ABOUT SIEGWEG24

Siegweg24 is a testing platform, made for learning how to build certain effects and styles by using html and css, it is done by me and not by professional coding artists. So please excuse me to have not good design, and no good code here. I am a designer more than a html artist. I am producing this code by using a text editor. If you want to see design samples, have a look at the portfolio page. This site will change often.

I am an award-winning professional in online (Milia d'Or; Web d'Or; Europrix; Best of global site deign – mediamatic; Corporate Design Preis / Gold, EuropeanGraphicDesign), marketing mechanics and design. Worked as Creative Director for the Kunst- und Ausstellungshalle der Bundesrepublik Deutschland (the biggest european location for art and exhibitions), together with the Research Studios of Neville Brody (I learned a lot). End of the nineties accepted a contract for Lava, Hamburg, and iXL, one of the biggest internet design networks worldwide as Creative Director, Europe. After some other engagements, for public relations agencies, consulting agencies and other branches, today exclusively work for a worldwide operating biotech company as Creative Director.

and additional studies in psychology, mathematics, educational science

With all collected experience in (international) marketing, design, and corporate branding, for Wrangler, Sarah Lee, Galeria Kaufhof, Toyota, and others, I am also engaged in projects for a kindergarden, and in research in social media. In those fields I managed projects from concept to completion, trying to expand my knowledge in marketing mechanics, (website) design and development.

Competencies

Processes are the center of my interest. Nothing we design can be planned without the process it accompanies: How is it forwarded, where does it have to interact, how much time is available for it.

MARKETING I

Basic Knowledge about marketing and its mechanics is required to complete a design task. It is not a question of beauty. Design is not art.

MARKETING II

The complete planning of channels and functions has to be ready before tactical activities start. Social media, online communities are the actual factors we have a lot to learn about. A bad product will never be brought to success by good marketing.

WERBUNG, ADVERTISEMENT, PROMOTION

If function has to be cleared, a measurable result is expected. To bring clients to a website. To let them read an offer. To convince them to change behavior. It is a part. It is never the whole story.

PRODUCTION AND PRODUCT MANAGEMENT

Technical production is important, but it is a part. The understanding of the complete mechanical chain, in which the advertising product's lifecycle is to be organized is much longer: Are there accompanying factors, what happens in best case, what happens in worst case, can I trace success, when is everything delivered. Design is a process in a process.

Work Areas

My work: Marketing mechanics and marketing communication, information architecture and online design, corporate branding, advertising, graphic design, usability improvement and consulting. All my creative work achieves efficient solutions to meet both - print and internet requirements as much as business or communicational goals.

ONLINE, OFFLINE MARKETING

Experienced in marketing mechanics and marketing communication. Wiki says: Marketing is the process by which companies determine what products or services may be of interest to customers, and the strategy to use in sales, communications and business development. It is an integrated process through which companies create value for customers and build strong customer relationships in order to capture value from customers in return. Marketing is used to identify the customer, to keep the customer, and to satisfy the customer.

CREATIVE GRAPHIC, WEB & LOGO DESIGN

Branding is sometimes accompanied by logo design. Yes, there is a connection, but logo design is one of the most functionally limited illustration disciplines.

WEBDESIGN, INFORMATION ARCHITECTURE

Webdesign is of much higher complexity from functional point of view, technically it is sometimes easier than print design. Very common misunderstanding and confusion is about the differentiation between information architecture, webdesign, html coding and programming, database programming and online marketing. I do not know one single person who is able to do this all.

EDITORIAL DESIGN, WRITING

Design and Text should try to be a weightless compound. Both need strong attention, and the conjunction of both does too.

PRODUCTION MANAGEMENT

The complete production chain includes professionals like media artists, programmers, html coders, preprint artists, photographers, usability experts. The management of those ressources and the precise weaving in the process is key part of the creative design process.

Design by cutting edges
For a consulting company in Cologne a logo has been developed and produced which consists of ... nothing? The initials ZK of the owner were the inspirational base for a logo development process which ended in cutting out forms of paper.
