Diana Schackow
Illustration and Graphic Design

I am an illustrator and graphic designer based in Leipzig. With a Ph.D. in Linguistics and a B.A. in Communication Design, my work is grounded in both science and art.

An illustration is more than a rendition of the facts; it can uncover the stories behind the data, touch emotionally and turn information into deeper understanding. Visualizations help greatly in communicating abstract concepts. With my expertise and experience I offer you creative and individual solutions to illuminate your content and ideas.

My work includes (but is not limited to): posters, infographics, illustrated maps, advertisements, comics, icons, logos, record covers, book covers and book illustrations.
