The Warriors (where I work) are holding a very special exhibition project: The weekly speed exhibitioning. 12 artists will create one exhibition wall each, shown over 6 weeks. I have the honor to be one of them.

A large wall full of Geometry Daily prints will be on display on Friday October 12 and the following Saturday at the Nordkurve, Rothenburger Straße 51a in Nuremberg.

My Geometry Daily Workflow

added on Friday, Aug 31, 2012 22:29 pm

After eight months and 240 posts it is about time I start writing about what happens behind the scenes of Geometry Daily. Many were asking about my workflow, particularly how the vector images are processed to get that analog look. Here it is. ¬ Full Entry

It’s nothing more than crumpled paper. But it’s also shot and lit in a way that makes it so much more interesting.

Geometry Daily

added on Sunday, Jan 01, 2012 20:10 pm

I start something new today.

In 2012, Im going to channel my enthusiasm for simple graphics in a new on-going personal design project. Starting today I will publish a new graphic artwork each and every day. Each piece will be based on simple geometric shapes and composed in a rather minimal style. I set up a new tumble log dedicated to this project. It‘s called Geometry Daily, the URL is geometrydaily.tumblr.com.

Let‘s see where this will take us and how long I can hold that up! I‘m excited. See you over there. ¬ Comments

Wacom Inkling My hands-on experiences

added on Monday, Oct 24, 2011 23:02 pm

I had my Wacom Inkling delivered three days ago. It is an awesome piece of technology, blurring the line between analog and digital drawing. Still it is far from being perfect. A lot of people already asked me about it, so here are my real-life hands-on experiences. ¬ Full Entry

Lights Interactive Music Video

added on Wednesday, Oct 12, 2011 21:11 pm


Another one of those interactive music videos, we might be talking about a new form of art soon. This time it is a poppy electro anthem by Ellie Goulding that gets a OpenGL driven 3D visualization. You steer through an colorful abstract environment that adapts to the tune. The interaction is not very deep, but still an intoxication experience. Reminded me a lot of some designs by Universal Everything though.

Living Room Songs by lafur Arnalds

added on Wednesday, Oct 05, 2011 21:45 pm

via livingroomsongs.erasedtapes.com

The best free music I heard since forever: lafur Arnalds creates and releases a new song, one per day for one whole week since Oct 3. The songs will be recorded and filmed live in the living room of his Reykjavk apartment and released instantly for FREE as streamed videos and MP3 downloads. It is mostly neo-classical melancholic instrumentals, with a little bit of electronica. Right up my alley. Above is day 2, “Near Light”.

Onformative from Berlin created this sophisticated visual language for biopharmaceutical company Actelion. Based on Processing, they built custom software tools to create the graphics for print media and animations for screens. Impressive!

Taking One Year Off

Dear world, I would like to let you know: I take the next year off. I will be staying away from agency work at the Warriors from September 2011 to August 2012. Instead, I will be taking care of our two wonderful kids (2 1/2 and nearly a year old). Twelve months of full-time Dad duties! ¬ Full Entry
