Pixelgarten, the multidisciplinary space headed by Adrian Niessler and Catrin Altenbrandt in Frankfurt is not a classic design studio—it is more unconventional and fun.
Both designers graduated from the Offenbach University Art School and their projects are often on the cusp of design and fine art. Going beyond these limits is vital for them in order to generate ideas and find new avenues for visual communication.
They specialize in art direction and illustration but also develop projects of installation, animation, and fashion and are set for new challenges. They enjoy combining analogue techniques and digital techniques to create something new and different.
Books such as Young German Design, Tactile, Lemon Poppy Seed, and Data Flow have featured their work and their work has also been reviewed in magazines such as Shift, Computer Arts China, and Wired.
