    Designer, UX Consultancy, Advertrising, Brand and Corporate

    Already in my years of study at the "Vienna University of Economics and Business" I worked as designer. Initially specialized in graphics and corporate identity, my interests soon extended by digital design and web development. I always believed that long-term client relationships with a high commitment were much more effective in achieving projected outcomes. The same approach I adopted in partner cooperations which you have to rely on especially for larger projects. I also founded "Zeitvertrieb" – an Off-space gallery in the heart of Vienna.

The title »JAPAN Now« refers to the situation after the tsunami and its aftermath: the earthquake, the destruction, the many victims. And the (still threatening) nuclear collapse, that should make us all think.
