I’m the guy responsible for the article headers you see on Source Gaming or Twitter/Facebook. Sometimes, I’ll also do some additional graphics for SG like the banner or graphics for our videos. Because of that, you won’t hear much about me. But I hope, you’ll like the designs I make. What else can I say about me? Ah yeah, I’m a VERY big Kirby-Fan, which you could maybe tell from my profile picture and maybe from my name. And as a design-guy, I’m also fascinated about animation. That's it I guess.
