Marcel holds a bachelor's degree in Communication Design from the UE in Berlin and now works as a digital editorial designer for the international agency Edenspiekermann. As an all-round talent, he is so successful in his profession because he knows all the facets of design thanks to his studies. He not only develops digital concepts for traditional print media and newspapers, but also takes care of everything, from stickers to photography that is incidentally produced in his agency. In his spare time, he also designs and manufactures his own designer furniture.
Marcel says he wants to inspire more young people to start studying communication design. What makes a good designer? "The important thing is to listen well, understand quickly and identify problems. Anyone who is enthusiastic about design and above all, has a lot of openness, has a good chance of making it far. The prerequisite, of course, is that you also understand your craft."
If you can imagine studying design, he recommends the trial course: "The UE offers a lot and with a bit of initiative you can become anything you want. In addition, the international orientation is a real advantage, because that's how the industry ticks.
