Freelance work

I've had the pleasure to work with clients in many different fields over the last ten years, small to big. I design everything from websites to apps, develop and prototype concepts, code landing pages or shops or do creative- and art direction for brands.

The following are some excerpts of my more recent work. See my full client list.



  • Among others, my work has been awarded by Awwwards, Mindsparkle Mag and Red Dot and featured on SiteInspire, One Page Love, The Gallery and klikkenthéke.

  • I grew up near Cologne and have been living in Berlin for the last six years.

  • I'm self-taught.

  • I was part of the freelance group The Good Life Collective for a few years.

  • Depending on the project, I like to partner up with selected freelancers from my network on a regular basis, so it’s possible to offer a wide range of expertise specifically tailored to each project.
