Daniel Wenzel

A spotlight on Daniel with 8 questions and our favourite pieces.

Daniel is a graphic and type designer from Germany, specialising in utilising animation-tools and code. He currently freelances, working mostly for and with DIA Studio and Dinamo.

Do you remember the moment you knew you wanted to become a designer?

I guess in kindergarten. I wanted to be like a renaissance artist – multidisciplinary, commissioned, creative, solving problems. “designer” is a relatively new term.

Did you go to design school? Do you think it was necessary to get to where you are today?

Yes. I think it helped me to shape myself. Not so much through classes and education, but through like-minded people and the change of environment. 

Who is your favorite designer right now?

I don’t have a “favorite designer”. It tempts you to be guided and inspired in your own profession, which should not be the case. I want to choose my idols beyond my own field. I admire Katsu for example. He is a famous graffiti artist utilising fire extinguishers, drones, robots, ai etc.

What is your all time favorite font?

I don’t have a “favorite font”. A typeface serves a purpose and should not only be chosen by taste.

What is your method of getting out of a designers block?


Can you describe your ideal working environment?

Inspiring and everchanging environment, surrounded by good people and good food.
