Graphic Designer

I have worked for several companies on different projects mainly on several print materials, digital billboards, motion graphics and social media posts. The biggest project was in 2017 when I redesigned the corporate design for the student and alumni club 'Studium und Praxis e.V.' which increased brand recognition for the club and their largest event, the WiMa-congress. Ever since I provide the club every year with new visuals such as brochures, animated videos, social media posts, flyers, posters, post cards, etc.
