what do designers do?

  • Learning. As designer I learn fantastic new things every day.

  • Branding and Identity
    Branding and corporate Identity include the sum of all visual representations of a business. The image (corporate design), the verbal expressions, behavior, and manner among both the internal and external public orientate around the business’s values.
    Editorial Design
    Editorial design is the conception and design of journals, newspapers, magazines, brochures, and books and is directly connected with the redactional work.
  • motivation for designing

    It’s a hackneyed phrase, but it’s the truth: turn my hobby into a profession!

  • learned to design

    Besides good education the following things are important: listening, thinking, dreaming, looking, failing, loving, acting, staying curious. Before my studies at the University of Applied Sciences Dortmund I completed a training as “Gestaltungstechnische Assistentin”. During my studies I did a practical term in the Netherlands. Through cooperation with other good designers I learn something new every day.
