To promote their new album, I teamed up with the UK-based Darkwave/Dark-Synhpop band Massive Ego to create a logo ident, which has been shown on their tour, supporting Blutengel (Leitbild Tour 2017)
This logo ident was a great start in creating their new music video to ´Let Go´, written by Pop/Fashion-Icon Boy George. ´Let Go´ spreads a longing for nostalgia and the wishful thinking of what might have been...
I visualized that in an omnipresent organism, which spreads out and takes over all the good memories until it becomes impossible for us to enjoy them.
Once you let go off those negative voices,
moments in the past shine in a brighter light.

Ich liebe meine Vagina is a music video,
I have created in collaboration with Grausame Töchter.
Follow a young lady who is being pulled into a mysterious underwater dungeon, that forces her to lose control and to widen her horizon of lust. Masochistic tendensies are being discovered and eliminate earthly habits, like doubts, worries and hysteria.

Metafisica is a series of short videos, animated to show the power of human imagination during a dream.
Your mind is able to build a bridge between the real world and your dreams. For instance, if you would hold a jar in your sleep, your mind might reconstruct a whole story around this jar, whether it makes sense or not. In six animated shorts, I want to emphasize within different scenarios, that we should be embracing the images we create during our dreams, because our mind often is more expressive and individualistic, than we could possibly imagine. Each video is picturing one aspect of our perception of dreams.
A dream, often visualized as a diffused reality, a blurry world, is given a distance through the veil covering it.
The fragile side of a dream. Very often, you wish, that you would never stop dreaming, but than all of a sudden the dream pops like a bubble.
Constructed around the topic of strange proportions. Dreams are literally distorted worlds. Tiny things appear to be gigantic and big things shrink to microscopic sizes.
The feeling of a nightmare. Whereas joyful dreams usually stop in the happiest moments, nightmares wont give you the possibility of escape. It becomes a coffin which forces you stay, no matter how uncomfortable it becomes.
The chasing monster in the common nightmares. He chases his victims and strives to get their identities, their faces. They become his masks, which he uses to trick further victims.
The most common association that people have with dreams. A surreal wonderland, in which Absurdity makes you believe anything. It becomes a parallel world in which realistic aspects are present but twisted.

Which kind of designer am i?
I am intrigued by visual impacts.
Constantly my eyes are looking for visual sensations.
I consider myself being an image designer.
I like to work in the fields of sets/ scenography and athmospheres.
My way of working can be seen as clashing opposing elements.
Mainly classic elements colliding with modern or contemporary aspects.
This clash often creates something new,
but it all stays within a visual experimentation.
So the image is my laboratory, my stage, my identity.

That is the goal of the Dekotora community. Their decorated trucks are the eyecatcher of Japans highways.
hen Gundam aesthetic meets Baroque Ballroom.
Standing out by all means necessary and
to outbling each other.
In a small publication, I have done extensive research into the 'Dekotora' subculture.
An inspiration animation for new patterns based on the dekotora subculture.
Dekotora crosses aspects of French Glamour with Gundam Transformer Aesthetics.
Inside Glam outside Gundam.
In this animation I want to bring both together in one element to also create a new visual language of two sides that at first side might not be such a good match.
Glamtech serves as an inspiration for new visions in textile design.

A Fashion Protest against the Greyscale as a comfort zone of dressing.
Conformity overrules the Individualistic period we live in.
