.
When Heraldist found her, she decided to put her storyteller nature to good use and join the team to make some magic together.
Copywriter, Heraldist Creative
Handsome and trustworthy, 36 years old male, only child with excellent family background, well educated and settled, God fearing man; suitable match for a creative agency.
Strategic Planner, Heraldist Creative
Like all great love stories, Teodora’s love affair with marketing happened by chance. She was doing an elective course at her university in Glasgow when she discovered her true passion: marketing. And the rest was history. Well, not really. But pretty much. She interned at Heraldist for a few weeks in 2015 after which she returned to the United Kingdom to further her knowledge with a masters in Marketing Communications. It’s the dynamics and how all things connect in this field that swept her off her feet. Passionate about all things challenging, Teodora just loves always learning new things about brands, people and markets and what makes them tic.
Teodora is a bit of a musicoholic, her life is a constant stream of sounds and songs that blend to form a formidable playlist. There’s never a quiet or dull moment with her. She’s always curios and hungry for more and she seldom lets a day pass without learning something new.
