Kristina Wiessner portrait profile by Patrice van Malder
© Patrice van Malder

I am a graduate GRAPHIC DESIGNER & ILLUSTRATOR with German roots. After 12 years living and working in Paris I am now based in Dusseldorf. Working as a freelance, I have realized, among others, visual identities, websites and many illustrations - including several seasons for Le Coq Sportif of the company Descente Ltd. (Japan).

Since 2017, I am working regularly for the Château de Menthon on Lake Annecy, having created: logo, website, flyers, posters, 2 books (44 and 64 pages), coloring book for children, packaging and labels for the products of the castle's store ...
Also since 2017 I am working for renowned plastic surgeon Dr. Eric Auclair in Paris, having created his logo, brochures, medical illustrations and website design.

Since 2015 I am working in collaboration with Patrice van Malder, fashion photographer in Paris (Madame Figaro, Paris Match, L'Officiel Italia, Harper's Bazaar Kazakhstan...), assisting him during the shootings and doing the post-production in teamwork. In addition, I illustrate some of his photos that particularly inspire me, reinforcing their expressiveness (e.g. Monica Bellucci, Eva Herzigova, Olga Kurylenko).

Being passionate about the diversity of my work, it is a pleasure for me to share my creative enthusiasm with my clients.
