Julian Hölscher’s work emerges from the interplay between the fields of technology and audiovisual communication. Since 2012 he has been working as a freelance artistic director and designer. Thus, he develops concepts for media installations around the globe and creates precise corporate design applications – always with a keen sense for the respective context. His competence lies in determining the core of a matter and translating it into a visual appearance. The award-winning projects are often accomplished together with his network of partners and interdisciplinary professionals.
His craft is the art of storytelling. These narratives consist of time, space, object, sound and images, which are woven into a dramaturgy or decoded into a visual identity.
