Peng! »Deutschland geht klauen«

—  Character Design & Illustration

»Bist du der sportliche Typ und rennst so schnell du kannst? Oder versuchst du es lieber möglichst unauffällig? Vielleicht bastelst du dir dein eigenes Equipment zum Klauen? Wir stellen dir verschiedene Varianten vor, um möglichst effektiv zu klauen.« Für eins der drei Videos der Kampagne »Deutschland geht klauen« des Peng! Kollektivs habe ich die Charaktere  und Illustrationen beigetragen.

»Are you the athletic type running as fast as you can? Or are you trying to be as inconspicuous as possible? Maybe you make your own equipment for snatching? We introduce you to different options to steal as effectively as possible.« For one of three videos that were part of Peng! Collective’s campaign »Supermarket Snatch« I designed the characters and did the illus­tra­tions.

Amazing Stickers

— Idea & Design

I am part of a DIY concert booking collective called S_he’s Amazing. We love music, cakes, friends, good times, all things DIY and a punk band called Team Dresch. »She’s Amazing« is one of their great songs and we chose to use it as our group name because it is empowering and super positive. However, »she« is exclusive to so many people who are ama­zing too, that we decided to change it into »s_he« in our collective name.

I liked the idea of having transparent stickers saying »S_he‘s amazing« with an arrow next to it to stick on mirrors in bars and public places, on posters, seats, benches, windows etc and finally realised the idea. If you would like to have some of these stickers, please get in touch.

A series of 3 illustrations for the monthly program flyer of ://about blank, a techno club in Berlin

Hi, I am a designer and illustrator in Berlin with a deep interest in DIY, sub and queer culture.

 

From 2007 to 2016 I put on around 100 gigs, screenings and lectures with a focus on queer/ feminist artists in Berlin as La Moustache. Occasionally I booked and co-booked European tours for mostly North American bands and sometimes joined them as their tour manager. In 2016 I co-founded a new booking collective called S_he’s Amazing.

I helped to organize several music festivals like Listen Up!, Up Your Ears and Ladyfest Berlin or put on events like Tom Tom Magazine and Missy Magazine release parties. Sometimes I hold workshops or am part of panel discussions about DIY culture.

 

I am a co-founder of queer comic zine Ethical Sloth, Make Out Magazine and Queer Zinefest Berlin.

For a couple of years I was the web mistress for Ladyfest Europe and also designed websites, logos, poster, t-shirts and flyer or made illustrations for lots of non-profit projects like Ladyfest Berlin, Ladyfest Hamburg, Ladyfest Oxford, Ladyfest Bordeaux, Berlin Queer Festival, Emancypunx, Girls Rock Camp Berlin, Up Your Ears, Listen Up! Festival, Lock Up Your Daughters, Make Out Magazine, Poopsy Club, Hugs & Kisses, fiber, qunst mag, Queer Feministischer Kalender, Feministisches Netzwerk, Other Nature and many more.
