More about me

About me

Having spent over 15 years in and with ad agencies as a designer, as an art-director and as a digital marketing manager, it is now about time to start up my own business to offer the gained experience and creativity to my own customers.

Skills

The last years I focused on developing digital strategies, designing websites and creating social media experiences. I still think that digital is very important, but I am convinced that we shouldn't look at it as a separate channel. Online and offline media have become dependent on another, so it is essential to open the view crossmedial and think global. The task should be to create the best possible content and design for strategically chosen platform combinations.

  • Corporate Design 100%
  • Mobile & Web Design 100%
  • UX Design 70%
  • Photography 70%
  • Project Management 100%
  • Social Media 90%

Services

Actually I would say, that I can help you with anything, which needs a new or optimised design :-) But to give you a rough idea, here is a list of my main creative services.

Social Media

Strategic planning, community management and developing creative editorial content.

User Experience

Thinking and testing the concept through and implementing the results into the design.

Photography

I can do small shootings, for bigger ones, I work together with a professional photographer.

Mobile & Webdesign

I think that responsive design is the key for the rising amount of different devices and its display sizes.

Identity & Branding

One of my passions as I think that a good corporate design is essential for a professional perception.

Blogs and Vlogs

Working together with bloggers/video bloggers. If you have a young target group you should consider it's potential.

Clients

These were my main clients in the time I have worked as an art-director for (Xenion) isobar and before.

Arla Bahlsen, PiCK UP, Brandt Ferrero Kellogg's Lässig Nintendo Nordzucker, SweetFamily Philips

The design process

For developing a design and it's final output it is helpful to follow these process steps. To give you an idea, what they look like, I show it to you using the example of a website project

There are three responses to a piece of design – yes, no, and WOW! Wow is the one to aim for.
