    With 10+ years of experience in: - Art Directing - User Interface / User Experience - App / Software Design - Game Concept / Level + Character Design - Web Design - Corporate Branding - Illustration - Graphic Design - Packaging Design - Advertising / Print Design - Photo Editing / Retouching - You name it... Don’t see what you’re looking for up there? Not to worry, I still have quite a few tricks up in my sleeves. Drop me a line and you won't be disappointed. Viusion.com I established Viusion Solutions LTD with one purpose in mind, that was to help others realize their visions. With years of experience in working with entrepreneurs and startups to achieve their goals, we learned that a great vision doesn’t benefit just one single individual, but it involves and impacts on everyone around. A great vision inspires all, and turns everyone into visionaries who strive to make the world a better place. We wish to have the same for our own vision, and that is why we aim to build our success on helping others to succeed. At Viusion, we are teamwork believers. We call our vision a “viusion” instead, as it requires you (u) also, rather than just “I” to accomplish. Andrew Carnegie once said, “Teamwork is the ability to work together toward a common vision. The ability to direct individual accomplishments toward organizational objectives. It is the fuel that allows common people to attain uncommon results.” Our vision is simple. We see a future where every visionary work with each other as “viusionaries”. Through the joined forces of “viusionaries”, we can together achieve the impossible, and make the world a better place.
