me - Martins Zelcs art director

Hi, my name is Martins Zelcs. I started my career as a graphic designer from where I switched to art direction and from where I moved to creative direction.

Ironically, I'm a writer in my heart. Here's my resume  and here are ten emojis that define me and what I stand for:

 

Trying my best to be an environmentalist and save this planet.                  I love cinematography, films and everything around it.

Vegetarian. Livestock is the environment's worst enemy.                           I stand for equality, no matter race, sex, nationality, religion, or social class.

I’m a proud supporter of the LGBTQ community.                                        I love eclairs, but I don’t discriminate, I eat all the desserts.

I stay active, from boxing to running to voguing. I do it all.                         I admit, I’m an eccentric, and I have a little obsession with fashion.

 I love watching music videos, from Melina Matsoukas to Hiro Murai.         I’m originally from Latvia, country of pagans who enjoy jumping over bonfires.
