Hello, I'm Robert, graphic designer in Munich. I find design solutions for small and large companies. Whether classic corporate design projects, logos, icons, monograms and custom type logos. Deep understanding of calligraphy, handlettering and typography helps me a lot. 

If you want to learn handlettering or brushlettering, feel free to check out my workshops on site or via Zoom. For English speaking participants I offer the intensive Flourish seminar via Zoom. Here you get to my workshops

It is always a highlight for guests and customers at events and faires, to do Live-Lettering in front of their eyes. Writing their name or a phrase in a calligraphic style is a pleasure to witness. Guests can also be invited to write with the tools and learn little things about the technique of calligraphy. For event request please write a mail.

 

Milestones

 

Italy

1995 I am going to Florence for six months. Experiencing Italian culture is my motivation. The Tuscan city led me to go to Milan in 1997 for eight years, where from initial commercial work (purchasing) I end up in an advertising agency and become a graphic designer.

Freelancer

2005 I go back to Germany with my wife. In Munich I start as a freelancer and take care of a monthly magazine, support agencies with projects like websites, brochures and corporate design.

Networking Events

2012 After attending numerous networking events, I organize my own events on the topic of Gourmet&Design, so that self-employed people can get to know each other and exchange ideas in a nice ambience and over culinary delights.

Handlettering

2014 I started the mastercourse at seanwes and became a member in seanwes-community. Since then i committed totally to handlettering, bruslettering and flourishes.

Workshops

2016 In the summer I start my own workshops on handlettering, brushlettering and flourishes. Starting in Munich, there are now over 100 workshops that I have given throughout Germany.
