Philipp Nottelmann


Designer, Thinker, Maker & Science Enthusiast



Philipp is a freelance Designer, running his own studio in North Germany's beautiful port city of Hamburg. His career started at the award-winning agency Hi-ReS! and took him into several creative fields of the industry.

He gained knowledge about Animation, Photography and Film at the Post Production Optix, developed digital campaigns and applications at deepblue networks and eventually learned the essence of classic advertising at Jung von Matt in Beijing, China. After coming back from China with a new global perspective Philipp decided to start a business on his own and to offer his skills to brands, creative agencies as well as local businesses.


Over the recent years, he worked with a diverse range of clients like Mercedes-Benz, Smart, Jägermeister, Tuborg, Migros and Swatch. Philipp is a Conceptual Designer and loves interdisciplinary working, learning new skills and to network. He always tries to challenge the status quo and his work is best described as transforming ideas and values into visual identity.
