My life started when I decided to drop out of school. It just wasn’t my thing and I had the urge to finally work on something practical. I was always doing many things at the same time. Graphic design or taking pics simply wasn't enough. I wanted to make things happen - to move - so motion design became my next project.
In 2014 I started as an interdisciplinary designer for FOON agency based in Graz. What I liked most about my job were the stories behind the brands. I wanted to play an important role in developing brands, not necessarily in building brands from scratch. In other words, I wanted to be the one who pushes brands to the next level. In Super Mario terms: “I'm not the mushroom that makes you grow bigger, I'm the fire flower which lets you shoot freaking balls of fire.” I hope you get the idea.
While working at FOON I also did some jobs as a self-employed photographer and completed a training to become a media designer. To give all of my side-projects a common home, some friends and I started an art-society called “das Uhrwerk” which included a studio of our own.
Things worked out pretty well but in 2019 I knew something had to change. I moved to Vienna and started working at Bacon & Bold as a digital creative focusing on motion design and illustrations. A short time ago (2020) I finished a small project for Warner Music UK to celebrate diversity.
So you can see I’m always up for creative projects besides my job.
So have a bite and taste some of the things I already did. Would you like some appetizing illustrations, handsome commissions, distinct photographs or vivid paintings? Have a look at them and enjoy.
