Who I am?
my name is Niklas Marienhagen and I am an Augsburg-based information designer. I speak fluently english and german. I am 24 years old and my origin town is Ratisbon, Bavaria. After finishing my A-Grades and a year at the »Akademie für Gestaltung Regensburg«, I decided to become a Graphic Designer and moved to Augsburg in order to start my studies. Since 2016, my main focus is information design.
What are my hobbies and activities?
My Hobbies and Activities are widespread: I enjoy cooking food at least as much as I do eating it, preferably with a good wine. Besides my culinary interest I am a highly interested in aesthetics in all of its forms: I love nice clothes, books, antiques, art. I love to draw and to take photographs. And of course I love beautiful landscapes and cities.
Why I am doing information design?
I am a pretty curious person with a widespread set of interests, what can be seen as a double-sided blade. One of the disadvantages is that I get bored fairly fast if I would just do the same thing over and over again. On the other side, these conditions make me a fast thinker and help me learn new things fast and effective.
Information design is one of the fields where I am constantly learning new things, both about the process of creating information design and the topics that I am researching, so this profession fits me perfectly. I currently enjoy the process of making graphics a lot, especially to observe how I am becoming better and faster with each project I make.
I will showcase my projects here at my website.
Hopefully you will have as much fun watching the results as I had creating them. In case you have any questions, feel free to get in touch via mail: niklas.marienhagen[at]web.de
