Currently I am managing a design team at United Digital Group in Ludwigsburg as Teamlead Design / Senior Art Director.
Originally from the region of Cologne, Germany, I spent 14 years working at various international companies and internet agencies. I worked and lived in Boston, Massachusetts for two years.
From 2005 until 2012, I focused on ecommerce at dmc digital media center as art director. I conceptualized and designed online storefronts. In addition to that, I consulted companies concerning their ecommerce strategy and did a lot of pitch work.
Parallel to working at dmc, I enjoyed teaching “Interactive Media” as an adjunct professor for five years at “Hochschule der Medien Stuttgart”.
Besides work, I truly love to create. While my interests in the arts are vast, I especially love taking photos and making music (acoustic and electronic).
I received a diploma (four-year-degree) in Visual Communication/Graphic Design from Fachhochschule Aachen, Germany. My project ’17 – animated typography’ was awarded wit the Lucky Strike Junior Designer Award 2002. You can watch the projekt here: http://www.annexxa.de/siebzehn.swf
