I am Jacob.

Portrait Jacob Guse Art Direction & Graphic Design 1

I am Jacob.

A year ago I worked for a strawberry farm near Rostock: Karls is one of the biggest strawberry manufacturer in Germany – the apple among the strawberrys.

In this time I learned a lot about how to create a strong brand, to communicate clear and understandable – Storytelling was one of the key elements we worked daily with – and of cause: to work in a fast pace to meet deadlines.

But over the years, my desire to travel the outdoors evolved as well as a dream: to be a freelance designer to combine my passion with my profession.

Today I help people and brands to create and communicate outdoor adventures and sustainable projects – to inspire people more to go out and to be active.

I am no magician,
I am a maker.

It‘s my job to help you communicate visual authentic so you reach your targeted audience and therefore become more successful.

I spend years not only to understand my design craftmanship but also the processes before and after me: I had insights in marketing and the development of concepts, learned about print production, crafted signs, banner and foils by myself and worked together with manufacturers and producers.

These skills make the difference when it comes to stand out from competitors.

I could work with incredible clients.

The recent years I‘ve had the honor to help grow some great projects and brands just with good and functional design.

Every single one had its uniqe story. But the root of my work remained the same: to understand and achieve my clients goals the best way.

To give you a thorough insight in my work I showcase here a selecten of these former projects, also a few of my own. If you too have a story to tell, feel free to contact me.

I am so satisfied with Jacob. He knows how to transform nothing or confused ideas into a good design. With Jacob and Thomas together we are an awesome team!

Torsten Dunkelmann | Sport Event Organizer at Dein Ostseeweg

Are you looking for someone who realizes your projects well-founded, with an eye for details and the courage to innovate? Then Jacob it is. He’s not only the pixel mover and mouse shaker, he also is idea generator and inspirational initiator.
His works never seem like pure advertising, rather like a little journey of discovery in which the explorer here and there encounters humor, creativity and emotions. His skills range from product design and development over package design to storytelling and further.

Nicole Schwichtenberg | Buyer & former colleague at Karls

The cooperation with Jacob is easy to explain: He understood which design fits best our requirements and designed this very appealingly. Agreements were goal and solution oriented, short and to the point. Ultimately, I am pleased to see the result live – The design convinces already.

Oscar Schröder | CEO & Founder of Digitack GmbH

Well recommend! Because I had only vague ideas about my logo, Jacob’s plenty proposals and patience helped me a lot, so that I have now the perfect logo for me and my business. Thank you, Jacob!

Marcus Drobny | Wedding Photographer
