How would you describe your work?


Where do you find inspiration?

Mostly the little connections between things, and I love a good pun.

Who are some of your favorite designers or artists?

Designers – Sascha Lobe, Eike König, Mirko Borsche

Artists – Keith Haring, Yayoi Kusama

^This question is so difficult…

Do you have a favorite among all the projects you’ve worked on?

No, it’s always the most recent one that I just finished

Is there a project that stands out to you as having been the biggest challenge of your career so far?

No, for some reason, there’s never an easy project… They all challenge me in different ways or maybe I just have bad luck.

What do you hope to accomplish in the future?

Start my own practice, but especially a type foundry.

What’s your best advice for designers today?

Work hard, play hard.
