About me
Melanie is a Creative Art Director for motion and interaction design from Germany.
Always looking for new adventures and challenges, she conceives and creates colorful and complex graphics, animations, products and applications.
In her work, she always has in mind to get the most out of the little by using simple techniques in a creative way — skillfully applied to create something new and unseen — to offer unconventional styles and views in order to explore new ways of realizing things. As a result, users and designers are commonly impressed and feel inspired.
In her 15 to 20 years of experience she has worked in various design disciplines and fields. Once started as a professional graphic designer, she advanced her knowledge to digital design and moving images — working as director, camerawoman, motion designer and interaction designer. Her strongest desire is to learn, understand and combine as many disciplines as possible in order to achieve the best possible result that is well thought through from the beginning to the end.
Thus, she has already worked for various agencies, companies and clients and also shared her knowledge as a lecturer in the university sector.
Clients Melanie worked for include a.o.:
Adobe, American Cancer Society, AARP, Bosch, Volkswagen, Nintendo, Ikea, Audi, Hospital Records, Daimler, Merck, Migros, Poshmark, Tchibo, Deichmann, Drapers, Nissin Foods, KNF, ADC, Esprit
