About me

Graphic Designer and Art & Design Director, with a focus on Visual Communication, Conceptual Design, and Creative Consultation. — I am a multi-disciplinary senior visual communication designer & art director whose success of brand-building lies in a holistic approach to print, digital, spatial and experience design. My international biography spans projects through publishing, advertising, fashion, and retail. Each touchpoint in any channel is underpinned with a conviction that an emotional response is symptomatic of beautiful craft and there-in lies a process of commitment to communicate the very best visual story for any brand. more snippets on insta: @katjaalissamueller
