About Vanessa

 Cognard portrait brand expert

100% Marketing Communications & Design

I worked in the field of design already alongside my school and study period. That led me straight into the communications business. It only took a few years before shifting from the agency side to the client side with a deep motivation!
I wanted to get to the source of developing and owning brand and marketing strategies.

Today you could call me quite experienced around brand and marketing communications, however I consider each project as new and unique. That’s what makes it so exciting!

I enjoy global work in the same way as going local. In the end, you are always somehow local wherever you would find yourself…
…and after all, it’s always about people and a good, satisfying collaboration serving all sides.

Post address:
Atelier im Kulturhof, Aberzhausen 9, 91180 Heideck, Germany

My studio is installed in an old farm house located in the
Thalach-Valley, part of the nature park Altmühltal in Bavaria.

it's a great place to clear one's mind and a paradise for hiking, climbing and canoeing. For a tour I recommend 4x4 and solid boots.
