Background

— No future without background. Growing up in the countryside I have never been knowingly influenced by great designs. Nevertheless I always took great care in honoring my handwriting skills at primary school, made drawings by using a ruler and bought skateboard magazines because I appreciated their inspiring photographs and clean looking layouts.

After grammar school I decided to attend a Technical High School for Mechanical Engineering, after all who does not dream of flying an airplane someday? As I became a little older and my view of the world began to develop I decided this was not the right place for me and switched to classes for Media Engineering and Communications. In this new field I built a solid knowledge base of objective programming, web development and design basics.

It was at this moment I realised that my technical background is going to be the greatest influence on my future design work. I began to love the web and came up with my own website designs in a clean and often very minimalistic style.

My passion for design is ever increasing, I simply love the work I do and when you have this passion and enjoy something so much, can you really call it work?
