Deutsch

Hi, I’m a freelance book designer based in Germany.

As a graphic designer, editor, and production manager,
I enjoy a good reputation among publishing companies, institutions,
and individuals that strive for excellence in book publishing.

I hold a master’s degree in art history and have an academic education in
archaeology, literature, and media studies. Before I started my own business,
I held positions as editor, graphic designer, and product manager.
With my Academic Publishing Service, I have dedicated myself fully to
raising the bar in publishing in the fields of arts and sciences.

During my career, I’ve had the pleasure of working with several overseas museums,
including the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Neue Galerie in New York
and the Aga Khan Museum in Toronto. I’ve also worked on books with artists such as
Francesco Clemente, Markus Jansen, and Janaina Tschäpe. I design and typeset
books in English and French regularly, but also in other languages.

My design philosophy centers on the physical book as a user-friendly,
attractive, and time-tested means of communicating complex contents.
I enjoy bringing strong attention to detail with regard to typographic excellence.
A special passion of mine is photography, which comes in handy
whenever I’m in charge of art reproduction and quality control.

You can look at my newest projects in the > NEWS < section (German only).
