Jenni OTTILIE Keppler

Social & Environmental Interaction Catalyst

From experience I know, that I love working with people, who engage me in the development of their ideas and projects. I'm always looking for initiatives that are "meaningful" – i.e. sustainable, open source, environmental, social or just beautiful. If an idea inspires me, I will put all my energy into making it happen.

Whenever possible I try to engage my partners in live-designing sessions aka "rapid-prototyping", which delight my hands and soul as much as bringing characters and ideas to life in a short animation.

My creative heart especially glows, when blotting with ink and watercolor designing organic shapes, creatures and structures, that I deliberately like to share in a curated exhibition. Some nights are spent navigating on the paths of the "Vectorian Sea" to (sur)render in the land of "Pixel and Punze" in the early morning, where they fly out as poster designs, flyers, logos or infographics.

MISSION (as of 01.2014):

CREATING A MORE SUSTAINABLE FUTURE THROUGH COMMUNITY.

Always following the Lakota Words:

MITAKUYE OYASIN. – ALL ARE RELATED.
