visual stories with a wink

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

How you doin’?

My name is Moritz Winkels, 28 years old and I’m currently working as an Art Director at Überground in Hamburg.

“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? Aren’t you an Art Director now?”

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!
