C100 studio

February 2018

We chat with C100 Studio Founder, Christian Hundertmark about his typical working day (which includes way too much non-design tasks), working hard (!!), and his fun art project, LAYER CAKE, with graffiti buddy Patrick Hartl

What are some of your earliest creative memories and what lead you into design?

My first creative memory was eating a sandwich in bed when I was a young toddler and then decorating the walls with my greasy fingertips

What are your three must-read design books/blogs/podcasts and why?

"How the be a graphic designer without loosing your soul“ - Adrian Shaughnessey

"Things I have learned in my life so far“ - Stefan Sagmeister

"The graphic language of Neville Brody“ - Neville Brody

…find out by yourself then you know why.

What does a typical working day include for you right now?

 
Nothing special. A typical working day includes too much non-design communication (emails/phone calls) while I wished I had more time to work on all these wonderful projects which I couldn’t reject as they seemed to be way too interesting to decline them. Meanwhile sending stuff to the printer and writing proposals. Business as usual.

What career advice would you give your 16yr old self?

Hard work beats talent! WORK HARD! Nothing comes for granted.

What have been some of your biggest disasters and how have you learnt from it?

Hard drive crash one day before the print deadline of a 280 pages book. Almost jumped out of the window.

Tell us about any collaborations you have been working on.

My latest collaborations is not design but art, which were my roots.

Since 2016 I joined forces with my former graffiti buddy Patrick Hartl, who is a calligraffiti ambassador. As LAYER CAKE we paint canvases, paint murals and have art shows.

Brought back a lot of fun to my daily design routine.

  • We love jobs! And so does our audience. Because our following is mostly students and graduates, the best jobs to advertise are for junior and mid weight roles.

  • Welcome to our new section for freelance one-off jobs! To keep things simple, we want to connect you with the talent by advertising what you need, and encouraging people to email you directly with an example of their work. You can choose who to work with from all the submissions you receive. Everything is done online, and you can expect a designer to be dealing with you remotely. The good news is you won’t be limited to talent locally - this is advertised in each of our cities, meaning you will get a much higher standard of work to choose from. Picking a budget is very hard - we do not encourage work for a fiver like some websites, because you will end up with something worth a fiver!

    Our community is full of the best emerging talent, and a average price should be around half of that of a professional. Our community is full of the best talent, and a average price should be around $65 p/h.
