Studio Jan Erlinghagen is a boutique graphic design practice run by independent Creative Director & Art Director Jan Erlinghagen. Focussing on corporate culture, visual systems, print and digital design Studio Jan Erlinghagen has worked with early-stage startups, established companies, corporate companies and globally operating agencies in Germany, Austria and Switzerland. My work follows the principles of simplicity and clarity to filter out distraction and to add value through contemporary design.

With an ever growing network of professional programmers, photographers, copywriters, illustrators, stylists no project can be too big not to be handled with care.

I graduated from the University of Applied Sciences Mainz with a Master of Arts degree. I graduated from the Niederrhein University of Applied Sciences with a Diploma in communication design. I also studied at the Bergen Academy of Art and Design in Norway and at the Saxion University in Enschede, The Netherlands.

My work has been published in Page Magazine, Turn Left, Turn Right 2 (Designerbooks), RSVP — Invitation design for special occasions (Gingko Press).

Indigo Award Gold Medal Winner for Concrete Plæne.
