Carolin Wanitzek is a scenographer and set designer from Mannheim, Germany, who concentrates on design in space. In the field of scenography she combines graphic design, set design and photography and develops visual concepts for extraordinary worlds. She designs three-dimensional installations, conceives exhibitions and constructs design objects that appear in interior design and in public spaces. Her works are published in digital media, magazines and catalogues. After graduating in communication design and scenography, she works for national and international clients and is a partner at OUI R Creative Studio.
If you are interested in her work, or if you want to collaborate, just feel free to say hello. Her services for visual productions includes conception, realization, photography (if desired) and post-production.
