Yannick Lorenz

Freelance Graphic Designer

Newport Beach, CA, USA
My name is Yannick “Yaya” Lorenz and I am a Graphic Artist born and raised in Berlin, Germany. My creative passion has lead me to come to the United States where I not only got my degree but also worked as a Senior Graphic Consultant.

After a few years with the company, I grew confident enough to set out on my own path and begin the freelancing adventure.

Fortunately, I have been blessed to work with a very diverse group of clients which has forced me to accept big challenges and think outside the box.

Traveling and living in many places during my life has fueled my enthusiasm for a challenge and I am always looking for ways to broaden my horizon both personally and creatively.
