eine sekunde von mir


A short PREVIEW of my music video for Poenitsch&Jakopic was published today on youtube. I made an experimental music video for their song "eine Sekunde von mir" (one second of mine) from their brand new album HERZTON (heart tune). Filmed with my NIKON D7000, edited with Premiere and After Effects, made with love, ideas, sweat, overnight rendering sessions and lots of seconds of mine!

A cool tool.

solo software

I have to admit, I am a very disciplined and organized person. My friends, my family and also my clients can proof that. But, once in a while a girl needs some tools to help her organize her daily working life!

I have tested the software SOLO – a tool - especially developed for freelancers – to help with the project management. Dashboard, Projects, Planner, Timesheets, Invoice, Messages, Contacts ... everything there – I believe it is the most beautiful management software I have seen so far.

I think it is definitly worth a 100 Euros per year. Saving time and nerves is always worth some money.

Responsive Design

responisve design

Nowadays webdesign is a battlefield.

I like to observe people and you do learn a lot by observing indeed. Sitting in the subway and watching other people furiously tipping with two fingers on their smartphones makes me chuckle. I am getting tiered myself by trying to scale all those websites on my little smartphonescreen.

BUT. There is help.

It is called Responsive Design. A design concept that is suited for every resolution and window width – from smartphones until the huge cinema desktop screen. It uses fluid grids, flexible images and media queries. It is getting more popular every day – finally also the big newspapers are getting a responsive REdesign.

Is your website prepared?

Nearly every client wants to have a mobile solution for their website. Well, today there are so many mobile devices and there will be even more in the future. Composing a website with responsive design is a huge challenge. The fluid design has to be brilliant in all the different formats with all the different window widths, user preferences, screen resolutions, browsers,...

The site has to adjust automatically and no matter which device is used, the design should stay as functional and beautiful at every size. Hopefully this makes the web not only more functional but also prettier – at least the webdesigners have to think deeply about what they are intending.

Lets get responsive!

Your site needs a responsive REdesign? Contact me
Together with my master of code Mr. Marcus Nickel I will make your website special!

Upcoming Musicvideo soon!

Herzton | Eine Sekunde von mir

Poenitsch and Jakopic are two musicians who recently finished the work on their latest album "Herzton". They asked me to make the video for the album title. I had so much fun shooting with the musicians and ... well I will not spoil the surprise...

Lets just say, the video turned out fantastic. I mixed video footage with typography and graphic elements in After Effects. Unfortunately the album hasn't been released yet and I am not allowed to show the video already. I am so very excited to have it published via i-tunes soon.

Have a look on their latest interview.

Hello, and welcome!

Hello, and welcome to my website. After years and years – finally Fräulein Pfeiffer is publishing her work.

I have to say thank you to all my friends, family and colleagues who have been persistent over the years and who have encouraged me to publish my projects. Special thanks goes out to my great friend and mad scientist of code Marcus Nickel who is mainly responsible that this website made its way from my dusty drawer into the world wide web. (Thank you Marcus, I know I can be persistent too!)

I founded Fräulein Pfeiffer 2006 right after receiving my diploma in MultiMediaArts. I started as a freelance graphic designer but I could not deny my multiple interests. Therefore I am not only a designer. Frl. Pfeiffer is more or less understood as an interdisciplinary creative Studio. SYSTEMS FOR VISUAL CREATION. I create visually in a multi-media context.

I am also a filmmaker and a photographer, I create 2D motion graphics, stop-motion animations and music videos. At the moment I am also writing my first feature film screenplay on weekends. I am offering stop-motion workshops for children in schools which is a lot of fun too.

This blog will be a collection of my work, inspirations, musings and experiences. Soon you will find out more about me if you follow my blog – you can also follow me on facebook!

If you have any questions, comments, submissions, or you just want to say hello... Drop me a note!
