About me

I am a Swiss/UK illustrator und user-interface designer. I create engaging and insightful designs and illustrations for solutions across web and other interactive channels.

Create clarity

The world is cluttered with confusing content. I make sure your content is consistent, clear and accessible to your intended audience by communicating your ideas - however complex - in a simple, attractive way.

Make it personal

Your story is important. I help you tell it with creativity, colour, empathy and a pinch of humour.

Help conversion

I create an evocative and enduring image that my clients - and their clients - cherish. This can help convert interest into action.

About me

Drawing is in my blood: I grew up with a pencil in my hand, under the nurturing influence of my uncle, the celebrated Swiss artist Pater Eugen Bollin.

I trained in editorial design and narrative illustration and spent 25 years as a Creative Director in a media agency.

Now I create hardworking images that conquer customers’ hearts and drive conversion. User engagement is at the centre of every project.

Why use me?

Having worked as a Creative Director in a media agency, I developed a wealth of experience in driving user engagement. Focusing on user needs, I know the importance of engaging an audience.

I understand that you need someone, both creative and reliable, someone with business acumen. As a businesswoman, I appreciate the importance of your bottom line.

What I deliver

My digital illustrations and web designs are personal, memorable and unique.

I really care about details and quality output. 

I pride myself on developing relationships with clients that help me understand your business and your audience.
