About

Maps and Nature

I’ve moved to the UK from Germany over 10 years ago. I worked as a graphic designer in magazine and book publishing, when I decided to go freelance and start my own business. I wanted to work on personal projects and be more in control of my own time.

I love creating typographic maps of countries using their main language. It’s exciting and sometimes tricky to design a map in a different language than my own. I hugely enjoyed, making the map of Israel in Hebrew or South Korea in Hangul. My maps can be personalised by highlighting or adding places, that are important to you.

My love of plants and nature led to my leaf art and botanic paintings. It’s an endless source of inspiration, that I will keep drawing from.

I always try to improve my products and service! Your feedback will be heard and taken to heart. If you have any questions or ideas for a custom gift, please don’t hesitate to get in touch. Im happy to help.
