My work ranges from illustration and lettering to book design, from web and interface design to creative and editorial writing, e. g. for Berlin’s TYPO conference or the edenspiekermann blog.

I’ve worked with great people on great projects, such as: DIE ZEIT & ZEIT Online, Ringier, frieze, Wirecard, AZ Medien, jetzt.de / Süddeutsche Zeitung, Yaez Verlag, Red Bull, BMW, TLGG, Dieter von Holtzbrinck Stiftung, and more.

If you have an interesting idea to share or collaborate on, I’d be happy to hear from you. I enjoy team work, enthusiasm, dance, literature, watching animals, cheesy music and meaningful conversation:
