Hello! Nice of you to be here!
As you probably found out, I am Jonas, a creative all-rounder exploring where digital meets haptic and story meets play.
After starting out focused on photography, I quickly moved to illustration, then to animation. I had the great chance to design some spatial installations and exhibitions, but in the end I returned to my great love: characters and stories.
From there one the step to interactive stories was quite obvious, so my bachelor thesis as well as my master studies were dedicated to playfulness: meaningfull experiences virtual words.
Soon I moved to Copenhagen where I researched play: Digital games, Virtual Reality and apps that augment the world around the user. During this time I also worked as game designer and creative director in small indie projects and game jams, experimenting with games, serious games and non-games.
After returning to Germany my path lead me to Lightword Productions where I filled the roles of both game designer and lead character artist. Then I switched to medical animation and reshaping the future of medical education: Anima Res
There my position is creative director with focus on producing, conceptual design and art direction. If you want to get in contact, collaborate or give me feedback, please get in touch!
