About Victor

Director: Creative and StrategicGraphic and Spatial design

Consultation and coordination of Diversity Projects for the: Arts; Indigenous communities; Health and Youth; Outreach; and Culturally and Linguistically Diverse sectors.

I have over 18 years professional experience in the communication, graphics, curatorial and exhibition design fields. I have a passion for profound projects that incorporate social justice, design and new media amplification. This passion has guided me through my career and has led to the development and implementation of projects for cultural icons such as: Arts NSW; the Naisda Dance Company; New Mardi Gras and City of Sydney.

My professional practice has crossed the diversity spectrum and I adopt a holistic approach when assessing client communication strategies. Projects I have coordinated include: new media campaigns accessing refugee networks; research into oral history transmogrification; curatorial of significant exhibitions, such as the Nelson Mandela project for MLC Gallery.
