About Me

ABOUT ME

I'm frank, a hopeless chaotic, bemused, ...and yet a solid rock

I'm a hungarian gal, (who grew up in Austria most of her life). --Came back from ERASMUS in Ireland, finished studies and am now working in a Design Studio in Den Haag, The Netherlands). Since I graduated from my Communication Design studies in the wild heart of Germany in 2012, I am a freelance professional.

I mainly do book and editorial design, corporate, and also some photography.......lo-fi analogue and digital

PHILOSOPHY

The cow is mother to the milk, and grandma both to the cheese and butter. the cheese is cousin to the marmelade. the horse is cousin to the cock.
