Tanja Lemke-Mahdavi Profile

As a passionate designer with 25 years of experience, I develop differentiated communication solutions for companies and organisations that are clear, authentic and grow sustainably.

Communication design requires a whole series of processes. Until a reliable realisation, well-founded research, strategic planning and imaginative visualisations go hand in hand. Together with my clients I analyse and conceive goals and values and create lively and self-confident identities. The developed concepts are translated into any media.

Strategic consulting, analysis, conception, branding, realisation and project management in print and web design. Especially in the fields of corporate identity, web design, editorial design, brochures, information design, orientation systems, exhibition and conference design.

I attach great importance to the diversity of my areas of responsibility and clients, as my work feeds on constantly dealing with the most diverse contents. I work with national and international organisations, institutions and companies from the fields of culture, business and science. My location is Berlin, but the rest of the world is very close to me.

Depending on the task at hand and the scope of the projects, I put together teams. For years I have been working in a network of professional copywriters, programmers, designers, product designers and trade fair constructors.

SI studied visual communication in London at the Ravensbourne College and in Germany at the FH Schwäbisch Gmünd. After my first professional experiences in London and Milan I returned to Berlin and worked as a freelancer for various agencies such as “Plex” and “Publicis”. I specialised in corporate design and typography and started my own business in 2000.

I now think digitally, although I haven’t forgotten my starting point as a graphic artist. Many of my projects are about connecting the past and the future – appreciating and understanding the past to create the new.
