NAME: Robert Sindermann
LOCATION: London, UK
SPECIALITIES: Conceptual design, digital, print, art direction, illustration, typography, visualisation, 3D modelling, branding, and drawing.
Age 13 I won a TV in a nationwide kids' art competition in Denmark. All they'd asked for was a simple drawing of a fairy tale scene but I massively over-shot the brief by creating an elaborate comic book about a moustachioed knight slaying a narcoleptic dragon on his journey to saving the princess. 
The life lesson I took away from this was that you shouldn't settle for the bare minimum of just answering what might be a simple task. It's about wanting to DO GREAT WORK and taking pride in your craft. 
I have a Scandinavian-German background and studied graphic design in Denmark and the UK. I started out drawing comics and designing heavy metal album covers in my spare time, and I am now an award-winning designer, art director, illustrator and team leader with 15 years' industry experience working on blue chip accounts in fully integrated agencies in London and beyond. On my journey from Junior Designer in a small marketing company to being Design Director in Campaign's Agency of the Year 2016, I’ve delivered outstanding work in digital, print, illustration, 3D, product design, DM, shopper, FMCG, home entertainment and cinema Point of Sale, storyboards, event design, and branding. 
Outside of work I spend far too much time worrying about the fortunes of Arsenal Football Club while enjoying life with my wonderful wife and two sons. 
I hope you enjoy my work as much as I do.
