As an environmental artivist, I’m increasingly focused on working with sustainable product brands that respect the environment. If your brand shares the same values of protecting our environment, please feel free to contact me. I would love to work with you!
I studied communication & illustration design at university in Hamburg, Germany
and graduated 2006 with a german diplom (1.0 - best possible grade)
HAW Hamburg, University of Applied Sciences, department Design. Campus Armgartstraße/ Finkenau.
As a designer, I have worked as a senior art director, managing my own team and have a vast amount of creative experience. More specifically, my work has included the implementation of client projects, as well as the conception, visualisation and execution of conceptual projects, the creation of general client presentation and the overall management of individual clients.
With a passion for design, I greatly enjoy working in a team with other designers who share this passion, as well as being comfortable working on my own.

I have 14 years of international experience as a senior art director, having worked in London, Hamburg and Paris specialising in high-end products, luxury products and food products as well as general consumer good products. I have worked with agencies representing many leading brands, including L’Oréal, Coty, Interparfum, Henkel, Puig, Lindt etc.
I designed the Logo for this movement: stop the problem at the source. This program drives behavior change and crates scalable impact to reduce plastic and waste.
I designed the Logo for CCell (slightly altered after my initial design, waves in the ll were added). I also came up with the tag line: SEA POWERED PROTECTION
I designed the Logo for The Daily Whale as well as the cooperate identity and the social media posting grid. Together with Neil Gunn we post beautiful wildlife images from all over the world on instagram.
I created this Logo for the Schillerkieznachbarn, as they want to use it to raise awareness of plastic pollution. The whale is a sign I use to communicate zero waste behavior... and it's also part of my artivist collection.
