About me

I love to play around with visual identity, creative problem solving and intuitive strategic solutions. I take great joy from exploring new ways of working and thinking and I am always on a hunt for the great and unknown.

Creative Director

Ding Magazine

Jul 2013
  • London, United Kingdom
  • Freelance
  • I started D!NG to promote young multidisciplinary artists who are at the beginning of their artistic ambition. But D!NG grew into much more than an online magazine. Now it is also a platform for young artists to express themselves and to get them in contact with other artists, their audience and interested parties. As such next to publishing young upcoming artists D!NG also organizes exhibitions and art events to give these artists the chance to voice and exhibit their own thing. Hence D!NG encourages cultural entrepreneurship and stimulates the creative process of young people.
