Hi, my name is Cristian Campan, however I’m not a big fan of formalities, that’s why I prefer Chris. I’m located in lovely Copenhagen, Denmark. I am from Suceava, Romania a small city in the north-east, an area pretty much known for it’s monasteries and austro-hungarian heritage. I had my bachelor degree at Romanian-American University in Bucharest and in 2010 I moved to Denmark for my masters at Aarhus University, which I graduated in 2013.
I always had a keen eye towards design, however I can say without no doubt that in 2010 the year when i moved to Denmark my knowledge about design and Scandinavian design was limited to the IKEA catalog of 2009. The perks of living in Denmark and Scandinavia is that you are acquainted with Danish and Scandinavian design or just great design on a daily basis.
My studies were related within the fields of management and marketing, however I’m passionate about web design. communication, technology and design, thus finding something that could combine all of this was hard. That’s why I decided to spend my time creating goldproportion.com a website which incorporates my interests.
