I’m Heiko Winter – a German multidisciplinary Design Director, Art Director and Motion Graphics Artist based in London. 
 
My work is primarily digital and interactive, but I’m passionate about design in every medium.

Previously worked as Design Director at digital creative agency AnalogFolk London. I have grown and led a 15 strong team of multi disciplined designers.  


I have 12 years experience of  creating innovative, entertaining and meaningful design-led experiences through working with a multitude of international agencies and global brands. Google, Skype, Spotify, Nike, PlayStation, BMW, to name a few. 

And in doing so it's been a pleasure to learn from some incredibly inspiring and talented people along the way.
 
Outside of working hours I make music videos, design little animations, expand my photography skills and grow my ever expanding pile of personal doodles.
 
I’m always looking for new design challenges where I can push my boundaries and create new, inventive designs, animations and illustrations that have that extra bit of magic.
