About me
I an a fully integrated German Senior Graphic Designer & Illustrator with long term work experience in the creative industry, both print & digital. In the Design Department of VCCP/ Girl&Bear where I spend the last decade at, I had the opportunity to work for a wide range of clients across a variety of design challenges; From classical Advertising, over Conceptual Design, creating Brand Identities, Packaging, Editorial Design all the way to Digital/Social and Illustration projects, which turned into my speciality within our agency. Besides O2, Cadbury, easyJet, Canon, TfL, White Claw and Müller, just to name a few, I also enjoyed working on small projects and with charities like HIPZ and Just a Drop. I was involved in numerous award winning campaigns and won an Award in a D&AD design competition. As a senior member of the team I was also tasked with the oversight and management of others designers. When I am not designing stuff you will find me somewhere climbing, absolutely love it, can talk about it for hours.

  • 'Does It Sit Comfortably'
    'Does It Sit Comfortably'One of the very fun projects I was working on a few years back wit Laura Muse. I created a range of typography designs based on her idea 'Does It Sit Comfortably' ahead of Women's Day which calls out gendered phrases with embroidered cushions.
