HELLO ITS NICE TO MEET YOU!
Graphic Design & Illustration
My name is Valerie Umbricht. I have (apprenticeship?) degree as a graphic designer (EFZ) and I do freelance work as a graphic designer. The focus on my graphic work is in printmedia. Flyers, logos and magazines. you name it. My clients so far have been mostly small local buissnesses or private persons. I am a very passionate digital illustrator and I would love to work also more in that area in the future. If you want to work with me, I am very pleased to hear from you!
Art Education & Social work
Four years ago I started studying at the zHdK for my bachelors degree in art education. I graduated in 2018. I put the focus in my studies on the topic of textile-work, ceramics and painting. During university I did an internship in the art school of St. Gallen as a teacher for art-prep students. I also worked in several social institutions for children and teens with special needs. Until this day I am a part of the kleine Kunstschule in St. Gallen. We have after school programs for children and young adults who want to focus on their creative skills and we support them with their own projects. I teach 4 different classes and I did a summer course in action painting. I love the work with all different kinds of people and I enjoy working in a good team. If you are interested in a project for your community don’t hesitate to contact me for more information.
