Originally from Germany, Astrid has lived on the West Coast of Canada for more than 15 years. After finishing a degree in English, French and Business at a German university, she transferred to Simon Fraser University in Vancouver and graduated with a degree in Communications and Fine Arts.
It was during her time at SFU that she gained experience in photography, learned darkroom techniques and gained Graphic Design skills. She has always loved art and after her degree she wanted to get more savvy on the computer and expand her range of skills. Therefore, she took a ten months intense New Media program at the Vancouver Film School. Immersed in a creative environment, she learned how to code websites from scratch as well as 3D animation, video editing etc.
It was a fast paced and very creative environment that gave her the foundation for her work. After graduation, she was employed as a webmaster in Vancouver where she learned to apply her skills to real life projects. For more than 15 years she has been working as a freelance designer, often collaborating with programmers and SEO specialists on a per project basis.
