My interests were always broader than one specific field or profession. I am passionate about the entire spectrum of visual storytelling, whether static or non-static.

Let’s meet

In 2008, Russia invaded Georgia and a short, brutal war followed. 10 years later, 20% of this tiny, independent country is still occupied. Georgians are banned from entering parts of their own country.

But hardly anyone outside of Georgia is aware of this. While spreading the word is the only hope, how can Georgians, from a country 250 times smaller than Russia, speak up to the the world?


Giovanni Morra, a proudly Georgian accessories brand, standing for self-expression, decided to take the message global in a way that was guaranteed to cross borders: a passport cover, that is 20% occupied.

Product Idea - GIOVANNI MORRA team
Art Director/ Designer - Giorgi Popiashvili
Art Director - Juarez Rodrigues
Copywriter - Vicky Jacob-Ebbinghaus

Idea was to reproduce Dali’s painting - “Dream Caused by the Flight of a Bee Around a Pomegranate a Second Before Awakening”.

I started with the iconic elephant but stumbled upon some complications when it came to tigers and naked woman…

Thanks to "Kikala Studio" for a great help in photo shootings.
While having my internship at BBDO Proximity Berlin I came up with a stunt idea for Smart ForTwo,
the agency executed the advertising event after I left the agency to continue my studying.
