Nice to meet you.

A few words about me.

mk-portrait-2400x1350px-2

I am a Graphic and UI Designer based in Basel, Switzerland, with several years of experience in print and web. I am a fan of straightforward design with high attention to detail and a dash of humour.

While working as a freelance designer recently, I have been mainly developing brand identities and websites for small and middle-sized companies.

My studies in Visual Communication gave me a strong understanding of typography and concept-focused design. After graduating with a Bachelor of Arts, I worked for different agencies in Basel and Zurich.

Driven by a wide interest and a fair amount of fearlessness, I co-founded former design collective MOTO. Passionate for both print and screen, I was responsible for a diverse range of clients and projects from start to finish. It formed my belief in simple but strong ideas turned into a neat solution. And, that good design is more than a beautiful surface: I see my work as a tool to shape our world and society responsibly. 

When I’m not at work I’m usually eating chocolate, lacing up my running shoes or try to be out-of-the-doors and enjoy nature.
