Gary & Claire

When technology finally caught up to our imagination and the devices in our pockets where able to fuse the real world with the digital we knew we had to experiment with it.

Meet Gary & Claire. This heartwarming interactive story, that takes place in a colorful, exotic forest, is a merge of a linear film and an interactive game where the user can actively participate. So go ahead download the App to help Claire with her exhilarating task of saving Gary.

The beauty of animation is that everything is possible if you can think of it.

PITCH

Don't just present – Pitch.

A Mantra all successful start-ups share.

Berlin based start-up Pitch seeks to improve the way we pitch our ideas to make them reality.

It was love at the first pitch when they approached us to collaborate on creating a beautiful animation highlighting their product for their official launch. So we carved out our geometric shapes, polished our glass slides and threw some bold colors into the mix. The result is a mesmerizing journey that answers the question of how to pitch an idea.

I love how simple, geometric abstractions are able to explain complex concepts in an elegant and intuitive way.

HELFENDE

HAND

I had the pleasure to co-direct the animations for the Helping Hands Award with my friend and colleague Saskia Kretzschmann

 

Every year the BMvI in Germany is honoring volunteers all over Germany with an Award Ceremony.

 

To highlight how each nominee is helping their communities we carved these tactile worlds out of digital wood, where the volunteers are the main characters.

MICROSOFT

Microsoft was looking for an outside perspective on one of their digital products and its messaging. 

Together with Microsoft I designed and developed a visual language that emphasizes the human aspect of the Microsoft ToDo app.

With this system in place we told different stories from the users perspective and how Microsofts products fit in their lifes.

DESIGN

While I do enjoy enabling teams of artists to create outstanding work I also like to design things, characters and places. 

I do enjoy that every project starts as a blank canvas waiting to be filled with colourful shapes.

Every frame begins as a creative dialouge between me and other artists and clients and evolves into something unique through collaboration.

me: So anyways, I was thinking about AR.

Hi, my name is Christian and I help brands to apply narrative design and animation to draw attention and frame conversations. 

 

I am a Berlin based designer and creative director using technology to make the world a little bit more colourful.

 

My primary interest is understanding things, places and people. On my journey for knowledge I am always keen on experimenting with new technologies and finding out how to make them do things.
