I always strove for an artistic career, so I took an a-level in fashion design, but found my great love during it: Photoshop. I was a junkie and quickly discovered the entire Adobe family. I taught myself functionalities and the use of these programs and finally had a clear goal in mind: I'm becoming designer!

I packed my stuff (it all fitted in a Volkswagen) and moved to Hamburg, right into the cult district St. Pauli. I studied »Communications Design and New Media" at the Design Factory International, did my degree with honors and started working as a freelancer after that.
One day I stumbled into a private museum and became friends with the owner. I revamped the entire corporate design and when the museum had to move, I was offered the position of curator. Being a collector of the weird and bizarre I instantly took the job.

After the owner's death, I am responsible for the entire collection now. With the help of an association I now open the museum to the public, give guided tours, sell and buy cusiosities, but still remain a freelance designer taking commissions.

    John F. Kennedys speech »Ich bin in Berliner«, held on June 26, 1963 in West Berlin is iconic. In this book it is illustrated, to emphasize its valuable phrases and to show how truly remarkable it is.
    A stylized Berlin Wall runs through the entire book and is crossed and broken apart to focus on JFK's words which end in the world-famous phrase »Ich bin in Berliner« (I am a Berliner).

    When »Tron:Legacy«, the sequel to the 80ies cult classic »TRON« hit the theaters, it was an eye-catching revelation. Futuristic vehicles within a life-threatening game from programs
    against humans in a one of a kind digital landscape and the overall style just screamed to be turned into an icon set for a communication device.

    Redesign of the scandalous poem book »Messer« by Rammstein singer Till Lindemann. The poems were seperated in three themes: »Glaube«, »Liebe« and »Tod« (Faith, Love and Death) and then illustrated in a staged typography style.
    The books are boxed in a knife block and equipped with a truly unsettling cover a wild and relentless design on the inside, one that fits the content, something the original failed at.

    In a world were looks value more than character, where the faces in magazines influence people more than a speech in tv, it was time to show how shallow this world is. Photoshop is a powerful tool that can change
    peoples appearance drastically. Models in ads are altered inhumanly so why not turn this tool into a skin care line to make you one of those models?

    When I was approached my swiss photographer extraordinaire to design a logo for him, I was thrilled. His photos are exceptionally amazing, brutal, honest and tell a mesmerizing story.
    A clean and stylized fusion of his initials fits his sharp style and clean composition.

    How do you make a car commercial without showing the actual car? That was the task for this project. You can hear Romeo and Juliet talking in love, you think they are in love with each other...
    ... but in the end they realize they are talking about the new Alfa Romeo 8C Spider.

    The world is lacking human values. Where are discipline, love, respect and trust? This project tries to bring these values back into the lives of everybody, by turning them into products that can be used.
    Every product forces the owner to bring these values back into their daily day lives, like the clock that makes you always be on time, or the mirror that makes you honest.
