DIE ZEIT Parteienlandschaft Poster

 

DIE ZEIT contracted me in 2005 to develop a large-scale poster on the development of the political parties in Germany since 1848 for their science magazine, ZEIT WISSEN.

The respective parties are visualized by streams and rivers, while historic landmarks such as the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989 and key figures like Otto von Bismarck are illustrated by symbols, vignettes and statues.

In 2016, I created an updated version that's for sale through this web site. >more

Illustrations for Welt am Sonntag




 

Die Welt, one of Germany's large daily newspapers from Axel Springer publishers, was actually one of my very first regular clients back in the early nineties when it all started. Over a period of five or six years, I used to supply weekly artwork for their Saturday section on educational topics.

As of late, I am again a regular for Welt am Sonntag, the terrific Sunday edition. >more

Ritzenhoff Coffee Mug
I have created my first kitchenware design for Ritzenhoff, a coffee mug in the My Darling series. My design shows the faces of a man and a woman, intertwined in a pretty complex setup using bright colors.

Ritzenhoff is a leading producer of tableware and glassware in Germany. >more

Illustrations for Süddeutsche Zeitung



 

I have provided many illustrations for the Süddeutsche Zeitung from very early on in my career. As of late, artwork I create for this daily paper comes in large size and full color, as opposed to black and white years ago. I am showcasing some of my more work here.

The Süddeutsche Zeitung, published in Munich, is the largest German national subscription daily newspaper. >more

Packing Designs for Tin Boxes
I have created a great variety of packaging designs for empty tin boxes for Huber Decorative in 2010.

The designs come in different shapes and sizes – for coffee, tea, sugar, flour, rice, pasta, cookies, bread, cereal, pet food, toys, gifts and bottles.

Founded in 1871, Huber Packaging is Germany’s largest manufacturer of tin boxes. The company produces beverage-sized cans, food packaging, jewelry boxes and decorative gift packages. >more

DIE ZEIT Psychotherapy Infographic



 

I have created this full-page illustrated infographic for DIE ZEIT, Germany's largest weekly newspaper.

The page provides an outline of the four main fields in psychotherapy which have evolved over the years – from Sigmund Freud's psychoanalysis and Wilhelm Reich's humanistic psychology up to the streams of systemic psychology and behavioral psychology.

My artwork takes a whimsical approach, and incorporates a large number of fun illustrations. >more

Jacket Design for Bestselling
Nonfiction Book

 
I have created the jacket design for Richard David Precht's bestselling book, Wer bin ich - und wenn ja, wie viele? ("Who am I - and if so, how many?").

Published by Goldmann Verlag (Random House), the book has skyrocketed to over 1.5 mill. sold copies, which makes it a national bestselling nonfiction title not only in Germany, but in all of Europe.

The author has meanwhile published another book called Love, which I have also designed, and which has sold 200,000 copies in the first four weeks of its release.

Grand Prize, Oktoberfest
Poster Design Competition

 
I have won the grand prize in the 2008 offical Oktoberfest poster design competition. The competition has been organized by the city of Munich to celebrate the largest beer festival worldwide, the famous Oktoberfest. My pop art design was shown on posters, in brochures, and on memorabilia ranging from beer bugs to glasses, t-shirts and caps. >more | >Media Coverage | >Photos from the Venue in Munich | >Oktoberfest Kitchenware | >Handelsblatt Newspaper "Face of the Week"

DER SPIEGEL Cover Art

 
DER SPIEGEL, Germany's largest and most influential weekly news magazine, contracted a cover illustration on the topic of East-German disintegration in 2004 and included the process of creating the art in a TV documentary accompanying the art exhibition, "The Art of DER SPIEGEL." >more

Set Prop Illustration
for CBS TV Show, NUMB3RS

 
US broadcasting network CBS has contracted a wall clock design of mine to use as a set prop for their TV show, NUMB3RS. The illustration shows a woman hanging the wash. The sheets have mathematical symbols printed on them.

NUMB3RS is a crime show from CBS. Rob Morrow stars as FBI agent Don Eppes, who recruits his mathematical genius brother, Charlie (David Krumholtz), to help the Bureau solve a wide range of challenging crimes in Los Angeles. From two very different perspectives, the brothers take on the most confounding criminal cases. >more

LEGAmedia, Self-published
Legal Online Magazine

 
After years of experience with building web sites for law firms and mingling with legal publishers, it seemed only logical to start my own online legal magazine. Targeting lawyers and entrepreneurs, LEGAmedia offered in-depth features on topics from law, business and politics.

Within five years, LEGAmedia had grown into one of the largest suppliers of legal resources worldwide and a household name in Germany. Authors included major international law firms and outstanding experts like former New York city mayor, Ed Koch. >more
