::: NEW ENTRY ::: KATRIN VON NIEDERHÄUSERN

Concept & Illustration

This time we’ve asked our artist, to introduce herself, by herself:

 

“I’m Katrin, but some call me Cindy Winkelried. It’s a weird story that I would be happy to
tell you another time. Born and 
raised on the beautiful Bözberg in the Kanton Aargau
(also known as the coolest Kanton in Switzerland, I heard), I moved to Denmark last April
and currently live in Copenhagen, where I work as a designer at a digital creative agency.

In my illustrations I always love to bring an edge. You know, a little humor or some jokes
that make you smile. But mostly, I love to hide easter eggs or insiders for my friends.
Often I take inspiration directly from them. And from everything else I love,
like dancing lindy hop, playing ping pong, old lamborghinis,
gruyère cheese, campari. Just the good things in life.

Some people say they like working with me, because I DO things,
instead of only talking about it. Sometimes I think we should be less afraid of the rules.
Less overthinking, more doing loco things :) that’s where magic happens
and unique characters and concepts get developed.

Clients
Zurich Tourism, Tibits, Ikea, Vice Magazine, Google, Youtube Kids, LG, Lego, Hive Club
and my favourite client: The Gonzo Club in Zurich. I also work with several musicians,
like the swiss rapper Stress and the international artists The Ting Tings.

Awards
My work won several awards. I found it very funny, when my drawing of
a penis won Silver in the Art Directors club in Switzerland. höhö.
