My name is Yiorgos Yiacos a.k.a. TwelveTimesTwo. I play with pictures, words, colours and forms. I do graphic design, illustration, art direction and font design.

I studied visual communication at the Kent Institute of Design (now known as the University for the Creative Arts) in the UK.

Co-founded the Poor Designers Studio and later the Comeback Studio, both in Athens, Greece.

I now spend time between Athens and Cyprus focusing on personal projects and on client work that I enjoy.

This is my personal portfolio where you will find commercial work but also personal projects and experiments.
