If you follow me on Instagram, you might have seen already some pictures from my trip to the Dutch Design Week in Eindhoven. It’s a very nice and inspiring design festival with a lot of interesting locations. Today, a small collection of my favorite texture inspirations.
I have a new summer workshop coming up in July at the Weisbach Lab. Together with a German association I’m holding a workshop for creative students professionals from July 27th until August 2nd in Plauen, Germany.
The theme of the workshop is “Capturing atmospheres in the digital age”.
During this week, you’ll learn how to become more aware of atmospheres and how to translate them into your work. The workshop will be based on short excursions, practical activities, talks and presentations.
First, you will learn how to recognize, capture and visualize atmospheres. In a second step, I’ll show you how to use your research to build emotion into your project and craft an identity. Together we’ll visit inspiring places, exchange with locals and gather impressions. Photography will be our primary tool in the creative process in order to capture atmospheres.
If you want to attend you need to hurry up and register here before 8. July 2014
“I just can’t get enough” of the super cool Depeche Mode Fan Exhibition in Berlin Mitte. I’ve never been a huge fan, but this exhibition knocked me out of my shoes. While I’m writing this post I’m listening to “A question of lust” and “Everything counts” for the 100th time. The soundtrack of my youth. I’m obsessed!
Don’t miss it! Open till June 20th 2013, daily from 12:00 – 21:00 at Warenhaus Jandorf, Brunnenstr.19 (corner of Veteranenstr.) Berlin, Mitte
Today some snapshots from the opening of the exhibition “L’art du jardin” at Grand Palais in Paris. It has been the most beautiful garden installation I have ever seen. The perfect inspiration for urban garden lovers, so fun and crazy. Did you see the cute tricycle lawn-mower by ATYPYK? A brilliant idea for keeping the kids busy on Sundays.

For a while now, I’ve been wishing for much more time to work on personal projects. One of them was a guide about my city: Berlin.
In the beginning of this year, I finally made the step towards more independence and freedom. I quit my job and started cruising the city with my camera. I’m so happy and proud to launch today NotQuiteBerlin.
It’s a personal city guide where I share my favorite places, tips and ideas. You can find plenty of addresses where to get the best cakes and coffee, the coolest outfits and the most delicious dinner.
The rules of my guides are simple: the places have to have great service and a good atmosphere.
I love to support nice people with cool ideas.
