Adrian Bauer is a Berlin-based freelance art director and illustrator with a crush on detailed colorful forms, textures and shades. In 2013 he did his diploma degree in visual communication in the illustration class by Henning Wagenbreth at the University of the Arts, Berlin (UdK) and studied additional for one year illustration at the University of the West of England in Bristol. 

As a student he was cofounder of the creative-collective »Freie Radikale« in 2010, which was a loose union of interdisciplinary working designers. Since 2013 Adrian is working as a freelance designer for clients in advertising and economy such as Audi, Bosch and Snapchat, but also for agencies and publishing houses. The main focus of his work is thereby on corporate illustration, illustrative branding, concept and editorial illustration and information visualization.

For his works in the fields of art direction and illustration he received several awards such as the 3x3 International Illustration Award and the Adobe Government Creativity Award.
