A multi-disciplined Art Director and Visual Designer with nine years of international experience within a variety of industries.
Currently based in Berlin.
Originally trained as a Medical Illustrator, Danko has since branched from this discipline and built up his skillset beyond most conventional creative role criteria. Danko relocated from Toronto to Berlin in 2014 after concluding a Teaching position as the Instructor of Design for the Technical Communications Certificate at George Brown College.
Danko is a synesthete and autodidact who strives to constructively integrate clear visual design thinking into development cycles, experimenting with ideas and iterating often.
His design process is both analog and digital, combining traditional and modern methods, mediums, tools, materials and stimuli to experiment, explore ideas and scale solutions for intelligent audiences. He also operates DANKOMADE, a sustainable furniture studio.
After nine years working on international corporate identities, branding, product design, mobile games, app UI & UX and art direction, Danko is now actively seeking a challenging full-time senior creative role in Berlin or beyond.
