My name is Tomi and I am a multidisciplinary self-taught graphic designer. Born and raised in Arad, Romania - currently living in Bucharest, 24 years old - a golden number I might say.
I am really happy that I turned my passion into my career so I can say I truly enjoy what I do. I started out over 10 years ago by doing forum signatures, photo edits and just having fun with Photoshop - it was like a game to me and I was just having fun. I was around 13 at that time.
I started doing posters for concerts and gigs as a teenager and started getting paid for it. That’s when I realised I can make a living out of what I like doing. At 18 I started my ﬁrst job as a graphic designer at Webo Printshop - seeing my ﬁrst outdoor banner was a great feeling. I started to learn more about the technical aspect of design and I have also started freelancing just about then - working with clients from all over the world on all kinds of projects.
At some point in the journey, I felt the need to expand my expertise and knowledge. I got called in for an interview at Hueman Advertising, and I really enjoyed the agency atmosphere so I joined their team. I learned a lot about the digital aspect of design there while sharing my print and execution knowledge.
A few months later, I was hired in a remote position for a pretty complex project in which I was required to design the UI. After that ended, I started NIU LEVEL - a ﬁrm and identity under which I can pursue my path and work on my own.
I’m also a musician and really passionate about music. I also grew that hobby separately and nowdays I have started an independent music label and studio that gathered a loyal fan base and 4 million views with 15K subscribers on YouTube - in a language spoken by 22 million people. So, yeah, I have two hobbies from when I was a kid that I carried on succesfully doing
