Atelier Hannes Helmke

For the artist Hannes Helmke I coded a unique responsive website from scratch. The subtle animations delight and help to navigate, while the large images draw the viewer to the art. For the gallery Osper in Cologne, I designed a 120-page art book about his sculptures, in addition to four smaller publications, which can also be browsed through on the website.

Tischler Meschede

After forming the visual identity, including a logomark and custom icons, I built a single page site for carpenter Sebastian Meschede. To highlight the details and quality of the furniture, I chose to photograph his work myself. These photos are shown in a contemporary stacked gallery and the whole site was optimized and boosted through various platforms for local SEO.

Sven Lützenkirchen — DoP

The director of photography was looking for a minimalist custom one-pager that would show his work in motion rather than in still images. The background colors smoothly adapt to suit the corresponding work, which is opened in an auto-playing full-width overlay. His Instagram feed at the bottom is filtered by a custom hashtag to show only the work-related posts.

Pflege zu Hause

The home care nursing institution approached me to build their new website. In addition, I created nine icons to visually explain their services and a small illustration for each of their three locations. The original logo concept needed to be elaborated and extended by a robust visual style-guide. Based on which I designed an info leaflet, business cards, stamps, and stationery.

Salon Schmitz

Back in 2014 Rajko Majstorovic and I built the website for Cologne’s hotspot Café Schmitz. It is based on the popular CMS Wordpress to allow for easy modification on the client site. The illustration explains the numerous locations and the custom maps offer additional navigation. A chance to update and enhance the website as well as its codebase would be amazing.

About

I’m Thilko a digital designer originally from Eastern Friesland and now based in Cologne again. Before running my studio there from early 2017 till late 2018, I studied design in Paris, Stockholm and of course Cologne. While in university I first focused on motion graphics as well as virtual reality experiences. During that time I also discovered my passion for digital products and the experiences they enable. As an interdisciplinary freelancer, I then strengthened my graphic and web design skills. Now, I am part of sipgate working on the future of communication in Düsseldorf.
