Good design is clear, concise and tangible. Through my design, your content becomes visible, accessible and comprehensible. Thanks to the finely tuned tonality, they reach the viewer not only cognitively, but also emotionally. And thus anchor themselves in the long term and sustainably. Tell me about your project.

Christmas cards

Christmas is the time of the year, when you think on your beloved ones, when you pause for a moment to say “thank you”. Still one of the nicest ways to tell is by a handwritten postcard, a little personal surprise in the moment of opening the postbox in the everyday rush – and even more, if it’s not a cheesy golden-stars-and-tree ensemble but a simple black-and-white design that manages to put a smile on the face!

Gewandhaus Orchester

The Gewandhaus Orchester is one of the biggest and oldest symphonic orchestras in the world. If you visit Leipzig you won’t miss it – because of its brutal architecture. The distinctive forms were the starting point for the design and are now visible in their reduced abstraction in every medium. Strong colours fill them with life – as the music fills the building with colourful sounds.

European Shooting Stars 2015

The „European Shooting Stars“ are the ten best up-and-coming actors from Europe, chosen by a jury of experts, nominated by the member organizations of European Film Promotion. The magazine adopts the glamourous look of the award ceremony by black-and-white photographs and elegant typography. It catches attention by the strong red colour. The rough paper and the diverse layout reflect the actors’ unadapted strong characters.

MS Europa 2

For the christening of “MS Europa 2” we created a three-step invitation set. Life on board of the luxury cruise liner is in all elements transferred into a lively vaudeville atmosphere with colorful plants, animals and characters. To surprise and impress the guests we developed for the third step something really special: a little theater in a box, which can be easily set in motion by a little metal crank.
