Gyros Heroes - Ein griechischer Lieferservice zweier Brüder aus Hamburg

Ioannis Telioridis

Der Corona-Virus hat unser aller Leben weitgehend verändert. Restaurants und Bars bleiben vorerst geschlossen und die einzige Möglichkeit, sich kulinarisch verwöhnen zu lassen, ist, sich Essen nach Hause zu bestellen. 
Ioannis Telioridis stammt aus einer Familie, die seit Jahrzehnten in der Gastronomie tätig ist. Aus einem Restaurant einen Lieferbetrieb zu entwickeln ist die logische Konsequenz der Situation, in der sich die Gesellschaft aktuell befindet. 
 Dieser Sprung stellt eine besondere Herausforderung dar, welche Ioannis Telioridis in seinem Projekt meistern möchte. Hierfür visualisiert er den Werdegang und die Zukunft des neuen Unternehmens.

Ioannis Telioridis

Where do you see yourself in 20 years?

That's difficult. I want to believe in the concept of having plans that are still so far ahead, although society and plans can change at any given time. I like to have some flexibilty in my life. Plans are always absolute. Situations change and in my opinion we need to rather adapt to the changes around us instead of sticking to our plan. Opportunities come and oportunities go. It is up to us to decide whether we want to pursue them or not.

What is a good design for you?

Good design should be straight to the point.

What was the most challenging experience during your studies?

That has to be theoretical work. I have never been good at reading books and writing papers for hours on end. It always feels exhausting, although I get why it is such an important part of learning how to design.

Who or what inspires you?

Music and my curiosity for everything imaginable.

How do you approach a new project?

Every project starts with a problem, and the goal is to solve the problem with the methods and tools we have as a designer. I basically look at it like a puzzle. Where do I need to put in certain parts to create the result that is needed?

What advice would you give to students who just started studying in your programme?

Never do anything at the last minute. Trust me, you will regret it.

Have you changed during your studies? How?

Learning to plan projects according to your deadline was key for me.

Why did you choose to study in your programme?

I started getting into design when I was 14 years old. I downloaded the test version of Adobe Photoshop and started editing pictures, creating logos for fun. Of course I didn't have any experience back then, but I still immediately fell in love with it. Since then I cannot imagine myself in another professional environment.

What are you not going to miss in your studies?

Definitely writing essays and papers.

How are you going to celebrate your graduation?

Just with a cold beer and close friends and family around me.

Say hi!
