Visual works


"Design is relationships. Design is a relationship between form and content." — Paul Rand


I like to take interesting photos and to paint, to sketch and to illustrate or to play with texts, letters and fonts and to put these elements in a coherent context. The quotation above of US graphic designer Paul Rand gets to the heart of the purpose of good design for me.


My visual works consist of selected photographies, illustrations, sketches, paintings and typography, always looking to have some interesting details or a subliminally humorous charakter. In my view good graphic design always makes you grin a little. Not throughout because it’s funny but also because it’s somehow clever or just ingenious, fascinating.


But most important for me and my work in the design field is the minimalist maxim 'less is more'.


However, you may take a look for yourself.
