… how everything starts:
… from heart fish to Herzfrisch…
All started with the green and white striped computer paper that my father brought home from the office. I was three years old at the time and started painting. I drew him a new picture every day and gave it to him when he left the house in the morning.
A few years later, my mother gave me a diary. I’ve been writing every day since then. Little by little, simple notebooks became small works of art. I pasted them with small drawings, pictures and texts that I cut out of magazines or old books.
With the diaries I designed myself, I laid the foundation for my current products in the Herzfrisch shop. One of my first projects was my calendar, which in October every year threatened to burst with all the things stuck in it. Instead of using bound books, I started making calendar-sized ring binders, punching all the pages and using rings that were easy to open. So I could easily add or remove pages and use any type of paper at the same time.
I built my first travel diary like my diaries, wrote down experiences and made my first collages with snippets from brochures, postcards and tickets, then I knew: This is my thing, I want to make that my job.
I want to design, I want to work creatively, and my favorite material paper in all its facets is the most important raw material.
Until then, there were a few detours on my way. In the end, I held my degree in my hands and started in the agency world. With the leap into self-employment, I dared something completely new.
The agency was called “ littlebluefish “. The logo of course showed a fish in blue.
In addition to my work as a graphic designer , I was always developing new paper products . Following the annual Herzfrisch calendar, I developed the “ Wunschlandbummler “, which quickly became a bestseller and also in the Press featured, as well as many different postcards.
With that I already had several products to market. All I needed now was a label under which I could sell them in an online shop.
After playing around with my new Herzens products and the fish in the agency name, I got the name Herzfisch , which evolved into Herzfrisch . As a contrast to the blue, I opted for pink .
My own label was born , and the products are available here:
… my Herzfrisch Shop
… beautiful things made of paper and more …
After a while, my collages also came along.
Beautiful, handmade and individual products that come from the heart.
