a firm believer that great design has to touch people and not ignore them. It should solve problems and make people’s lives better.
Designing comes to me naturally: I love creating things with my hands, in my mind or on a screen. I’m inspired by the things I see every day. It can be a stick from the woods, the surface or texture of materials in my hands or simply the light on a crisp clear morning. It’s my imagination that makes dreams come true.
I am true to myself and others.
I am unbiased with everything I approach and feel the liveliness in my being and doing.
I trust my gut – my intuition is the root of all things I create.
I love what I do – it’s as simple as that.
Inspired by nature I strive to reduce my work to the essential to achieve clarity.
Imagination is my key to creativity.
I use my empathy to get to the core of a brand or person to create designs that are authentic and outstanding.

whatever is necessary to help companies or people to find their individual visual expression. My designs are a visual manifestation of the core of a brand, product or person. They are both – distinct and authentic.
I work on my own or as part of a team, always combining experience and know-how in all design disciplines. Thanks to my extensive network I am able to compile a team of interdisciplinary specialists to realize multi-facetted projects.
I develop cutting-edge design, consult corporations in matters of visual brand management and create visual concepts for integrated communication projects across all platforms.
Before starting to design I do a deep dive into the brand, product or person. Through this personal exchange and intensive collaboration I gather as many insights as possible and analysize the potentials. I strongly believe in teamwork and put my focus on the individual.
Using my creative power I always try to transform the inner truth of my client into an unique visual appearance.
For an initial design draft I prefer taking small steps and making quick drafts. I work on a screen as well as with any material I can get my hands on. I really like the creative tension between analog and digital aesthetics and often I'm just creating for joy.
Currently I'm using tools such as: Adobe Creative Suite (PS, AI, ID), Microsoft Office, Sketch, InVision, Confluence, Basecamp.
