Personal Profile

Hi, I’m Stefan and I have over 12 years experience working in gaming marketing design and some experience in web development. The latter which I’ve carried over and has assisted me as a graphic designer. I am based in Malta.
During these years I’ve gained a wide range of skills and expertise in multimedia and graphic design. I truly enjoy working within a team but I’m also comfortable working independently. I enjoy challenging myself with learning new and more efficient ways to improve my skills. My colleagues describe me as fast and able to work under pressure while maintaining an eye for detail.
Currently at Betsson, I take care of creating different types of media that are used as email, onsite, affiliates, Bannerflow, print etc. In 2015, when working for Amaya, I upgraded and supervised all visual creatives through a migration to a new platform. It was a high-pressure task with a tight deadline, but myself and the team managed to bring the project home two days before deadline.

A selection of my work portfolio can be seen both on this site and on my LinkedIn account.

I speak English, Italian and Maltese fluently. In 2007, I received an International Advanced Diploma in Computer Studies (NCC Educ. Limited/London Metropolitan University).

Other Interests

Boardgames, drawing, collecting fantastical miniatures, sailing, reading comics and recently I’ve delved into the world of 3D printing! Though, of course, what designer worth his mettle is not into art, music or photography? I’ve always been mesmerised by the power of these mediums to convey a powerful message to the viewer. I have plucked a few strings on my guitar every now and then and often hours melt by when focused on a sketch with a pencil clenched firmly in hand. However, the magic of holding on to a moment in time with the ease of pushing a simple button has to be one of humankind’s greatest achievements! I love it!
