Hi, I'm Anke.
My versatile educational path combining graphic design, computer science, marketing, corporate communications and journalism makes me a multifaceted graphic designer with different abilities amongst various platforms.
I enjoy working in different design areas with illustrations, motion graphics, confident typography, editorial and information design. However, I‘m eager to acquire new skills, a quick learner, and self-reflective as is evidenced by my Master‘s graduation with distinction and a diverse design portfolio.
My goal as a designer is to move people and impact their lives positively with my graphics as well as to help my customers to tell their stories in a unique and fascinating way.
I am always looking out for new, exciting freelance projects but would also be thrilled about working as part of a team in an agency. Anyways, I'd love to hear from you!
