Anne Büttner is a creative studio offering creative direction, conception and design with a fluid interaction and collaborative focus on art, culture, fashion and commerce.
Within her graphical approach she investigates our surrounding through a deeply involved dialog between her own abilities and the way these can form our picture of the world.
Her distinctive designs are based on a prior research process, which enables her to create unique and unconventional identities that are tailored to the specific idea of each project. Originating from that profound engagement with content, rather than the surface of design, her bold sense for colors, forms and typography evolves and challenges common expectations. The emphasis on a dialogical symbiosis between her graphical language and the conceptual idea of each client is the very centre of her practice.
Since her graduation from Gerrit Rietveld Academie in Amsterdam, where she was supervised by the graphic designers Linda van Deursen and Julia Born, Büttner worked as freelance graphic designer on major longterm-projects at HORT in Berlin. During the past ten years she gained various experiences in different fields ranging from commercial companies like NIKE to cultural institutions like Künstlerhaus Mousonturm, Frankfurter Positionen and Bergen Assembly.
In recent times Büttner is focusing on collaborations within the art and culture sector, working together with different artists like Martin Dörr, Manuel Tayarani and Andrea Farrenkopf as well as the online magazine for contemporary art, PASSE-AVANT.
