I have been doing Graphic Design and Brand Development for nearly 20 years, but maintain as much excitement and engagement with my work today as I ever have in the past.

I first studied Graphic Design at the HTL fur Bau und Kommunikationsdesign (Communication Design) in Linz, Austria.
HTL is a reputable Higher Learning Vocational College institution that rewards graduates with a Diplom Ingeniers Degree (roughly the equivalent to a US Bachelors Degree).

After graduating in 1997, I went on to study for four more years at the University of Linz for Visual Media Design under award winning renowned European advertising strategist and poster design pioneer Professor Marek Freudenreich.
During my studies at the University for Arts I was recruited by a small startup design and printing company in Linz that pioneered digital print on demand and is now a market leader there.

I went on to work for a Boutique Advertisement Agency in Linz called ArtKonzept Werbeagentur Linz, where I contributed to campaigns for local and national brands.

In 2003, I relocated to Los Angeles and started my own design and brand development consultancy.
Through my varied work experience, and by frequent customer requests, I began to aid businesses and entrepreneurs with their marketing needs as well.
Ever since it has been a natural progression for me to be involved with the strategic big-picture aspects of brand identity development and communications design.
Although I am now a seasoned designer, brand developer, and marketing strategist, I still believe in the importance of continued education and training.
I always want to stay abreast of emerging trends and help my clients stay competitive with the newest tools and knowledge available.
Currently I am enrolled in a marketing and web analytics certificate program at UCLA.

• Clients

I prefer not to namedrop and I value the confidentiality of my former clients, but would like you to know the diversity and breadth of my work experience. I have worked on projects for small businesses, independent entrepreneurs, and Fortune 500 companies – and in a wide range of industries including entertainment, retail, medical, consumer products, and mass media. You can be confident that I can achieve real results, regardless of the size or type of your business.

• Philosophy

In my experience working with my customers, I have consistently seen that success as an entrepreneur or the growth of a business starts with an optimal brand identity and an equally well-crafted strategy to reach the right audience. The priority I have for these two concerns is what guides my design and helps me find the right solutions for my clients.

“Like all forms of design, visual design is about problem solving, not about personal preference or unsupported opinion.” –Bob Baxley

"Design is not just what it looks like and feels like. Design is how it works.” – Steve Jobs
