I make complex things appear comprehensible – which means: designers have to learn every day.

motivation for designing
The best motivation and goal I can imagine is that moment when your creative work actually helped the client. My goal is to learn from my clients, understand what they are all up to, and help them to improve and express their identity, ideas or messages.
learned to design
A lot of learning-by-doing, and the discussions between co-workers and clients. I studied communication design and did some internships, of course.
year since working as
age of first design career thought
working at night per month
writing to-do-lists, brief photographers etc.
drink coffee, read magazines and blogs, clean up my desk (at least once a day)
Read the briefing. Try to understand. Read the briefing again. Drink a coffee. Read the briefing again. Do some moods, and try to think further than needed.
There is no special influence on my work. It all depends on the project and the task.
I guess like almost every designers’ workspace: desk, lamp, mac.
Always willing to learn, interested in the client, and task-oriented.
Always willing to learn, interested in the designers thoughts and ideas, and task-oriented.
relationship with client
Mostly very good, trustful, and somehow like a friendship. Mostly, not always.
getting along with salary
I cope well.
I like when the clients have respect for what I do, and make their contribution to the project. I don’t like when they treat me like a servant, and just wait for me to solve their problems.
