Mobile Banking

To execute financial transactions via the mobile is no novelty but to view and manage your funds intuitively with real time display in the cloud is #innovative – and possible with the #app I designed April 2014 for Robein. Together with the mobile developer I was responsible to work out the info structure, the wire frame design and to design screens that work as a perfect overview and tool palette on your finger tip over individual financial portefeuilles. beauty_shots_app

An example screen of how you can examine your current and past performance by dragging the pink field over the graph.13981250258_f1d9819645_z

I especially liked the  simplistic icons on top navigation row which work with initials as I think that there is an overflow of semantic icons in this day and age. At the bottom tab you have already semantic icons for Home, Portfolio, Funds and Contact. It is generally known and popular amongst tech-driven people to work with letter shortcuts, so I think the iconic initials on the top really make sense.14164571761_226abf6b67_b

The development is a native app for IOS, later Android version should follow. This projected was connected to the redesign of the brand and website of the financial institution “Robein” which I have partly contributed to with graphics, an info brochure and portrait photography in a certain corporate style.

Wine Quatro

Central in this style stands a graphic of a tile mosaic which is supposed to resemble and hint at typical mediterranean shapes. As a final result I aimed to achieve a bold display as well as a strong connection yet a certain variation between the bottles. Besides the distinct #white space I also designed each of the label to be slightly #asymmetric in their proportions. Each label will be therefore slightly different and be laser cut.

Front and back labels are designed in asymmetrical fashion and use colours of the wine itself with white accentuations. The variations between each label are subtle and therefore reinforce the whole idea of product family.Wine Bottle Mockup_backside

In December 2014, this series of four wines was originally designed to be all in cool grey shades with just a little colour accentuation but the client was requesting a more colourful design.

Artisinal

Artisanal packaging design

I always feel #lucky to create my designs around yummy things! And to be able to adorn them with #illustrations. That way I am a very #durable designer because I can create or recreate almost any illustration style required – no image agency or fees needed.
For the brand “Maypole” I was asked to design labels for bottles and jars in October 2014. The products are very artisanal and produced and traded mostly for gift hampers. So my starting point were illustrations which go nicely with the product.

Here is a gif of how the different steps, first sketching and colouring than tracing and colouring again in Illustrator. The result are a very dynamic and original illustrations.

Liquids to design were one lemon-flavoured liqueur and one olive oil, further on I designed jar labels and sealers for in total 6 sweet and savory spreads.   mockup_MaypoleJar_Tags_MarmaladeJar_Tags_savoury

Life is a full circle!

What you give comes back. This is a beautiful concept. Give love to get love. This is an online #charity #campaign I designed in February 2015 for PFA Agra. Launch was on Valentines Day 2015. This campaign has only a few but essential ingredients: Love, compassion, people and street animals. The simplistic web template, typical photography and light info graphics support the crowd funding message and the ease in which support can be offered.

  The #logo design reflects the simplicity and pureness of the campaign. It has to work in big and small scales for social media with a good contrast to the environment.

Talking to kids here, advertising Santa´s Magical Phone Booth

Fun and bright childrens #illustrations for a Christmas #promotion. The initial job was to create a logo, which also works in one color. So I started in Illustrator creating the working vector image, and colored it afterwards in Photoshop.Xmas_logo_web2

The crown the boy is wearing is part of the Logo of the shopping mall “The Duke”. The final real built booth looked stunning.

For internet and print adverts I have put some scenes together according to the style of the logo. Doing this work for Keen I found out that #character design isn´t as easy as one might think but definitively much fun. Xmas_logo_web3xmas_snowsphere_webBooth2

Travel app

Not to use free icon sets is sometimes a waste of time but to create special icon sets for special businesses is a must! The style junkies launched their #app and I designed customized icons with a twist, showing “Home” as a suitcase and “About” being a miniature portrait of the company owner, who is a sparkling and fun young travel expert.13599531103_2cab9c068c_c

Voyeuristic logo design

To flaunt sth.; to show off sth., to collect objects related to #personal lifetime #memories – this is what the dutch collective of cultural researchers and curators of Pronkzucht are creating space and attention for.
The logo design brief required to show a multitude of of objects like a blackbird, flowers, a pedestal, classic and yet personal items referring to history and past.

Print

This project is a collaboration with my friend and graphic designer Johanna Bayerlein, who sketched out the idea of creating an initial “P” which becomes a furniture-like cabinet stuffed with memories. Raising #curiosity and serving also the voyeuristic aspect of watching other peoples very personal items. Close up on details of the Pronkzucht Logo and single elements.

Iconic dog

Making a #software product human and easy to use is one big #UX goal. Can an association help to transport the idea of safety and protection? The idea behind showing a dog as a part of a company logo was to present a smart, sympathetic guard who acts as a reliable and clever watchdog over your (document) belongings. All dogs are vector work based on digital sketches.

Design proposals along the line “contract watchdog” and web designs.dog_icons12680932013_50a75ea4c5_c14007749195_80ec858c49_b13597627003_104b934e43_b13597544965_d75c7a12b3_b13597544785_748d74bf1d_b
