Paul starts his communication design studies in Karlsruhe and benefits from poster designer Melk Imboden, advertising guru Michael Schirner, product design revolutionary Volker Albus, masters of graphic design Tania Prill, Laurent Lacour and Sven Völker, and art philosopher Wolfgang Ullrich. After an enormously productive internship at Karlssonwilker Inc. – mentored by design activist Jan Wilker – Paul graduates with his award winning show 'Absurd Diaglogs'. He starts his carreer with independent projects and teaches intermedia design basics in Trier. For two years he works as art director at trendsetting agency Meiré and Meiré in Cologne. There he works as independent art director, conceptionist, product designer and musician. His interdisciplinary approach is always challenging the status quo.

    Absurd Dialogs

    Fascinated by the way communication does work—most of the time it does not, though – Paul developed 17 interactive installations and objects. Every single installation takes the effort to start a dialog with an open end.

    LUDWIG GOES POP

    LUDWIG GOES POP – Museum Ludwig dedicates a large scale exhibition to it’s founder and unites 150 key works from one of the internationally most significant collections of American Pop-Art for the first time. Brief: Creation of a versatile visual identity that communicates the distinct profile of the exhibition, activating a target group beyond the well versed regulars by leveraging the mainstream appeal of Pop Art; design of campaign, exhibition architecture and catalogue. Idea/solution: In a reverse engineering process, the extraction of significant components of Pop Art leads to a specific design kit consisting of shapes, colors, patterns, text fragments, and behaviors. This serves as the base for the development of a unique visual meta-language, which enables sophisticated designs for a broad range of applications – always accessible and playful and popular in the truest sense of the word. Sweet dreams, baby!
