First of his great and noble name
Christopher Berger is a budding graphic designer taking his first big boy steps out of the HTL1 Graphic and Communications Master Class door. He is fully prepared to take the graphics world by storm, in all manner of shenanigans, general malarkey and good old fashioned tomfoolery.
Who knew talking in the Third person was so much work?
Here’s a brief history of who I am, what I do, and why we should be friends. Being half Austrian and half Singaporean life has always been rather interesting. I spent much of my younger days in constant upheaval, raised by two brilliantly wonderful adult types next to my little brother who would end up not staying so little. My father was and will always be a globetrotter. Working in hotel management gave him the perfect opportunity to follow his dreams. Naturally we ended up traveling the world behind him. I'd like to think these experiences have really inspired the way I see the world around me. But riding this crazy hurtling blue ball through the universe I know that I have only just begun to scratch the surface. Nevertheless, I am proud to call myself a child of the world, spending over 15 years of my life living in Asia, Africa and the Middle East.
Arriving in Austria after my A Levels (the English "Matura") I enrolled in the Kunstuniversität Linz. Finishing my Bachelors in Raum & Design Strategien under Frau Elsa Prochazka, I moved onto something much more solid here at the HTL1, and could not be happier. In some ways I find Graphic design so freeing, so easy. After all the hard work, at the end of a project when everything finally comes together. The feeling of satisfaction is almost indescribable. I always knew I was creative, and it is so liberating to find somewhere where I can grow and hopefully excel.
My tool box
In my free time I enjoy a good book or movie as much as the next man, working up a sweat doing whatever terrible training plan hell spat out and cooking, cooking is fun too. It might be that eating the food is the better part though. Also in the past few years I've found myself drawn into the world of "wettkampftauglichen Vollkontakt-Ritterkampf" and now am proud to represent Austria yearly at the Vollkontakt world championships and in smaller tournaments through-out Europe.
