Chris is a designer and writer, she develops ideas with text and expresses them in letterforms.
Chris specialises in lettering because she loves language and letterforms equally and couldn’t make up her mind between writing and designing. Working at the intersection of text and image, art and design, Chris creates experimental lettering that is both expressive and thoughtful. Her guiding question: „Does it have to be this way?“
For clients she designs book covers, illustrations, logos and murals and she is happy to be one of the chosen few who design stamps for the Federal Republic of Germany.
After studying Illustration in Hamburg and Paris, Chris was a Fulbright Scholar in the U.S. and got her M.A. in Visual and Critical Studies from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. She wrote several books on letter design and shares her knowledge in workshops and as a speaker.
