Bertelsmann – Corporate Book

Eleven stories about creativity

CREATING A BOOK ABOUT THE BERTELSMANN GROUP

We talked to teams and individuals within the Bertelsmann Group and asked them “What’s your story?”
From this, we created eleven fascinating stories: from an author who has signed 150,000 books, to a remarkable interview with Pelé, to shrimp fishermen in Alaska.

Creativity starts in the mind. Artists channel that creativity and shape it on the pages of their notebooks.

I took the aesthetic of an artist’s sketchbook and combined it with a more traditional book layout. The sketch-like illustrations and photographs, classically-staged with added coloured brushstrokes, combines loose, preliminary sketches with more refined design elements for a complete and imaginative final product.

A stage for ideas – employees in the spotlight

The success of Bertelsmann as a media company rests on the creativity of its employees. Whether they are program makers, producers, publishers, journalists, entrepreneurs or engineers, their ideas inspire millions around the world. We brought the people behind this success into the spotlight.

Individual portraits for individual minds. Always in the right setting - whether they are program makers, series pioneers or digital visionaries.
Eleven stories – eleven icons
I illustrated the articles with sketches that reflect the unique qualities of each story.

German Olympic Sports Confederation – Fan App

Explore, follow, cheer

CREATING AN APP TO CONNECT ATHLETES AND FANS

Explore, Follow, Cheer: this is how the app connects German Squad athletes with fans, and captures the power of cheering in a digital space for the first time.

We developed the App “Wir-für-Deutschland” (Us-for-Germany) for the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi.

It offered an intuitive way for fans to interact directly with athletes, as well as a user-friendly database with information about the Olympic squad and their sports.

I designed an interface that mimics the circular forms of the Olympics symbol using colours from the German flag. The project challenged me to combine these two worlds while maintaining an intuitive, easy-to-use interface.

Fans increased their “fan powers” by using the different functionalities of the app. Gamification lead to more involvement and higher usage.
