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 illustrations to visual concepts for clients for cultural events, exhibitions or business and science 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.

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