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.

We innovate mobility

I coincidentally discovered a catalouge from the company "blickle" that presented their product range of wheels on a total of 348 pages. I cut out every single picture of a wheel shown in the catalogue and thereby left it with text only. I then glued the wheels on top of different posters, that I found or purchased. They're always covering the main objects in the posters.
For me this work is about the juxtaposition of removing content and creating something new at the same time. It's about the constant movement of innovation.
