Serban was educated as an architect and town planner in Romania, specializing in Design Studies. He relies heavily on this educational background in his current roles, but like many founders of microstock agencies he comes from a background in web design. He remains owner and managing director of Romanian based web design firm, Archi-Web, who have expanded their base of high profile clients well beyond eastern Europe.
In a familiar story, Dreamstime arose in 2000 as an in-house database for Archi-web to fulfill a need to share photos among their designers. Serban opened Dreamstime to the public in 2004, adopting the inclusive microstock model.
