Sébastien Nikolaou was born June 3, 1985 in Patras, Greece. Being a child of a greek father and a french mother, he flawlessly speaks both languages, while he early adopted his parents' national culture and aesthetics.
Sébastien's main passion and occupation is graphic design and illustration. Since his childhood he used to draw all time long. Later, being a teenager, he became a graffiti artist; a fact that taught and inspired him a lot in his coming professional work. At the age of 15 when he got into computers, influenced by cd covers, music artworks and music itself, he started creating his first digital artworks. Almost instantly, it turned into a real passion.
After 3 years of experimenting, it got more serious when his first commercial work was printed. Shortly a graphic designer discovered him and employed him in his creative agency. He worked there for two years, creating posters, flyers, brochures, advertisings, packaging, logos, identities, illustrations, and web sites, gaining a lot of skills and experience.
Sébastien is currently studying at the Graphic Design department of the Technological Educational Institute of Athens. He also runs his own freelance design project called "http://www.sebdesign.eu.
"sebdesign.eu" can't be defined with one word. From functional design to abstract illustrations, bold shapes to fine details, colourful palette, minimal to maximal approach, progressive to retro attitude, his design can challenge your needs, using imagination and hard work.
Sebastien is available for commisioned works and collaborations.
