About me
I´m an illustrator living in Berlin and working for clients like Apple, Adobe, Wired, YouTube, FT. My roots are in publishing and print media, but I enjoy taking part in advertising and animation projects.
  • Khruangbin Poster
    Khruangbin PosterI was commissioned by Khruangbin to design a poster for their concert at Newport Jazz Festival 2021. The view over the sea, with the sailboats and the iconic Pell Bridge in the background, is the frame where the members of the band are placed, like giant creatures towering above the bay. The poster as print was paired with a square version for the social media that I show here too.
  • NZZ Sunday Magazine / Best Hotels 2021
    NZZ Sunday Magazine / Best Hotels 2021I was commissioned to illustrate an special issue of NZZ Sunday Magazine containing the 2021 Hotel Guide. The creative challenge was to integrate seamlessly my illos in the photos, from the cover to several inner pages. This year's guide put an emphasis on the green, eco-friendly profile of the hotels selected. NZZ (Neue Zürcher Zeitung) is a Swiss newspaper, the Sunday edition contains the magazine as supplement.
