Photo of stand, Philoxenia 2006

Just received the photo of the stand described in the previous post, you can now see the differences between the 3d rendering and the real thing!

Special Organizer Award!

The stand I designed for the Region of Eastern Macedonia- Thrace got a Special Organizer Award from Helexpo at the Philoxenia Fair, the Greek International Tourism Fair, held each November in Thessaloniki. See the colored drawings below. The interesting thing about the stand was the decoration with dried leaves and various nuts in the glass inlay floors.

The Thrill And The Hurting

Once, a year or so ago, Kyla, a nice young lady I met on a Kate Bush forum, Homeground, had an idea about making a nice collection of art inspired by Kate Bush, made by her fans, and handed over to her. Now it has become a lovely little book which has thrilled all of us that contributed to it and finds lots of admirers even outside the Kate Bush fandom. The book is called The Thrill And The Hurting, from a lyric of Kate. You can order it from uk by clicking on the title of this post. You can see the cover here and my two contributions: two oil & pastel paintings of Kate Bush from the Running Up That Hill video clip. Enjoy.

The cover:

The first painting - actually the small one but it takes up a whole page in the book:

The second painting which is larger but takes up two thirds of a page in the book, ending up looking smaller than the previous one:

Award again!

Today I learned that one of the stands I designed for the Infosystem fair (PC trade fair in Thessaloniki) won an award for best designed stand. The company I work for had 5 stands at the show and 4 of them got an award. Of course it was relatively easy, considering that the fair was small and most of the companies participating as exhibitors did not have big budgeted stands at the show. You can see a couple of 3d renderings of the stand below, photos to follow when available.

The 80s had their moments too....

Here are some looks picked randomly from my Christy Turlington archive that show how the 80s had good moments as well as bad - it was not all bad design and bad clothing! This comes after my favorite fashion blogger, The Sartorialist, posted photos from London girls doing the 80s revival. Most of the negative comments condemned the whole decade as bad for fashion, but with the photos here, I beg to differ.

Stand photos

I finally got the photos from the official photographer, not very good but they are the only ones so far. Looks good, doesn΄t it? We had a bit of a problem with the water wall - it was splashing water further than expected, hence the Plexiglas panels around the pebble tank.

I learned today that the exhibition stand I designed for the EYDAP company (it is the company that provides and maintains the water and drainage network in Athens) won an award for Best Stand at T.I.F. (Thessaloniki International Fair). Feeling happy as it is one of my favorite stands in T.I.F. I will post photos of it as soon as I get some from the official photographer.

Muse and inspiration

And to start with a nice photo, here is my favorite model of all time, muse and inspiration, Christy Turlington! The photo is from the August issue of US Vogue, courtesy of Conde Nast Inc.

A few words about myself...

I am a designer, working in an architectural firm. We design and construct stands for exhibitions, museums (permanent and temporary exhibitions as well as the buildings themselves), offices, shops, showrooms and special installations as well as public spaces. The company I work for has a website, , where you can see more of the work we do.
I have also studied fashion design and as a civil engineer for some years - but I never got around getting my degree. The world of design was much more appealing to me and finally won me over completely. I really enjoy doing what I do!
I live and work in Thessaloniki, although my job has taken me to many places, in Greece and abroad. I enjoy meeting people, getting to know them and learn from them - it makes life so much more interesting!

First post, hello to everyone!

This is my first post! My blog is beggining. I hope I will be able to keep up a bit with this, as I am new to blogging and it's been ages since I kept a diary of any kind. Please bear with me as I get used to this. I hope I have something of importance to say for others. More to come in the next days.
