2022 Graphite, Inkscape, Blender
This is an idea I had for a long time. I wanted to create a graphical anagram which balances itself inbetween decoration and typography.

The Pillars of Autocracy
2021 Graphite / Ink, Photoshop
User guides are, in my opinion, a supreme discipline in design. With that in mind, I was looking for something interesting that would be simple enough to convey in an infographic. That’s how I came up with the idea of depicting the Pillars of Autocracy by Johannes Gerschewski, even though it is not a procedural phenomenon.
More about it here: Die drei Säulen und das Überleben
elektoraler Autokratien – Eine Replik by Gerschewski, Johannes (2017) in Zeitschrift für Vergleichende Politikwissenschaft 11(2), 237-246.

I designed this in preparation for the Schall & Rauch technoparty at the Jos Fritz Cafe Freiburg.
The aim of the graphic is to convey a feeling of loud noise or overkill without being too serious.
The title of this graphic is chosen according to my interpretation of donald duck as a working-class antihero suffering from capitalism.

This illustration was part of Movement Motus promotional purposes. Movement Motus(in short: MoMo), was a registered voluntary cooperation of young adults for the benefit of refugees in the years 2015-2020.
We established a series of parties: GRENZEN WEGDANCEN, that invited a wide variety of people to participate, regardless of social classes and categories. The parties provided a place to meet in a relaxed situation and a space to break down fears of contact. The funds generated at the parties were fully donated to selected local or global refugee organisations involved in humanitarian aid, education, outreach, trauma care, etc.
Our motivation was to give the refugee debate, which is often portrayed negatively and controversially in the german leading media and public discourse, a new approach and handling based on grassroots participation.
