Sandra Man is an artist working in live performance, video and writing. I designed her homepage considering “the audience” can have a sense of autonomy within her digital space.
In her performances, things happen simultaneously. The navigation follows this idea and the underlining “everything is connected” thread that goes through all of her work.
In an effort to maintain ties with my home country, I had the opportunity to design the brand identity for a small business in agriculture and food production.
They're committed to minimizing waste, so I created a versatile motif featuring cheerful, mix-and-match fruit illustrations. Using stickers allowed multiple variations while keeping affordable production costs, which was essential for them as a starting business.

Die Zusammenarbeit mit Cristina kann man sich nicht besser vorstellen: Zugleich kooperativ und eigenständig ist sie auf meine Bedürfnisse eingegangen und hat dafür die perfekten Lösungen gefunden. Ihre kreativen Vorschläge kamen aus der intensiven Beschäftigung mit meiner Arbeit, die sie auf beeindruckend schlüssige Weise für das Design interpretiert hat. Daraus ist eine in sich stimmige Darstellung nicht nur meiner Einzelprojekte, sondern des Gesamtcharakters meiner Arbeit entstanden. Ich habe Cristinas Arbeitsweise als schnell, organisiert, genau und zuverlässig empfunden.
We’ve been working together for more than 5 years now, shooting from big clients(Commerzbank) to personal projects. It’s always inspiring, professional and pleasant to have Cristina direct and organise photo shoots.
We loved working with Cristina! We needed help with the title and credits design for our performance movie. Overall she was very easy going, professional and careful to our needs. Cristina jumped in fast in the project, after we had to cancel with another designer. She offered us a few versions, we also had enough time for corrections. The communication was pleasant and friendly. The resulting design was very good!
Cristina´s Arbeit ist einzigartig. Sie griff meine vagen Ideen behutsam auf und verwandelte sie gekonnt in feines minimalistisches Grafikdesign, wie ich es mir nicht hätte besser vorstellen können. Es entstanden Logo, Visitenkarten, eine Kollektionsbroschüre und Produktkarten für mein frisch gegründetes Ledertaschen-Brand. Cristina hat sowohl einen passioniertes Auge für die feinen Details, als auch den Blick fürs große Ganze. Ich kann sie nur weiterempfehlen.
Cristina is a great designer with broad skillset coming from analog printing to interest in swiss design over contemporary typography ending and illustration at niche mobile patterns. She always sees problem critically, but can easily offer a variety of solutions and choose the relevant one. She likes to experiment and learn new things, but is also able to sit down and deliver quality. Also her design feedback was always very very very helpful. Always happy to work with Cristina.
