Artist Profile: Ferdinand Wedler
Ferdinand Wedler was born in Heidelberg. During his studies of media and communications at universities in Germany and France he developed his very own, graphic, visual shorthand drawing style of all lines. His stickmen, symbols and pictograms reduce topics to their main aspects and appear in a generic way, so they can be read and understood across culture, gender and age.
Ferdinand's images have appeared in newspapers, magazines and advertising projects in Germany and other countries. He has created illustrations for books, card games and stationery as well as for many companies and websites. He has also created company and website logos in his distinctive style. His portfolio is very diverse with topics from education and lifestyle to economy, business, and technology.
