From the professional side of things.
I’m a young designer aspiring to be one of the best in the business in a few years.
Experimenting a lot nowadays with the Adobe Creative suite, mainly with Illustrator, Indesign and Photoshop but sometimes, when I have some time to burn I enjoy playing a lot with Adobe Premiere Pro.
Design started out for me like a passion and now it is my day to day job. I’m pretty much into digital design because I’ve polished this skill by understanding the standards of digital design in Romania but when I get the chance I like playing with print and DTP projects the same way that I like digital design.
Interested social media and blogging and that means I always like to be up to date with every new change in this area of expertise though my main focus right now is understanding everything about advertising and design.
What do I use?

A lot of fonts to diversify typography in layout and webdesign.
