I am a freelance art director available for hire
Since 2001 I have been working independently to provide branding and identity design, webdesign and creative marketing ideas to business owners, organizations and agencies across Germany and beyond. Currently I live and work in Istanbul and Berlin.
I was born in 1979 in Essen, Germany. At the age of 14 I started creating my first digital artworks, influenced by CD covers, artworks, magazines and other impressions around me. Almost instantly, it turned into a real passion.
Adaptability is one of my major strengths. I am able to jump easily from being a designer, to a concept developer, to a provider of ideas, to a decision maker. This adaptability can also be seen in my design work where I am able to handle any task, wether it is corporate design, branding, print or web and multimedia.
