Service Description

I founded DesignBuro in the early 1990s in Dusseldorf, Germany with freelance work for several advertising agencies as well as handling my own clients from quotations to the final delivery.

Nightshifts for a management consultant drastically enhanced my knowledge of MS word as well as PowerPoint to my core fields (concept and typography). However, stationary packs turned out to be the bread&butter jobs but editorial design remains my favourite.

Moving to Namibia in 1996 polished my English, re-locating to South Africa in 2007 opened new doors towards architectural design and virtual 3D presentation techniques.

My design style is personal, thoughtful, clean and straight, I like geometrical symbols as they seem to best survive design trends and subsequently believe that "one idea is enough" (in each design, not overall of course). In other words "less is more". I have a very diligent work attitude, high expectations to my own quality, understand the importance of deadlines and keep them.
