Archaeological Design
From past to life

Looking at stacked piles of stones can be a nice setting for an afternoon stroll, and yet disappointing for the interested visitor, who cannot make sense of it, let alone establish an imaginary idea of what the ancient reality looked like and felt like.

Context is key. Visitors to archaeological sites and museums need to be enabled to fully comprehend what they are looking at. Historical timelines, ground plans, functional graphics, photorealistic illustrations and augmented reality bring the past to life.

Due to my unique skill set of brand and graphic design, product design and ground furnishing, cartography and iconography, wayfinding, guidance and signage, 3D reconstruction and visualizations I am able to offer a holistic experience for visitors to archaeological parks.

Archaeological Visualisations

I love to dive deep into ancient times and study the architectural structures, to the deepest extent scientifically possible.

I'm an observer. The details that define an era are delicate. History of Art gave me the foundations, Photography an eye to drama, Graphic Design the overall techniques and attention to detail that make up for a realistic dive into the past.
