I’m Katrin, but some call me Cindy Winkelried. It’s a weird story that I would be happy to tell you another time. Born and raised on the beautiful Bözberg in the Kanton Aargau (also known as the coolest Kanton in Switzerland, I heard), I moved to Denmark and currently live in Copenhagen, where I work as a designer at the digital creative agency Hello Monday. 

In my illustrations I always love to bring an edge. You know, a little humor or some joke that makes you smile. But mostly, I love to hide easter eggs or insiders for my friends. Often I take inspiration directly from them. And from everything else I love, like dancing lindy hop, playing ping pong, old Lamborghinis, Gruyère cheese, Campari. Just the good things in life. 

Some people say they like working with me, because I DO things, instead of only talking about it. Sometimes I think we should be less afraid of the rules. Less overthinking, more doing loco things that’s where magic happens and unique characters and concepts get developed.


I am working and have worked for different clients such as Zurich Tourism, Tibits, Ikea, Vice Magazine, Google, Youtube Kids, LG, Lego, Hive Club and my favourite client: The Gonzo Club in Zurich. I also work with several musicians, like the Swiss rapper Stress and the international artists The Ting Tings.


My work won several awards. I see them as a motivation to push myself, do great things and challenge the industry, but also to make party. I found it very funny, when my drawing of a penis won Silver in the Art Directors club in Switzerland. höhö.
