The 2 Minute Interview
A wise man once said if you’re good at crafts, you can do anything. And right he was. Nadja König is pretty much the arts and craft champion around here. With a pen, a pair of scissors and paper she invents and creates completely and utterly astounding things. Fashion for example, or stationary concepts for big fish such as Johnny Walker or Häberlein and Mauerer. Nadja immediately won our hearts when she presented her unbelievably awesome illustrations for a PR client – lovely hand drawn shampoo bottles, tubes, jars, drinks and even water processing units (!). We met with the young and wild mummy for some cucumber soup and had a chat about package holidays, crime scenes and the normal day-to-day madness in the life of a paper-crazy person.
