Tobias Borries (illustration)
"I illustrate because I enjoy it!"
Tobias Borries is a graphic designer and illustrator. He was born in the banking metropolis of Frankfurt am Main. At the end of the eighties he completed his studies in communication design at the Offenbach University of Design. As a result, Tobias wandered through a handful of agencies, starting with a PR agency in Germany to advertising agencies in New York. One and a half years later he started his own business and has been working as a freelance illustrator since then.
Today Tobias lives with his wife and daughter in the state capital of Hesse, Wiesbaden. His activities include the design and illustration of books, brochures and posters. He designs sympathy figures, logos, comics and more.
For the illustration of the book "Why We Are Here - Travel Stories from Our World", Tobias went on a journey with the authors - a storytelling journey to his own story. He placed special emphasis on getting to know the authors and giving their stories a personal face.
With a passion for detail, craftsmanship and artistic precision and the utmost respect for the biographical narratives, Tobias illustrated each one lovingly and individually.
