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.


Art Direction
Digital Branding
Corporate Design

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.
