Hi! I’m Kathrin, a Tokyo-based designer and photographer. Born in Germany with a multicultural background, I started out as a translator and writer. I’m fluent in English, German, Japanese, and Spanish.
After being given the opportunity to make use of my art and design skills in a professional environment, I decided to follow my passion and break into the creative industry.
During my time as a full-time translator, I translated a wide variety of materials, from business documents and press releases to restaurant menus and gaming apps. Some of my clients included Bandai, Softbank, Calbee, P.G.C.D., and Colopl. Inc.
As an interpreter, I helped businesses and individuals breach cultural differences, which also included working as a “fixer” for film crews coming to Japan.
When I started writing original content for several Japan-related websites I was offered a one-year contract as Senior Content Associate at Odigo Japan. During my time there, I was able to work across departments, specializing in content creation while also learning more about marketing strategies, photography, and design.
Since then I’ve been working as a freelance designer and photographer. My experience includes working with travel, lifestyle, advertising, and marketing companies. For bigger or more complex projects I work with a network of professionals to ensure the highest quality to my clients.
