Hi! My name is Anna,
also known as The Moza.
I’m based in Berlin and I design Websites, Mobile Applications and everything printable.
In my free time I like to explore the city, draw letters, and work on my coding skills.
The following are the
services I offer:
Web Design, Print & Corporate Design, Motion Design, Mobile Design, Information Visualisation, Lettering, Social Media
The things I work
with most often:
Adobe InDesign, Illustrator, Photoshop,
HTML5, CSS3, Wordpress
These are some of the places where I leave my footprints around the Interwebs:
I maintain a popular Tumblelog that combines design, urban life, culture, and everything in between: Posters of Berlin
The arrows on the side will lead
you to examples of my recent work.
In my free time I love drawing letters with the nib pen or flat brushes. These are some impressions from my instagram feed. Currently I'm experimenting with Textura and Rotunda, both blackletter scripts common in the 14th and 15th century, used in Northern and Southern Europe respectively.
We overhauled the complete structure and design of the DroidCon Website with the goal of a clean and modern look. The global site links to all local Android conventions all over the world, with infos and dates of the events.
We also designed the logo and determined a style guide for the corporate design.

On occasion of the Frankfurt Book Fair 2012, ZDF Aspekte did a satiric piece on the best sellers and their authors, and had us provide the visual part. Using images and vectors compiled in AfterEffects, together with animated cartoon, the piece turned out very diverse and entertaining.

WE Mag is a magazine/iPad platform for different cultures, that showcases user generated content. People can submit articles and images, which are then polished by the editorial staff. This way, the knowledge and opinions of many different people converge to form one big diverse cloud of culture. This is the practical part of my bachelor thesis.
This 40 second-long animation was comissioned for the website of ‘Geld Gegen Ware’, a company that buys used items like books and CDs. To visualize how the process works we created two characters who walk the user through the steps necessary to participate.

Materialarchiv stocks a myriad of materials, such as pigments, woods, an plastics for artists and designers, and is backed by various Swiss universities and museums.
The app is a research tool for the archive, with each material being present with its own profile, including images and extensive information. All items can be sorted with different categories and filters, and materials can be saved to favourites and reviewed.

For both the directions for use (above) and the flyer it was important to keep in mind the possible low-quality printing and coarse paper/surface that may be the only thing available in the rural areas. Therefore, we designed icons with as little detail as possible, yet still easily recognizable, even without the text for non-English speakers or illiterate people.
VillageBoom is a company striving to spread solar powered lamps in rural areas of Africa and India that lack electrical infrastructure. As part of a five-day workshop various groups worked on improving the lamp prototype or the design.
Marcel Bachran and I were exploring the requirements of a corporate design for such a product and produced a logo with claim, completely overhauled the manual and flyer, the caution notices and icons on the lamp, and produced two posters advertising the advantages of the solar lamp.
Below: Newly designed logo with tagline. It illustrates how the sunlight is captured on the roof and directed inside. The shape of the hut cites a commonly found building style in both Africa and India.
State tv channel ZDF comissioned this animation for a five minute feature on hipsters, explaining the origin and occurance of the phenomenon. All items are painstakingly cut out with Photoshop and then arranged and animated in AfterEffects.

Golsparplan.de is a financial service provider that allows individuals to buy actual gold and silver as long-term investment. The focus here was to quickly communicate to the visitor what the service is about, so we simplyfied the information and narrowed down the advantages to key facts and displayed them through illustrations with tooltips. Since customer contact was very important to the client, the hotline number and contact form are placed prominently on every page.
Wohngrund is an iPad magazine I conceived, collected content for, designed and finally programmed during an editorial design course in cooperation with Axel Springer publishing.
As the final project for our animation course, we conceived the story of ‘The Man in the Dot‘, who is a raster dot in a poster museum, falls down and explores the surroundings. When he feels alone, he gets his girlfriend to see this new world together with him, however, as more dots wake up and join them, the pictures start to fall apart. The two heroes realize this and try to convince the others to return to their places.
In the month of December 2011 for thirty days I recorded every bit of live conversation that I’ve conducted, which includes the three categories Face-to-face interactions, phone and skype conversations, and online chats. On top of that, I’ve kept count of topics, keywords, people and their respective locations.
The main visual is made up of circles, each representing one person. The color depends on whether the person is a relative, friend or colleague, its intensity on the path of communication.
I chose seven other of Murakami’s books and conceived cover designs – reflecting the book’s respective content – so when correctly arranged, the lines connect to the adjacent cover.
“Kafka On The Shore“ follows the stories of various characters, who on occasion meet, or experience parallels. This metaphor of life and the power of fate is conveyed via the keyvisual featured on the cover and throughout the book. The overall simplistic design, with generously used white space and strong presence of the grid is inspired by the Japanese origin and setting. The subtle use of red and a combination of a light slab serif and a modest sans serif typeface, reinforces this aspect.
There are more projects going online soon, make sure to check back!
