In my study as a Media- & Communication-Designer not only classes like typography, photography, texting, web design, graphic design and so on were teached. I also got input in areas like advertising psychology, marketing, planing or publishing. Over all I got the complete knowledge to act like a one man army.
These are the things I like the most. For more services scroll down to the "Full Service List FAQ" section.
User Interface Design (UI)
UI design for me is creating the general look and feel (more static, different from IxD) of user interfaces for machines and software (computers, mobile devices …) with the focus on maximizing usability and the user experience.
User Experience Design (UX)
UX refers to a person’s emotions and attitudes about using a particular product, environment, system or service. In my case it is more analytical than designing something, when UI and IxD build the visual part.
Advertising is a visual (also audio) form of marketing communication. Starts with single banners and ending with complex campaigns that promote a company, person or brand.
Interaction Design (IxD)
Interaction design is the practice of designing the communication between user and digital products, environments, systems, and services. It is also useful when creating physical (non-digital) products, exploring how a user might interact with it. While interaction design has an interest in form, its main area of focus rests on behavior.
Brand Material is all about designing stuff (stationery, booth, brochures, flyer, sticker…) based on Corporate Design/Identity.
Corporate Brand is all about logo, name, colors, fonts and everything a brand need. It combines Corporate Design and Corporate Identity.

What's about Photoshop?
I use Affinity programs for my work. When it comes to UI design sketch is also a better choice. If you need Photoshop in your company no problem form me, too.
What can you say about your WordPress skills?
My whole portfolio is a WordPress site and my private projects are always WordPress sites. I am experienced in creating fast prototypes, create a brand website and stuff like that. For me, a combination of different visual composer has been reinforced. Based on the project, I chose another one to create as quickly as possible without compromising.
Can you handle sketch projects?
What means Advertising?
I can create your complete communication to clients in general. B2B and B2C. We can plan timelines, complex advertising campaigns or your next booth. Web and Print or both.

Yes. I’m also experienced in creating style guides or brand books to ensure the consistency in future projects also without myself.
Why UI/UX or rather web AND print design?
Because I worked a long time as a print designer before, there is a solid base. That means I can create your stuff without „One-way streets“. Colors on displays for example are completely different from printing them on paper.

I tried a lot of them. If you prefer something, let’s do it. High fidelity prototypes on WordPress base? Principle? inVision …

In this case, I am on top of „best guess“ and „best practice“. We can use the knowledge of existing things and make them better or matching.
We need you more than once. any possibility to contractually hold this for long time?
Yes! I am very happy about every regular customer.
We are an Advertising agency. Any experiences with confidentiality agreements?
Agency background. I only show what was allowed to me official. This is also a reason why my portfolio isn’t that extensive on my website.
I like your projects but have you experience in designing for XYZ?
