Sandra Mergelkuhl

Heyo and hello!

I’m Sandra, an attentive communication designer. What do I do? Well, communication designers translate the content-related core of a message into visual language. They prepare abstract knowledge in an informative and easily consumable way. Therefore I set my focus on information design and user experience. As a solution-oriented team player, I gained experiences in digital and print.

Let me know if you have any questions. It will be nice to meet you!
