I'm a detail oriented, pixel-pushing graphic designer.
I love designing. I love the process, the challenges and the rewards. My skill set reflects a competence in graphic design, motion graphics, ux/ui, branding and identities. A user-centered mindset and sensitivity for design turned out to be the perfect fit when starting my career, creating visually appealing designs with subtle details to enhance functionality and structure. Communicating the conceptual approach and reasoning behind a design, runs systematically throughout my design process. To achieve the goal of making the best design, I trust in teamwork, intuition and the latest technology.
