I started my professional career as a student of german literature in 1992 and decided to become a media designer 1996 in a pretty small agency in the Saarland. I am self-employed since 1998, worked as a media design teacher on a media school in Saarbrücken from 2000-2002 and as a typography teacher on a media academy in Berlin in 2008. From 2003-2009 I ran a customer portraying platform called superRetro. I also worked as a freelancer for Posterlounge and for several design agencies among them Scholz and Friends Hamburg for Bombay Sapphire. My illustrations were published in the german magazines Novum, Glamour, Freundin, Joy, Berlin Stadtmagazin TIP, PRINZ Berlin, ZITTY Berlin and more. My work was included in the books Illustration (2007) and Websites (2004) by Feierabend Unique books. As a german resident you may have seen them in TV shows as well
2007 I began to collect Blythe dolls and found excitement in making clothes for them. Today I am working as a dolly-designer as well.
A dolly designer is someone who make-over or restorate dolls, give them new hair and fashion. I work on Blythe only, my label is called *jaszmade Spa, Fashion and Dolls. Feel free to follow the link for further enlightment.
I love art, design and cats, feel inspired by fashion, music and the sixties and dislike too many people around me. I prefer working alone, dress myself in black and drinking my coffee in the morning but not later than 10 o’clock. Gossip bores me away and I would rather meet one of my dollies than someone telling me about drama. Oh and I am a crafter and hate having my picture taken.
I was a singer in a former life (1992-2000), a pretty good entertainer they said. My bands were called Cozmik Elektras (92-97) and The Flake (98-00) and I miss making music. I started playing the ukulele like my hubs does and we have fun taking ourselves not too serious.
