Hello, I'm Lukas and I have found myself completely immersed in the world of design. Visual communication is something that I feel very passionate about, and I enjoy the challenge of testing my creative boundaries.
I have been passionate about art ever since I could remember. Taking that passion and translating it into a powerful message is what lead me to pursue design.
I earned my Bachelor’s in graphic design at the Florence Institute of Design located in Florence, Italy. My studies provided me with insight about the design industry, and it lit a fire within me to explore my own style and brand.
I hope you enjoy my design portfolio! Take a scroll down and explore some of my work. Enjoy, and thank you for your time.

Taking inspiration from “The Odyssey," Odysseus was gone for too long, and suitors lined up to take the hand of Penelope.

One Shot Consulting embodies this story, because like Odysseus, it is the best and only option when it comes to finding proper candidates for your business.
