Tom Richter was born in 1986 in Hanau. After an apprenticeship as an wholesales man he begun studying Communication-Design at the Faculty of Design in Darmstadt. His work wobbles between seriousness and absurdity. Isn’t this what life is about?

Contemporary playground means the ever changing process of exploring and learning.


Tom Richter enjoys working in the fields of cultural and corporate design, he doesn’t like advertisment at all. What he does like are well designed posters, books and websites. For his circumstances he gathered quite a lot experiences in exhibition identitys.

Recently he started to learn about web design autodidactically. It might sound weird, but he starts to like the procedure of programming.
