visual stories with a wink

Wow...this is a pretty cool+sexy guy!

How you doin’?

My name is Moritz Winkels, 27 years old and I just completed my second bachelor’s degree in Sustainable Design in Cologne, Germany.

“But Mo, what would you call yourself? A graphic designer or an illustrator? And aren’t you creating those comics? Oh and what’s this movie you did a few months ago?”

Well, I’d call myself a storyteller. A visual storyteller. Who loves to create messages through a combination of graphic design and mostly illustration. Always with a little wink in it. Get it? wink…winkels…genius!
