Throughout the last few semesters I designed various small sets of retro/pixel
For a project about Susan Kare, I expanded the set of original icons she designed for Apple so that I could
rebuild the iPhone's user interface in the style of the 1984 Macintosh.
While working on the project I grew very fond of the fun and the challenges one encounters
while trying to evoke the image of let's say a rolodex in a 32 by 32 pixel grid.
TLDR: I really like Susan Kare's work for Apple.
Some friends from the Industrial Design department at »Muthesius Academy of Fine Arts
and Design« were preparing a presentation event to give the students and professorate
a chance to offer each other better insights into their lifes and their thoughts on design. To announce and document said event, a friend of mine
built a minisite, reminiscent of 90ies corporate operating systems.
My part in the equation was to design the desktop icons, frames of the program windows and also
some 3D pixel letters.

TLDR: Iconset for a minisite that was supposed to look like a 90ies operating system.
For 2018's »EINBLICK AUSBLICK«, the anual exhibition of the »Muthesius Academy of Fine Arts
and Design«, some students were looking for ways to produce shirts that represented the art school and its
students. I took the opportunity to design another set of pixel icons, portraying some of the
objects that students interact with on a daily basis. The icons may at first seem mundane but they do in fact contribute to
make the art school the special place it is.
The team ended up laser-cutting some stencils, some with my icons, some with other contributions
to the project. They were then used to spray paint dozens of custom shirts at the exhibition.

TLDR: I designed some icons that represent mundane objects at my art school and that were spray painted on shirts.
