Who I am and my way of thinking

Who I am

Hello, I'm Antonia, a freelance communication designer who can usually be found somewhere between Karlsruhe and Schwäbisch Gmünd. In addition to my work, I like to design for fun, draw, illustrate and try my hand at sewing clothes.

Following my → KATAPULT preliminary studies at the HS Pforzheim, I started my path as a designer at the → HfG Schwäbisch Gmünd. I spent my internship semester in 2021 at → 2k kreativkonzept in Karlsruhe. In 2022, I went to Tel Aviv, Israel, to study for six months at → HIT (Holon Institute of Technology). I completed my studies at the HfG Schwäbisch Gmünd in February 2023 with a B.A. in Communication Design.

Since then I have been working as a freelance communication designer for → WERTansich(t), among others. In fall 2023, I moved back to Pforzheim, where I am currently studying → Creative Direction in the Master's program.

In addition to my → Projects, you can find all kinds of experiments and fun projects that are imperfect and unfinished at the → Playground.

My way of thinking

For me, good design is all about one thing in particular: logic. Logic is essential because I want my designs to work and and therefore to deal with the "Why?" behind my design decisions. I am fascinated by the beauty and clarity of systems and grids and the courage to stretch and break them in the right places. I rather work with than for people and I sympathize with letting myself be driven by the process, because, in my experience, flexible and agile approaches often produce the best results.
