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

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.
