After mastering Graphic Design and working on a variety of Print and Advertising Design media, I then morphed into a UX|UI Web Designer, and later into a Frontend Developer. Diploma in Web Design and Development, gained in 2010, smoothed out the metamorphosis.
To make things worse, I was awarded a Master’s Degree in Arts in one of the European Universities, founded in 1579.
That’s it, in a nutshell. In a very small one.
His standard of work has always been high, along with his principles of providing the best for every client.
Serge is an outgoing person with a good sense of humour. He is talented, technically mature, has a good eye for detail, and luxuriant imagination.
With a passion for creativity, Serge is a hands on Designer with natural ability to use colours, styles, composition and whatnot to deliver best design solutions.
I would also like to add that Serge is extremely helpful in teamwork, and a nice fellow you can rely on.

Diploma in Web Design and Development
1 year of super hot Web Design and Developemnt studies at Natcoll, Wellington, gave me both practical and theoretical skills in IT and Web. The very day I got the Diploma, I signed my job contract with Wellington City Council as a Web Coder.
Masters Degree in Arts
It took me 7 years to study Philosophy, Formal Logic, Latin and Greek, History, Arts and Fine Arts with all my passion. The Master’s Degree I gained had no practical application outside of my Alma Mater. However, my logical and systematic thinking wouldn’t be possible without those studies.
