I strongly believe in brands or products that showcase an intelligent and witty touch of creativity.



— About


— I’m a multidisciplinary creative thinker. Known by my digital pseudonym Gydient, I bring expertise as an art director specializing in digital brand design, kinetic typography, motion design. Currently, my exploration extends to VR/AR/XR development and generative AI.

— My extensive network gets things done. With almost 6 years of industry experience, I’ve collaborated with a diverse range of creative minds, serving renowned clients like Google, Nike, Adobe, Amazon, Sonos, Pull&Bear, and more.

— My true passion lies in working with startups, where I excel in helping them craft visual identities and build their brands from the ground up. Notable startups I've participated in working with include OOMI, Gatheround, and xtar.

— I am a passionate builder. As a former co-founder of Fustic.Studio, I have transitioned into the role of a creative partner. In recent years, I have built Exposed Virtual Anonymity (VR/AR Project).

— My works have been recognized by top organizations such as the Art Director Club, Type Director Clubs, Communication Arts, It's Nice That, Adobe, Creative Boom, and Poster House New York.
