Anne Albert

Anne Albert has always had the urge to express herself artistically. Her love for illustration she found during her studies at the Bauhaus University in Weimar: "I noticed pretty quickly that I enjoy communicating ideas, concepts and stories in pictures and I find the challenge of how to get to the point visually very exciting.” She started designing book covers, which entails precisely this challenge: You capture a story and its mood in a single image, and add value to the whole thing with your very own imagery. The first jobs came during her studies and Anne started a creative working life as a freelance illustrator.

"How to speak with pictures" - this is what has always fascinated Anne about illustration. "I didn't get there in the classic way through drawing, but rather through communication. I could have also become a writer.” She is interested in formal language and abstraction. How do I get things straight? How do I concentrate on the essentials? “Illustration has an incredibly wide spectrum, just like spoken language. And there are so many different approaches that illustrators can argue about what's good and what's not. I don't see illustration as pure illustration, but as a very special means of communication."

Anne gets her inspiration from everyday life, from stories or music and from contact with other creative people.

She really likes to draw women. As objects, she is particularly interested in bodies and plants, and she prefers to address everyday situations in her motifs. “My areas of focus are empowerment of women, mental health and sustainability. But I also love the challenge of implementing a wide range of topics in an exciting and precise manner. With my illustrations, I want to draw attention to and sensitize important topics. And I like it when viewers find themselves in my pictures and feel picked up by their feelings.”

Her striking motifs and characters are used in many formats: from colorful flat illustrations for editorials on topics such as sport or sustainability, to geometric logos and icons, to playful gifs, murals or packaging designs.

An exciting project for Anne was the implementation of the corporate illustrations for ListNRide, a worldwide private bicycle rental company. "I love cycling, I ride my bike every day. That's why I had a lot of fun dealing with the topic and finding ideas for pictures!"

She is particularly proud of her own screen print project »Dancing With Myself«, which focuses on the joy of dancing - an important thing for Anne, since dancing in the kitchen has helped her through the pandemic period! "Others saw it the same way. The series is selling quite well. I like to implement free projects to try out new techniques, to realize my own ideas and to show what else I can do!”

In the future, Anne would like to use new media with her illustrations that she has not yet designed: record covers, tapestries, ceramics - or large house walls! Customers who give her a lot of leeway and let her try something new are welcome! :)

In addition, she spends every free minute on the topic of motion design in order to bring her pictures into motion with more animation.
