My name is Melanie Kreiss. I am an illustrator, motion and graphic designer based in Augsburg, Germany. My work evolved out of a tradition of collage art and printmaking using techniques like paper cutting, woodcut and screenprint. I enjoy working digitally as well as experimenting with distressed effects made by hand. I aim to create something refreshingly modern with a unique hand-crafted feel.
During my studies at the University of Applied Sciences, Augsburg (1999-2004) I started to transfer this hand-made print style into motion design and created short films. Since 2005 I made several animation films for Arte Karambolage, a broadcast that was influencing the style of many others. Besides I was working as an employee graphic designer for a Paper manufacturer (UPM) creating the whole bandwidth of Corporate Design products (2005-2015). Since 2016 I work for different clients as an illustrator, motion and graphic designer. My work is published in magazines like the Globetrotter Magazin, Jetzt.de and Arte Karambolage.
