Antipodean based (Berlin, GER and Hobart, AUS), award winning designer Nadine Kessler studied Visual Communication in Basel, Switzerland and Rhode Island (RISD), USA. She has taught Advanced Typography at the University of Tasmania and worked as a designer, creative director and educator for over 15 years in Germany, Switzerland and Australia. Her clients include cultural organisations, museums and NGOs, educational institutions, Universities, publishers as well as design focused businesses.


To Nadine effective design requires a holistic approach and is very much about relationships. Together with the client, author, artist, designer, curator, etc. she develops high-quality design solutions. Starting with listening and defining the problem, followed by research based concept development, Nadine‘s designs, elegantly resolved, carry multiple complex layers, consider historical and cultural context and result in a unique product that communicates on several levels with the audience.
