My name is Johannes Kempe. I´m a 28-year-old Graphic Designer from Hamburg, Germany. I graduated with award in March 2011. Thereafter, I worked as a freelance designer and later, permanently, as the Art Director for the digital agency shift. Since summer 2016, I am again working independently, with an office space in the shared co-working space Geschoss. I love to work experimentally and to connect real models to the digital world, preserving their natural and authentic character.

Experiments

Making things with my hands is a passion of mine. That process is always surprising to me. Out of that the best ideas are generated, and it presents a new perspective on things. I have been crafting with plastic since I have earned my degree in 2011, and this project "love your plastic" is a recurring part of my life.
