BARBARA PANAGIOTIDOU ―
Barbara Panagiotidou is a graphic designer with a long experience in all aspects of visual communication and typographic design. From 2000 until 2011 she has worked for leading design agencies and has been involved as a freelancer in design collectives and partnerships.
During that time she has gained expertise across a wide range of graphic applications for medium to large industries, including branding and corporate id, publications, packaging, typography, environmental and experiential graphic design.
She has worked for diverse clients, local and international, from various fields of interest: from fashion, music and film to corporate firms, institutions and museums.
Her involvement and experimentation with traditional typographic techniques and screen printing in later years and her love for photography has sparked a deep interest in exploring the possibilities that can be found lying between analog and digital media.
