Illustration of ornaments, 2020 – current

For several years, I have been exploring the intercultural use of ornaments and variations in their shapes across several countries. It's an ongoing personal project that I aim to publish in the future.

The first part is an insight of the project I am currently working on.

The second part is a set of ornaments (“Floral Characters“) and is drawn on a beautiful handmade deckle-edge paper.

Innsbruck Travel Guide and Notebook, 2016
Layout Design, Print, Photography
Support for the project: Prof. Maja Tzikalova
Diploma Thesis; HTL Art and Design

This book was created as a diploma project in collaboration with Valerie Galli and serves as both a travel guide and a notebook.

The text is set in English, and the viewer is presented with tasks designed to encourage drawing or simply enjoying the city.

It is printed on textured natural paper, allowing the use of any pen, thus realizing the idea of a notebook.
The Open-spine allows the book to lie flat on the table, making writing easier.

Book design for the Atelier Hermann Rosa, 2017
Layout Design, Print, Photography
Typeface: Helvetica Neue
Semester project: Prof. Gregor G. Eichinger, Academy of Fine Arts Munich

This book focuses on the house of the German sculptor and architect Hermann Rosa, which is also regarded as a architectural sculpture. 

It was important to visually portray the concept of the building and to explain its peculiarities (concrete, lighting effects, etc.).
Hermann Rosa considered the idea of Cubism down to the smallest detail which is evident throughout (see photographs) – the layout aims to reflect this idea.

Parts of the text were quoted from the editor Martin Bruhin.
