Here 2013 Speaker Profile: How Sarah Illenberger is crafting her own path

Sarah Illenberger’s award-winning work spans a multitude of practices, from illustration and art direction to set design and photography. Her simple use of materials paired with complex ideas and an eye for detail has led to the creation of a wonderfully fresh body of work, which in turn has attracted a number of high-profile clients.

Born in Munich, Sarah studied at Central Saint Martin’s before returning to Germany to set up her Berlin-based studio where she creates concepts for editorial as well commercial clients including Vogue, Creative Review and Wallpaper*. Not wanting to be pigeonholed into any one genre, she embraces a wide range of techniques and processes from lovingly handcrafted to computer generated design.

Sarah will be sharing insight into her creative process at Here 2013, revealing the method behind her meticulously handmade pieces, including show-stopping window displays and beautifully-rendered still life photographs.
