Catalin Popa / Graphic Designer / Digital Artist Age: 48

"Catalin Popa's work is a perfect mix between the artistic approach of a designer and the high-tech knowledge of a computer guru. He really can make things look more appealing (either they are products or services). The awards that he receive came after intensive personal studies on art directing and Catalin Popa reached the point where he knows what different categories of consumer would like to see."
