Andreas Uebele studied architecture and urban planning at the University of Stuttgart and art at the Stuttgart State Academy. In 1996 he founded his agency ‘büro uebele visuelle kommunikation’. Since 1998 he has been a professor of communication design at Düsseldorf University of Applied Sciences.
Andreas speaks about his first design job, a poster design for the movie Dr. Mabuse. He explains how this was his first experience with typography. We ask him whether there are similarities between architecture and typography and what it was that attracted him to graphic design instead of architecture. We also talk about the process and redesign of the German Eagle, that his studio did for the Deutsche Bundestag, the German Parliament. We end the interview with a ‘mean’ question. Recorded at the 20plusX 2011 Symposium in München, Germany.
