I am Cyrill Kuhlmann, Art Director and live in Bonn, Germany.
I work mainly as a creative consultant for cultural practices and in teaching.

In 2020 I founded COPE Studio™, a company for creative consulting and strategies. Since 2021 I have teaching assignments at German universities for graphic design in connection with creative coding. I have been a substitute professor at the Fachhochschule Dortmund, University of Applied Sciences and Arts since 2022.

In recent years I have lent visual identity to various media brands - including German print publications such as "NEON", "BOA by Jérôme Boateng" and Deutsche Bahn’s "db mobil". With COPE Studio™ I embrace the changing landscape of the design industry, navigating shifts and venturing into the realm of creative services and consulting.
