Information Design

As disruptive technologies push the boundaries it is vital to cultivate an accurate, visual access to relevant knowledge. Graphic design serves as the framework through which complex subject matters can be translated into accessible narratives. I do not regard it as solely the process of putting content into media, but as an integral part of public life.

As an attentive intermediary, I pursue a critical approach and engage with current affairs and social issues as well as historic events. In my work I encompasses analogue as well as digital formats to design information, tell stories and shape situations.
