As a trained media designer for digital and print, it is my passion to accompany the path from the blank sheet of paper to the marketable product and seeing my own ideas in a finished product

Hi, my name is Christopher Winker, I am 34 years old and have been working as a trained media designer for digital and print for over 12 years.

I was able to gain a lot of different experiences and expanding my knowledge comprehensively through continuous and independent training. My creativity and quick comprehension, as well as my very good handling of typography, graphic design and photography, together with an artistic-aesthetic understanding, as well as a very good and safe handling of the common graphic programs such as Adobe Indesign, Illustrator and Photoshop, were always an advantage in my work.

In addition to my high level of motivation, my personal strengths also include punctuality, reliability and resilience. My willingness to learn and to perform, as well as to quickly and thoroughly familiarize myself with the new field of work, are a matter of course for me.

Timeline:

I have been working as a media designer for over twelve years and have therefore been able to gain a wide range of experience and expand my knowledge extensively

Since 1999

That's how it all started ...
with an artwork to present my music,
not only for the ears, but also for the eyes to the outside.

In year 2000

The first own website went online
I discovered the Internet very early on and saw a lot of potential to let off steam creatively in this medium.

September 2004

First step towards becoming a professional
The first step began at the vocational college in the specialization "Communication and Design", followed by the professional school.

End of summer 2007

Training as a media designer
I love the format magazine and started my apprenticeship at Huber-Verlag in the field of graphic design in advertising graphics.

From 2009

Supervision of projects
Within the circle of friends and family I started to implement and supervise various projects, whether print or digital.

Beginning of 2011

First project as an art editor
After I successfully relaunched the Tattoo Style, I was entrusted with the layout of Reise Motorrad Magazin.

Mid of 2014

First own magazine
The Roadster magazine followed and the task of making it modern and simple, with a balanced image / text contrast.

From 2018

Reinvent yourself
I’m always looking for something new, whether it's work, creativity or design.
It has to be simple and clean.
