Biography

Max was born in rural Germany in 1989 and started out illustrating extensive album artworks for punk and metal bands after doing his homework. After graduating from the Graphic Design department at Hochschule Darmstadt in 2017, he began working as a freelancer with renowned clients like The New Yorker, The New York Times, Adidas and Google. He still enjoys creating artwork for bands.

Influenced by the classic surrealists as well as retro science-fiction book covers, he likes to look below the surface of one-to-one visual translations, adding meaning and room for inference by wrapping his illustrations in the dense atmosphere of a surreal and melancholic parallel universe. His urge is to translate and decipher what can only be felt, not directly seen, and to amplify this visually, particularly in his personal work.

Max has worked with clients such as: The New Yorker , The New York Times , Google, GLOBE Brand, Future Islands, Bloomberg Businessweek, Folio Society, Atreyu, GQ Magazine, WirtschaftsWoche, DIE ZEIT, Adidas, Bandcamp, Medium, Cicero, The Economist, Variety, Wall Street Journal, The Hollywood Reporter, and The Shrine.
