The series "Once upon a time there was... now is!" deals with the digital change of our time. The illustrations examine the impact of our digital technologies on our daily lifes.
Based on a template from the fairy tales of the Brothers Grimm, the project combines traditional graphic design with a range of artistic and illustrative sujets juxtaposed with different rhytmes. Each illustration, which is completely unique in its composition, illustrates a subject from a selected fairytale setting, while the artificial slogan reinforce the expressiveness of the artwork.

It is said that the forms of snow crystals are far greater than the number of atoms in space. Suddenly you can imagine that there is no snowflake that is like the other one. Just like your style. Be unique - be yourself.

Travel can be a necessity or it can be a luxury; one would say the first is migration and the second is tourism. Those are two extremes, however it illustrates a point, that in a globalised world; whilst in theory we don’t need to travel much since everything is a click away, actually, in actual fact it fires an insatiable desire to experience more.
Yet, we’re not the only ones to travel; animals, objects, nature, and all the molecules and atoms that make up the world are constantly interchanging over the course of time. We call it flight time which is the unit that controls the animals, objects, molecules and nature to travel through a medium at a distance.

Die Arbeit ist eine bewusste Auseinandersetzung mit meinen eigenen, negativen Gedanken und Stimmungsschwankungen, indem sie die dunklen Aspekte meiner Psyche darstellt. Sie bringt den Betrachter in einen höllischen Ort, in dem die Wahrnehmung verschiedene Raumvorstellungen formt und auflöst, in dem sich die Sinne verflechten und in dem versucht wird die Lücken unserer Wahrnehmung mittels unserer (Bild-)sprache zu schließen.

In der banal illustrieren Welt ist de Hölle in mir selbst. Sie lässt mich allein zurück, findet keine Ende, ergibt keinen Sinn. Sie türmt sich vor mir auf wie ein hoher Berg und lässt mich tief in ein Loch fallen. In der Arbeit verschwimmen die Grenzen zwischen dem, was echt ist und dem, was nicht echt ist. Sie erinnert an die Feldforschung eigener, unterdrückter Wünsche, wo sich dunkle Gedanken in eine düstere Welt verwandeln. Die Arbeit ist tief mit meinen Emotionen verwurzelt. Auch die Motive fühlen sich pessimistisch an; Sie jagen einander hinterher, spucken Feuer, spielen mit Schlamm.

Die Absicht meiner Arbeit soll den magischen Blick auf einige unserer grundlegenden Gedanken auf ein extremes Niveau maximieren. Die Illustrationen sind surreal, kindlich, ehrlich. Sie sind inspiriert von Momenten intensiver Höhen und Tiefen. Es sind Momente von Planung und Zufall, Erinnerung und Vergessen, Wahrheit und Lüge.

YOROKOBU is a contemporary sans serif with graphical characters. 'Yorokobu' means 'to be happy' in Japanese. The font is inspired by the art of folding called 'Origami'. Its geometric typographic design comes with upper and lower case characters, punctuations and numbers. Initially it was designed with paper by hand, then digitally adjusted and finally converted into an opentype font. Core elements are its geometric form and its consecutive character. All letters are designed to work together but can also easily be used individually. YOROKOBU comes in one weight. Other characters — Fractions, Tabular Lining, Ligature, Alternate Characters, Symbols — are not included yet.

Paradise is a place where I can pursue my dreams. I imagine a world where you can go after your dreams in the most visible, tangible and feasable way. I imagine a world where dreams are real and live around us like every other natural, or, in fact, supernatural creature.
This project is a study of dreams. I imagined what dreams are like, how and where they live and why we call them make after our deepest wishes, ambitions, aspirations and fantasies.
But as soon as I can imagine them, they dissapear under the grey fog of expectations.

Automated machines that take over the physical labour of workers; obsolete people who make their money at leisure, a (virtual) currency that is produced solely by our body heat and works independently from the financial market. Sounds heavenly?
