Ignorantly, when flicking through her site, I assumed that Friederike was a boy’s name (although something about the work alerted me beforehand that this may not be the work of a male). Not to be sexist and stir up trouble, but the delicacy, colour choice and attention to detail just made this work stand out as not something that had been created by a boy.
There’s a dreamy, wistful quality to her work, particularly in her guide to secondhand shops in Nuremberg, Fürth and Erlangen where the illustration used is so well-considered that it politely steps in front of the graphic design that Friederike has laboured so carefully over. Young, talented and with an incredibly professional portfolio in the back pocket of her brain, this girl’s gonna go super far.
