I am a Creative Director with 20+ years experience in marketing and print design: from high-end creative concepts and international advertising to corporate identity and brand development. 'Creative Direction' champions the intersection where 'Art Direction' and 'Design' meet 'Strategy', making well-informed decisions amongst tough choices with its primary concern in making sure to always support the client’s bottom line.
In the summer of 2017, after 12 years on Oahu in the Hawaiian Islands, and 14 years in Manhattan/New York City, I decided to move to Europe, where I grew up originally. My creative work will continue and new projects and challenges will present themselves: Europe will be a new experience on my creative path. In addition, I wanted to work on a book about my 26 years experience in the US, from when I finished my studies (Visual Communication) in Germany, then moved to New York City (on a Fulbright Scholarship) to finish my Masters in Media Studies, followed by International work experience as Artist, Sr. Art Director and Designer … now returning to Europe 26 years later. It will be a good and colourful story. I am excited about this project, but also look out to connect with other 'Creatives', ready for new adventures and new design challenges.
I am as passionate about my work as ever; my design work, my artwork, my writing. Over time, I came to understand that the successful philosophy in art and business is to share resources, to collaborate with other talents, and to contribute to the overall success of a project through synergy of vision, as well as innovation: to create something new and sometimes unexpected within the process. Life is good. ~ Aloha.
