…Malte Knaack

Before starting out as a freelance illustrator I worked several years for Gruner & Jahr Wirtschaftsmedien as editorial designer and illustrator. I designed pages for Financial Times Deutschland and its supplement “enable”. For about two years I was responsible for the look of the weekly supplement Weekend. During this time many of my illustrations were published by Financial Times Deutschland and the economic magazines Capital and Business Punk. Since 2011 I am working as a freelance illustrator and designer for newspapers, magazines as well as for  advertising agencies and other companys.
My works have been awarded by the Society of News Design and the European Newspaper Award.
