— HI! I'M GINO.

I'm a creative and conceptual thinker with a strong focus on social issues and human improvement.

As a conceptual creative and recent graduate from the Willem the Kooning Academy in Rotterdam within the Social Practises, I enjoy working on projects with a societal issue. 
From a strong commitment and curiosity to society, I take every challenge as an opportunity and I know how to make the translation from the abstract to the visual. The projects I already had the pleasure to work on shows a mix of conversational and activating campaigns and concepts that change our outlook on the environment, provide insight and involve relevant parties.
