About me
Hi! I’m Melanie, motion and interaction designer, currently living in Hamburg, Germany.
Always looking for new adventures and challenges, I conceive and create colorful and complex graphics, animations, products and applications.
In my work, I always have 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 my 15 to 20 years of experience I have worked in various design disciplines and fields. Once started as a professional graphic designer, I advanced my knowledge to digital design and moving images — working as director, camerawoman, motion designer and interaction designer. My 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, I have already worked for various agencies, companies and clients and also shared my knowledge as a lecturer in the university sector.
Clients I have worked for include a.o.:
Adobe, Bosch, Volkswagen, Nintendo, Ikea, Audi, Hospital Records, Daimler, Merck, Migros, Tchibo, Deichmann, Drapers, Nissin Foods, KNF, ADC, Esprit
