Hi and moin!
I am Verena, a Hamburg based freelance motion designer and illustrator specialized in digital 2D techniques. 
I love to create flat vector illustrations or to draw on my beloved graphic tablet. It's always fun to animate my illustrations afterwards and bring them to life. Of course I also animate graphics of other artists. :) 
You can book me for any kind of illustration (print, film, web,...) and digital 2D animation (including storyboarding). Let's work together!
