Solveig StoebeI grew up in Germany, as an athletic, artistic + curious person. After I finished high school, I lived a season in the Italian Alps and worked as a snowboard teacher. For my Communication Design + Master Class Art Direction study, I moved back to Germany. Then my career brought me to Vienna where I was a Junior Graphic Designer for 2 years at the largest wine import + export company in Austria, and another 2 years as a Senior Graphic Designer for a design agency that included amongst their international clients Red Bull many others. In 2008 a big dream of mine came true and we moved to Canada. I learned French, played the flute in an orchestra + worked for an E-Learning company as a Senior Graphic Designer / Brand Lead, and helped the company earn its first Platinum Hermes Award by creating an Interface Design. Living in Vancouver since 2016 has given me the outdoor lifestyle I adore so much, by working as a cycling guide, cycling coach, road racing, participating in many other sports, as I am passionate about sharing the amazing benefits of cycling/sports (mentally + physically) with kids, youth + adults. Being an independent Senior Graphic Designer + Art Director has greatly developed a wide range of my skills with several local + international clients such as IBM, Cycling BC, and many others. My goal has always been to bring sports + design together and to express my passion of the outdoors through my professional skills; therefore I always try to bring something fresh, new and outstanding to my work. I love being active, creative + adventure travel. There is so much to learn and to discover in this world. I am always open to new creative and business opportunities with agencies and individual clients.
