Hello

I’m Sina and working as a freelance designer in Berlin.

 

Besides free projects I work as a freelance designer/ art director for agencies and publishers. I do anything from concept to final artwork, with creation being my favourite part of my work and typography my passion.

 

At University of Applied Science Mainz I studied Communication Design, including a semester at the art college of Plymouth in Exeter, UK, and an internship in Milan. Before I did an apprenticeship in Media Design in Frankfurt/Main and gained experience in Art Direction, worked also in Zurich.

I came to Berlin via London in 2010. Six years later I was admitted as a member of the ADC (Art Directors Club).

 

Beside my diverse jobs I upgraded my studies in type design, for example by having visited several type design classes of Lucas de Groot.
In two winter semesters I taught project-oriented design (corporate identity/design) at design academy berlin.

 

Over the years I have established a broad and close-knit network of programmers, editors, photographers, illustrators and other designers.

 

It goes without saying that I always endeavour to create work of high quality with rigorous demands on creativity, flexibility and reliability.

 

Please feel free to contact me via mail!
