Julian Hölscher’s work emerges from the interplay between the fields of technology and audiovisual communication. He started his professional career in a design agency. After graduating his diploma in design, at the University of the Arts Bremen, he continued his work as a freelance graphic and motion designer. In 2012 Julian also joined the artists’ collective URBANSCREEN as an art director. He currently develops concepts for cross-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.
Julian Hölscher draws from years of experience in object-, graphic-, and motion-design while always remaining curious to find new contemporary aesthetics. His craft is the art of storytelling. These narratives consist of time, sound and images that are woven into a dramaturgy or decoded into a visual identity.
