My name is Simon Schmalhorst. I am a 25-year-old graphic designer based in Berlin, Germany. Since 2014 I study communication design at Hochschule Darmstadt. Besides my focus on developing graphic design products such as books, posters and websites, I also have a strong interest in conceptual art and photography. In 2018 I did a 5-month internship at the studio of Daniel Wiesmann in Berlin. Later that year I studied at the Art Academy of Latvia in Riga for one semester.

Feel free to me for any further information or work requests.

This is a photo-series about gambling locations. Its about the colourful illusions these places create and the separate world they seem to exist in. In this world it’s not your own effort, work or strength, that shape your future but coincidence and luck. (work in progress)
