I’m a multidisciplinary designer & art director based in Berlin, mainly working on corporate culture, visual systems, print and digital design with a strong focus on typography. The brands I have worked with range from early-stage startups to established companies and corporate companies. My work follows the principles of simplicity and clarity to filter out distraction to add value through contemporary design.

In case of large projects I can fall back on a network of programmers, photographers, copywriters, illustrators, stylists and additional graphic designers, of course, to cope with the tasks.

I have a Master of Arts degree. I studied communication design at the Niederrhein University of Applied Sciences, the Bergen Academy of Art and Design and at the University of Applied Sciences Mainz.

I am also a founding member of WeAreFour™, an office partnership focussing on visual communication in Berlin.

Drop me a line to say «Hi».
