Who we are

A small creative design studio for design, strategy and branding.
 We believe in design which not only enhances the surface, but also makes attitude and aspirations visible. Comprehensible rationale is just as important to us as elements which are aesthetically and emotionally substantiated. Our solutions are defined by clear, relevant design which creates added value for the client and leaves a lasting impression on the viewer. UMSINN stands for creativity, entrepreneurial understanding and innovative design combined with the kind of quality that comes from expertise. We boast several years’ experience working for leading design studios and agencies in Germany, Austria and USA. Supported by a network of artists, illustrators, photographers, authors, architects and production specialists, we work in various areas of visual communication.
