Katrin von Niederhäusern – About

Make people smile, curious, inspired, confused or sometimes even hangry.

I am a freelance Illustrator and Art Director, ready to bring your brand, idea, article or product to life. With my background in design & communication, as well as interactive Art Direction, I develop creative concepts that thrive no matter where – digitally, analog, moving or still image. And with my love for illustration, intuition, handcraft and emotion, I try to add a human touch to my work, which forms a personal connection.

I can help you with Illustration, Graphic- and Webdesign Brand Design, Art Direction (Photography, Film, Animation) as well as Creative Concepts for Brands and Campaigns. I often work with other experts in their fields to create the best possible products.
