Let's create together!
I'm a creative soul looking for work.
Engage me in your project – meaningful, i.e. sustainable, open source, environmental, social or just beautiful, and I will be a great attribution in realizing it together with you. If an idea inspires me I will put all my energy into making it happen. I love to work with people who let me be part of the progress of an idea, as I am not only a graphic machine, but more so a thinking human.
Through the working on great projects together with amazing people, I was able to practice my design skills in graphic print- and web design, illustration, animation and short videos. I was also able to practice my social skills as someone who works in a team, executes given tasks or organizes and coordinates complex events.
In the past, I've worked for Arkadia & Co Design and smaller clients. With the force of others, I founded TAAK! Tauschakademie Halle, volunteered at OUI Share Fest Paris, brought to life the little home cinema CineMaggio and founded BURGgrün (university-related environmental group). Recently I've been involved in design and motion work supporting the OPENiT Festival and in the founding of CuriosiTea, an online platform that is still in the making.
If you have a project at hand and you are looking for an open creative to work WITH, please, get in touch!
And in case you're around, stop by for a cup of tea!
