Icarus is a self directed type project of 2018 and 2019. I developed the letter shapes based on parabola curves, creating a flowing motion of the font. The graphic style was inspired by the ancient greek legend of Icarus and Daedalus. My typeface was published in the latest edition of TYPODARIUM specializing on new typefaces by Verlag Hermann Schmidt Publishers. Furthermore, Icarus is part of NEW AESTHETIC, a collaborative book project that focusses on the emotional power and influence and typefaces hold.

In times of overstimulation, constant accessibility and endless possibilities, it quickly happens that one loses focus. We are constantly comparing ourselves to others, trying to exceed expectations, wanting to be faster, better, more efficient. Combining the aspired individualism with the expectations of society triggers many overburdened demands, both hopes and fears with regard to the future are troubling people. We are sinking into material abundance: But why do we lose ourselves in that vast sea of ​​content, consumption and options?
XMALIST searches for signs, causes and solutions to this phenomenon. I am opening up perspectives, create awareness and give impulses, feel the yearning for a self-determined life. My magazine is an attempt to reflect, filter and show how people find their focus. XMALIST is an impulse, an inspiration and addresses the shift away from the addiction for more - to the appreciation of less.

This magazine project is my senior thesis at Münster School of Design. My work was featured by Design Made in Germany

For more than 12 years msd students have been working on 23 issues of rhizom in total. It‘s published semi-annually. Supported by Prof. Rüdiger Quass von Deyen, Prof. Dr. Ralf Beuker, Dipl. Des. Paul Biciste and Author Hendrik Otremba a group of 14 students, including me, worked on this magazine project. I was fortunate to present our RHIZOM 23 at EDCH— Editorial Changing convention march of 2017 in Munich, Germany. Some copies were furthermore featured by stackmagazines.
The 23rd issue deals with the topic of humans seen from the perspective of a designer. Our main topics are based on Susan M. Weinschenk PHD’s book „100 things every designer needs to know about people“. The impressions gained through this book inspired us to interpret the topic of humans and design in an interview issue. We had the honor to be featured on the Blog Design Made in Germany.

Parcours is a semiannual exhibit at Münster School of Design which is organized and designed by students only. The grad show takes place at the MSD building over a time period of 3 days. In the summer of last year, a team of 14 students, including me, worked on the organization and concept of Parcours 2017. Among the single elements of the exhibit were a catalogue, posters, silkscreened shirts and bags, invitation cards and a website. Not only the concept and navigation were part of designing the experience but also promoting the event and managing finances, such as the aquise of sponsors and partners. We had the honor to have Design made in Germany feature us.
