About me
Hi, my name is Susan Baldermann. I am a graphic designer working in various fields of graphic communication. My work ranges from identity design, information design, and editorial design to visual concepts for clients for cultural events or business and urban projects.

Besides a content-driven approach, I focus on a process-oriented workflow including experimental ways of form finding, exploration of emergent creative tools, and calculated use of intended accidental discoveries. I am very keen on incorporating new trends in design, fashion, music and art into my work following the philosophy »grab it, play with it, and develop and realise an idea«. In this way I keep my graphic vocabulary versatile, evolutionary and surprising.

In addition to my personal work as a designer, I have been regularly involved in academic teaching. At the United POP Academy (Leipzig) I have been responsible for the Graphic Design Class in the Bachelor’s Program since 2015. I work as a guest lecturer at Anhalt University (Dessau) and Martin Luther University (Halle).

I received a Bachelor and a Master of Arts in Graphic Design from Anhalt University. Currently, I work and live in Leipzig, Germany.
