There are specialists, there are allrounders, there are professionals – and then there is me.
I am an avid reader who enjoys not only the haptic of books but also their ›interior design‹. Ever since my earliest experiments with imaging techniques in my childhood, I have been training my aesthetic awareness in terms of photography, lettering, and all things in-between. I am not a trained graphics guru but a learned layouter. I hugely enjoy transforming texts into illustrated, printable products! Also, the people working with me and partaking in my artistic adventures have always been very pleased with the outcome.
There are those who call me an »all-purpose tool« for my combination of graphical skills with my erudite, academic knowledge and my delight in playful experiments. Then again – you know how people are ...

Conference Proceedings ›Alternative Eliten‹
published by the Gesellschaft der Freunde und Förderer des Fachbereichs Sozialökonomie (Universität Hamburg), 2015
›Racism Analysis‹ is a research series that explores racial discrimination in all its varying historical, ideological and cultural patterns.
It examines the invention of race, the dimensions of modern racism and inquires into racism avant la lettre. The series brings together scholars from various disciplines and schools of thoughts. A key aim is to contribute to the conceptualisations of racism and to identify practices of dehumanisation intrinsic to it.
While I am not responsible for the layout & typography of the Racism Analysis Studies ( besides, obviously, RAS 4 – my very own ›Consuming Whiteness‹ ) and the first of the Racism Analysis Yearbooks, it is definitely a series worth careful perusal.

Certainly a strong example is this website, carved out of HTML and CSS with my bare brains
but also my photo homepage, and my old homepage created with Typo3;
in terms of Content Management and Coding,
there used to be a Uni Hamburg homepage (WaybackMachine) which ran on Typo3 and which I significantly beautified and adjusted to the owner's desires,
the Wordpress website for the GdFF, which I have maintained from November 2015 through April 2019 and for which I have also done some conceptional work, and, the latest addition to my collection of supervised and maintained websites,
the website of the Gesellschaft für Australienstudien (GASt), the Association for Australian Studies in Germany, for which I provide conceptual work, content management, and maintenance.
