Hello! I am Jan Kristofer Wagner (b. 1986) a German multidisciplinary designer currently living in Amsterdam Berlin. Grown up near Würzburg, I spent there a lot of time with skateboarding and drawing letters. Later, my bachelor study at RheinMain University in Wiesbaden gave me a solid background in all different kinds of media with focus on media conception and design.

Driven by my fascination for letterforms and sound, I joined in the interdiscilpinary master's program at Offenburg University and delved deep into the field of communication design; printed on paper or audiovisual on a screen. After graduation, I gathered international experience while I lived and worked in Amsterdam for one year. Now I am specialized in Art Direction, Visual Systems, Editorial and Web Design, Berlin-based and available for new challenging projects. 

Besides my passion for Editorial Design, I am addicted to sneakers, skateboarding and always up for sharing thoughts about new AeroPress recipies or my latest vinyl pickups from Hardwax.
