I'm Dora Hunor, a challenge-seeker and graphic designer, and this is my online resumé.
For almost 1,5 years I was working for Schlegel und Partner GmbH, a management consulting company. as a trainee. I learned a lot about project management and had my first bigger project where I was also responsible for the design of a company handbook.
After a big jump, I started to work as a freelance graphic designer. Among the projects,, I designed logos, e-book covers, a newsletter template, a social media avatar for an online casino, and more. (see my portfolio). When I was working, time was running. Sometimes I forgot (and still do) to eat.
I wanted to try myself in a corporate environment, and I’m lucky to say that I can now work for Five1, an SAP-Partner consulting company. On my first day, I got to design the sides of the new company table football. Since I have started working there, I redesigned the company’s power point template, the template for company brochures, I created illustrations. The ongoing projects at the moment include a wall calendar, a company wallpaper, and the preparation of the images of an exhibit stand.
I wanted to go to a good university and learn something interesting, or at least, not boring. That’s why I applied to Corvinus University Budapest and did a bachelor and than, a master there. I liked learning about social policy and I wrote my thesis on career change. By the time I got my master’s degree, I had already been planning that career change myself as well, and had already moved to Germany. I finished my last year at the university from here while I was working for Schlegel und Partner in Weinheim.
In parallel with my MA in Social Policy, I did a degree in interpreting and translating (English-Hungarian) to increase my career chances. It resulted to be very useful, I still need to use English a lot when I work, though German is now the first language that I communicate in most of the time.
After realizing that my desire to create something that I can actually see, proved to be really strong, I changed careers and went to Alfatraining, Mannheim to learn about graphic design. I enjoyed it a lot, and as a result, I don’t hate Mondays anymore, I actually like them.

I strongly believe that work is not just something that helps us pay our bills, but something that can give meaning to our lives, and makes us enjoy it.
I love creating, whether it’s a new illustration, an older design that needs fresh ideas, or just a few new chords when playing the guitar for my new song. I like the different stages of creating: getting inspiration, following ideas, feeling stuck for hours, but then finding something new and trying it out, getting feedback, and then just enjoying the result. And a few hours later, making alterations again. And again. And again, until everyone is satisfied with the result.
I’ve spent a lot of time to get to know what kind of person I am, and what work I could do that I enjoy but could also help other people with.
Working on the computer is something I like a lot, but I also need to be in contact with others. Graphic design gives me that. I like thinking through processes, organizing, and implementing my ideas. I am empathic and kind with others and also like communicating with people that way as well.
I like working with people who do what they promise on time, because that's what I do, too. Working on my own gives me the feeling of freedom which I love, but there's nothing better than having a successful project that you had worked on with other people together.
