Hello, I'm Waldemar.

 

I'm a nomadic creative, born in Kazakhstan, back in the days when it was the Soviet Union. I grew up in Germany but failed to become as serious as the Germans.

Since I can remember I've always been creating. While other kids played with toys, I'd imagine fantasy worlds and bring them to life with pen and paper. This passion led me to pursue graphic and web design from the age of 14.

Years later and after completing my education I left to work in various countries like England, Sweden, Japan and the US, creating communication solutions for brands such as Microsoft, Google, Nike, Coca-Cola and Infiniti. 

Besides countless adventures, these travels gave me a deeper understanding of cultural differences and a global perspective that I try to incorporate into my projects. I am very passionate about craft and I've been both an art director and a copywriter - yet what I enjoy most is the process of concept development and filling blank pages with ideas that scare me and others. I value a collaborative work environment where people provide constructive feedback and strive to create work they are proud of.

Currently I'm located in Hamburg, Germany and am available for freelance projects worldwide across all platforms.
