The graduate designer for communication design has been working for WHITE PLATE clients since the beginning. In 25 years of professional experience, he has combined his design creativity, computer skills with technical know-how (e.g. for prepress, printing and finishing techniques as well as for online projects, programming and optimization).
During this period this resulted in a large number of high-quality print products and digital presentations with a focus on the areas of food, lifestyle and sports. What makes him special: he puts the wishes and needs of the customer in the center of his focus, and in doing so he concentrates on their individual requirements and concerns.
