welcome willkommen bienvenue
I am a German-American who has spent nearly equal time in Europe and the United States. Through adapting to new countries (and places within countries), I’ve developed a strong sense of intuition. This sense is a great asset in designing promotions for a targeted audience.
My career launched at Young & Rubicam in London. In succession, I created designs in San Francisco for political campaigns; Köln, Germany at Cato Johnson for Ford Motors, Inc.; Chicago for Houghton Mifflin Company and Encyclopaedia Britannica Publishing; Santa Barbara for non-profits, magazines and fine arts; Washington DC for the Federal Aviation Association (FAA) and Diabetes Research. Currently based in the Santa Barbara, CA, I make several trips to Europe yearly.
I am open and flexible with clients and know how important it is to find common ground to ensure success. I will talk with you and revise the project until you are happy and will manage it at your pace. I am open to taking the whole project and running with it or taking it slowly, bit by bit — whatever makes you comfortable. Working with a client is a collaboration that can only be built on trust.
The bottom line is that each project is unique: No two are ever alike nor should they be. Your brand, product, service or organization must be projected to your audience in a way that expresses exactly what you want to say in a streamlined and meaningful way with the most impact.
