Who i am
Senior Art Director, Copywriter & Author
I know how to handle the graphic direction of a project and put all of my heart and experience in every single project. I have a strong – and I seriously mean it – eye for details, this allows me to jump from pure graphic design through copy writing and branding.
I‘m a true teamplayer and a hands on creative. I know how designers work; what makes them tick, knowing when they’re stuck or need help. It’s all about trust, inspiration and providing ideas.
As a graphic design and typography lecturer i think of ways to improve on existing material. I come up with new ideas to make the product ranges more appealing, ad campaigns and branding.
In addition to my graphic design projects i wrote a fairytale “ANGELWOOD. KINGS & QUEENS” for the young and the young at heart. In these trying times, many feel true values such as the pursuit of happiness, faith, and hope slipping out reach. Me and my best friend, award-winning Chinese illustrator Su Haitao, joined forces to create the first part of a bright and serene story full of courage, hope, friendship, confidence, and love.
My motto: “Believe in your dreams!”

" Hendrik Birke has become an indispensable partner over the last several years when it comes to achieving the ambitious men's world. Enthusiasm, commitment, creativity and reliable implementation characterize our cooperation. And of course the love for the noble, hand-rolled cigars from Cuba! "
Beatriz Dirksen, HEADWARE
" Authentic, reliable and honest - from head to toe - in my eyes Hendrik is the perfect business partner. Then you can sometimes have different opinions, but the only thing that counts in the end is the result and distinguishes itself greatly from the usual formats. It is truly unique and here I mean the publisher, magazine and online presence. Thanks Hendrik and keep it up! "
Over the last years we have realized numerous projects for the Bond Men’s Magazine for our clients. The collaboration with Hendrik Birke has always been very pleasant and fair. We are looking forward to our future cooperation."

I have known Hendrik for 4 years now and I do have to say, that it has been and continues for me to be, a fantastic journey through imagination and creativity! Magazines, books, adds, websites, blogs, anything Hendrik does, is simply a pleasure to read or view. His taste, his eloquence and his outlook on life are what makes him the special person that he is. His impeccable control of computer technologies and talent make him develop unique websites and imagery, which are not only breathtakingly beautiful but easy to navigate through and use. His generosity, kindness and views or opinions, in various ways, make him a unique individual who reminds you that life is well worth smiling about. Thank you, Hendrik."
