Daniel Angermann is a Cologne-based graphic artist working on a variety of projects from typography, identities & websites to video & photography. During his studies at ecosign / Akademie für Gestaltung he co-founded the designbüro köln – a cologne based studio known for creating responsible & socially relevant design solutions. He regularly gives interviews and guest lectures for magazines, publications and colleges in the field of art and design.
We are all mediators. My work centres around us. Therefore every kind of art demands responsible dealings and the freedom of any individual within its activities. It is all about communication between the world and us as humans. In times where everything is measured by its aesthetic quality taking place in a reality flooded by the media, the degenerated archetype calls for transformation back into a more natural one needing to be aroused and spread all over the world. The human represents the colour every work of art requires.
