Hi there, I'm Verena.

Welcome! I don't know why you are here, but I’m happy that you are.

I made the conscious choice not just to follow one passion but rather to get as much out of life as possible. What that entails? Here's a small overview:

Since 2016 my husband and I are traveling the world. What can be described as digital nomadism is everyday life to us. We switch places every 4-6 weeks, sometimes quicker. We get to know new places, new people, new food, and have a lot of new experiences. And while doing so, we have an everyday life that looks similar to that of other people but is just a little bit more exciting.

During our travels, we work. I work as a designer, illustrator, and sometimes as a web developer. No matter if it is websites, apps, icons, or other products like T-Shirts, books, or posters, I am all in.

This is an exciting mix that offers variety and the possibility to pursue all my passions while being location independent and discover the world.

In the beginning of 2020, we decided to find a home base. For us that means that after 3,5 years on the road, we have a place we can call ours. We wanted to use this home as a place to come back to while traveling. We decided that Amsterdam would be a great fit. An amazing, beautiful city with a lot of nice people, good food, and great coffee. Since 2020 does not really invite to travel, we are now able to enjoy everything this city has to over from a newly furnished place.
