23
YEARS DESIGN EXPERIENCE

DESIGN & MULTIMEDIA AWARDS
12
YEARS UNIVERSITY PROFESSOR

I consult, develop concepts and design only or service from a to z. I cover complete campaigns, or develop single solutions. I work alone, set up project teams or merge into existing teams.

In parallel I am a Professor and Prorector at “Burg Giebichenstein University for Art and Design Halle” – one of the biggest German Art Universities founded in 1915.

Teaching gives me the possibility to pass on what I‘ve learned over the years and gives me the opportunity to experiment with new technologies and formats to update and expand my professional knowledge continuously.

In my early professional career I co-founded and lead SCHOLZ & VOLKMER for almost a decade – todays largest German multimedia agency.

The work I was responsible for has been awarded with over 100 national and international design and multimedia awards, like Cannes Lions, ADC New York, London International Advertising Awards, New York Festivals, Clio, One Show, Cresta, DDC, and many more.

CREATIVITY MULTIPLIED WITH EXPERIENCE PLUS JOY

My working formula.

My benefit is my creativity. This so far never-ending source is the base of everything I do. The combination with over 20 years of experience in divers settings of multimedia and communication and in numerous working fields gives me the confidence to create an extraordinary good solution for each given task.

I love going on the hunt for the individual potential that lays in each given task – whether it’s an idea, a brand, a product or a service. Once identified I focus, condense and excerpt the essence of it and transform it into a message, a design, a product, an application, …

Besides that I enjoy working with nice people and appreciate its side effects: the positive influences it has on the results.
