About Me

selfie charles

I am a Digital Designer, Art Director and Developer with over 8 years of experience.

I am also a teaching assistant at the Geneva School of Art and Design (HEAD – Genève) where I teach Unity development and game prototyping to second year bachelor students, and the basics of art direction and digital illustration to first year students.

I can demonstrate a large spectrum of art, design and technical skills. I am a perpetual student of everything creative, always challenging what I know and pushing back the boundaries of my comfort zone.

I am an avid digital painter, you can see some of my work on instagram.

I run two tumblr blogs: ultrazapping.net, dedicated to modern and experimental graphic design
and objects & matters, where I collect photos that I use as references in my paintings.

I also play around producing and mixing music (you can listen to it on my soundcloud).
