Around 2004-2005 i was asked if i could do some graphics for WeberHaus one of Germany’s leading home builders of off-site manufactured houses. In 2017 alone they produced some 750 houses for the european market with an annual turnover of 250 million Euro.

This one was a very valuable lesson but at the same time also challenging even though the task at first looked quite simple.
They aked me for a cube and stairs to reflect their different house design categories and expansion packages. So what could be so difficult about that?

Well, well i jumepd into this alone and head first without any major experience in commercial product design let alone working together with another design bureau and on top of that on a tight timetable.

I was used to work in a team from other projects before but that was nothing in comparison to this.

Most valuable lesson learned from this project: good communication and version controle is key.
At this point i have to praise the people at WeberHaus and the other design bureau (sorry don’t remember their name) who were responsible for the layout but the communication was perfect.

This way i was able to make countless of drafts in a very short time (some of the you will find in the gallery).

Looking at this project today i would do a few things differently, the stair for example would need some love and extra time but back then i was quite happy with the result even more so since this 2 elements i made appeared in many of their product pages later on.
So not bad for a first time.


Art is never finished, only abandoned.”
Looking back at all the projects i worked on over the years this may be the best fitting description. At some point you just make the decision that you are done with a project but not because it is finished but because of the feeling that it is good enough for that very moment.
