Like all people with not enough time on their hands, I don’t have a proper picture of myself. But here is a shot of this desk, my messy design partner.

I am Ion Barbu, a graphic designer based in Bucharest, Romania. I specialize in packaging and identity design and take a special pleasure in crafting wine labels, choosing bottles and special cap enclosures. I also enjoy photography and copywriting. Giant Pencil is just another name for what we designers call inspiration, that thing that comes crushing from up above like, as a forgotten artist said it, “a giant pencil from the sky”.

Feel free to contact me if you think that there is something I can do for you.
