Avant les Vacances is a design studio for visual and interactive affairs. It was founded in 2016 while I was studying Graphic Design, Photography and Art Research at the HfG Karlsruhe. An intense work episode led to the idea that the studio could be associated with the smooth feeling and high productivity during the last day at the office before you leave for holidays.

I believe good digital designs (graphics) come from a deep understanding of the content (curation) and the technical structure (IT). Therefore I engage at the intersection of these three fields. This helps me developing user centered concepts with an intuitive visual language based on the latest technology. My services focus on CI as well as UX/UI for clients from the fiels of arts & design, culture and education. For getting in touch, send an email or a postcard to the studio. Open for collaborations and commissions.
