→ I help you attract attention for your social, cultural or scientific subjects - and communicate them in a charming and approachable way. With vibrant and catchy illustrations that execute thoughtful narrative concepts. It's a lot of work to create lightness. But it's worth it: positive vibes, humour and understandable explanations make you reach people on an emotional level.
I have a lot of knowledge in different areas, which help me in doing so:
ILLUSTRATION & CONCEPT
I am interested in illustration not only on the visual, but also on the narrative level. Even when I was four years old, whenever I drew a picture, I made my mother write down the story that I had made up for it. Today I can draw much better (M.A. in illustration) - and I still think about image and content always as connected.
E.g. for this combination I was awarded with a German Design Award.
THE BIG PICTURE
I like the illustration in itself, but I like the big picture even more. Therefore I engage with Strategic Design and marketing - plus I also study Cultural Management (M.BA. certificate) with a focus on "Audience development and Branding" at the Professional School of Leuphana University and the Goethe Institute.
I am digitally experienced. I know the common graphic and video editing software off pat. I engage myself in stuff like Social Media, Wordpress or Mailchimp, I can merge Microsoft Office with InDesign. I can implement survey tools into newsletters or chose the right video codec. I love to learn new stuff.
CRAFT & TECHNOLOGY
I am a skilled bookbinder. Through my apprenticeship as a hand bookbinder and my work as an industrial bookbinder in different offset printing houses I have a lot of knowledge and experience in anything that has to do with print.
As a result, I gladly provide consulting or supervising the production part of your commission if necessary.
I know a lot, but I don't know everything. Therefore I have a network of professional partners, for example from programming, app developing, marketing, journalism or psychology.
