I am a visual designer and writer with a master’s degree in psychology. I am based in Graz, Austria and sometimes in Berlin. 

I love telling stories, no matter if I am using literal words, or visual language. In design, I mostly work in the fields of Editorial Design and Corporate Design, but I am always up for a good, unexpected challenge. I have worked for clients, such as SMARDT Chiller, ckb, The School of Life Berlin, SPÖ Graz, bfi Stmk, Jugend am Werk, Lebenshilfe.

Besides this blog, I have written or am currently writing for magazines, such as VICE, noisey and Futter (German).

Feel free to have a look at my design portfolio or download it below.

What I do

Corporate, Editorial and Package Design (and some Illustration).  

I love to assist my clients from start to finish (and beyond), but I am also happy to work with existing media. In preparation, I will want to find out what your product/service is all about, what your target audience is and what goals you wanna achieve with my help. Sometimes we may find a better solution to your problems than anticipated.

Psychologically driven Branding

Over time, I became more involved in the branding process of my clients’ products and services. With the help of my studies in communicational design as well as psychology, I focus on getting desired messages across. I use color, layout, typography and multi-media to emotionally infuse my minimalistic or abstract designs.


I am happy to help my clients with PR texts, wordings, social media posts and more. I am comfortable writing in German and English, depending on your needs. I cannot guarantee total accuracy as far as never making errors, but I do give my best to write as faultlessly as possible.

Feel free to contact me if you have questions or inquiries.
