Klaas van Kreis is a young communication designer from Germany, and he is a typo-, fashion- & film-aficionado.
His work is about singing the praises of the dark side. He explores the abysses of the human soul and brings together desire and angst, merging ideas of power and elegance to form imaginative, devious and intriguing designs. Inspired by manipulation in all its diverse shades – from con-artists to casanovas to psychopaths – he creates highly aesthetic works that unsettle and menace the audience.
His work varies in medium, from illustration and photography to animation. It is characterised by an analytical approach in the beginning and a strong sense of form, space and colour at the end of the process. He has an eye for detail and a belief that the initial idea is the key to create an effective design solution.
He is committed to create visually appealing designs with dark undertones, a healthy measure of fun and a shroud of secrecy.
