About

I Like Birds is a studio located in the city of Hamburg, founded in 2010 by the two designer André Gröger and Susanne Kehrer. Since then the team works on turning designs into creations. They take great pleasure in experimenting with various mediums to develop customized and individual solutions.

 

The studios activities focus on transforming numerous types of information into a visual language which conveys the content in a more fluid and effective manner - putting a lot of time and effort into creating a wide range of print products, including posters, books, illustrations, corporate identities and other visual works for cultural and public purposes.

 

Beside their day-to-day work I Like Birds is also teaching art-direction in Hamburg, giving Workshops and lectures in Germany, Europe and Switzerland.
