Design and Illustration
Hey, I’m Maxie
I am a certified communication designer and illustrator based in Germany with a focus on a sustainable, future-oriented world for all living beings.
So nice to meet you!
Here are some projects I was involved in.
A few were created during my time in the agency and publishing business.
Clients I have worked with over the last eight years.
Working with Maxie is always a pleasure. Not only does Maxie always deliver outstanding quality, but she also does it with absolute precision and at an insane speed. We especially appreciate her empathy and tact when dealing with our often delicate content.
Maxie doesn’t see us as a ‚mere‘ customer, she is fully behind our mission, and so she always takes ownership and proactively gets involved when she discovers opportunities for improvement.
We’re very happy to have her on our side, using her incredible skills to fight with us for a world, in which all animals will be respected and protected.

The cooperation with Maxie came through a recommendation and we approached her with a vague idea and all the more wishes.
Maxie has mastered the balancing act with us to create a superhero comic drawing, which is on the one hand to the point and on the other hand does not draw the depicted characters into ridicule, as comics tend to exaggerate.
She did a great job of working out the specific characteristics of our superheroes and gave us tips on what makes sense and what does not.
Without Maxie’s help, we would have hopelessly overloaded the drawing. Thank you, Maxie, for the excellent superhero drawing, your patience, and your appreciated advice. Anytime again!
Team Leader Global Sales,
Working with Maxie was fantastic from the first preliminary meeting to the finished artwork!
With a lot of empathy, she visualized and graphically developed our ideas perfectly in a very short time. She masterfully picked up on the style direction we gave her – which is rather untypical for her portfolio.
Especially considering the fact that we had to hire Maxie at very short notice, we are more than thrilled with the work she did. We are already looking forward to the next joint project!
Photographer & Designer
Here you will find a short summary of the process and my approach.
1. Initial Meeting
Whether you already have an established business, are just starting on your own,
or are looking for a creative gift for your loved ones.
The initial meeting is all about figuring out what you need and what your ideas are. We get to know each other and discuss your plans, goals, and framework conditions for our collaboration.
2. Offer letter
Clear communication and continuous transparency are key to any successful partnership. Therefore, based on our conversation, you will receive an offer letter that summarizes all the main points about your project to prevent misunderstandings.
If you have any questions, comments, or additions, please feel free to contact me at any time.
You’ve signed the offer and sent it back to me? Great – now we can start!
Depending on the project, you will first receive a rough draft, on which we will discuss whether it visually goes in the right direction or if adjustments need to be made.
Once you approved the draft, we go into the final design of your project. During the correction loops, we make the fine adjustments in close coordination, so that everything corresponds to your wishes down to the last detail.
There it is, the finished solution for your project. Depending on your request, you’ll get a packaged folder with different file formats for various uses within your project, plus all the relevant information.
With a great deal of calmness and dedication, we received smart branding advice from Maxie, which goes beyond a classic logo design.
We are infinitely grateful for her diplomatic tenacity and her holistic approach to our vision.
She has managed to perfectly underline the character of our start-up.

Our realization: Only possible with Maxie!
In Maxie, we have found a wonderful artist, who not only implements our ideas flawlessly and magnificently but also inspires our work and enriches it as a human being.
We are looking forward to many more projects and are proud to work with Maxie.

Maxie lives up to her name – she is a pearl among graphic designers. Maxie got into the theme super quickly, and I didn’t need a proof loop from the first draft.
She lovingly created the graphics in great detail. She was always on time and implemented a few change requests right away as well. All designs were one hundred percent on target and far exceeded my expectations.
I couldn’t have imagined a better graphic designer for my project. Whoever works with Maxie can consider themselves lucky and know what they are getting.
