About me


I'm a freelance art director, based in Hamburg and Lisbon. I've been working in digital and print communication since 2001, coming up with ideas, developing concepts, and creating beautiful designs for brands large and small. Automotive, lifestyle and fashion projects are my speciality. I'm particularly interested in the way that user interface design interacts with the user experience, and the relationship between corporate design and brand experience. I believe good design demands creativity. And that there's always room for beauty.


I obtained my Master of Arts at the Hamburg University of Fine Art (Hochschule für Bildende Künste), where I majored in photography and video, and completed post-graduate studies in visual communication in Los Angeles. Back in Germany, I joined Interone Worldwide as art director, leading design teams, co-ordinating complex projects and carrying out photo shoots. I've been freelance since 2007.


Got a new project that needs art direction? Developing a new visual strategy for your brand? Want a UX structure for your site or app that will stand out from the crowd? Or you do simply have some cool ideas for collaboration? Then feel free to reach out to me. You're in the right place.
