During the years, I have created several designs, logos or record covers. Mainly for music bands. Here is a little selection of my design works.
I worked with Lutz and his bands since I moved to Berlin. I designed their logo, which was used on their debut tape release "First we tape Manhattan".
Piet van den Borst & Lars Wester
For this acoustic-pop band from my hometown Essen I designed their logo and layouted their website.
Heinz König Marketing- und Medienstudien
I designed a mechanic butterfly for Heinz König as a symbol for the fields of studies, that he is covering in the area of metal production.
Rai Ko Ris - Stories from Nepal
For this nice anarcho-punk band from Kathmandu, Nepal I illustrated their last record, which was released D.I.Y. as usual. They even printed a t-shirt and some stickers with this design.
Eure Erben - Eure Fäuste
Another release by Eure Erben for which I did the cover-artwork, photos and the whole layout of the CD.
Celebrate People's History - 8.8.88
Another distribution for Josh MacPhee's poster series, this time I contributed a drawing about the democratic uprising in Burma in August 1988.
The text reads as follows: "8.8.88 - The Democratic Uprising in Burma - On August 8, 1988, hundreds of thousands of workers, students, monks, mothers and children gathered in the streets all across Burma to demand an end to the brutal military dictatorship. As a response the military junta sent troops to quell the urprising and in the following weeks ten thousand people were murdered. Thousands fled to the border into Thailand to gain refuge. Others joined rebel armies and took up arms to protect their people and fight for freedom. 8.8.88 made visible the resistance against the military and has become and enduring symbol of the Burmese struggle for democracy."

Eure Erben - same
The first record by this oldschool trash-metal band from my hometown Essen. For this CD I made the cover-artworks, layout and photos.
Eure Erben - logo
After the German trash-metal band Darkness was reunited and renamed, Eure Erben have asked me to do designs for the band and I started with creating their logo.
Celebrate People's History - White Rose
For this nice poster series from Josh MacPhee to keep the world's struggles in public's mind, I contributed this drawing about the White Rose resistance group against Hitler's Nazi-Germany.
The text reads as follows: "The White Rose - After Hitler took power in 1933, several resistance groups fought against the regime. The White Rise was founded in 1942 and based in Munich. Its members were students Hans and Sophie Scholl, Christoph Probst, Willi Graf, Alexander Schmorell, and professor Kurt Huber. Against great odds and heavy repression, they printed six different leaflets against the Nazis, and at one point they painted slogans like 'Down with Hitler' and 'Freedom' in the streets.
While distributing leaflets in 1943 they were caught and later executed. Their resistance made them legendary and gave great courage to all who opposed the Nazis.
Support the Resistance Movement - Spread Leaflets!' -
The White Rose."
