Sven Völker (*1974) lives and works as designer, author and artist in Berlin and is editor of Some Magazine.

He studied at the University of Art in Bremen and received an MA from Middlesex University in London. Later in 2004 he was appointed professor and taught at the Karlsruhe University of Arts and Design (HfG at ZKM) in Karlsruhe and at Burg Giebichenstein University of Art.

Graphic symbols play an important role in his work. Colour, form and typography are being combined in a playful modular way and evolve in ever new combinations. He designed the award winning corporate identity for the japanese Suzuki Motor Corporation from five visual elements only. With his small and unconventional Berlin based studio he also worked for clients such as Volkswagen and BMW.

In his personal projects he transfers this experimental way of working and thinking into the world of art, books and lately even onto the stage. For the Opera in Halle/Saale, he developed a stage design for the novel symphony „The Trumpet of the Swan” by E.B. White. His large scale art installations that consist of coloured light and printed paper traveled to exhibitions in Norway, Prague and Bern in 2012.

Since 2010 he is Editor-in-chief of Some Magazine and frequently publishes books about design and art: „Some Book - Graphic expressions between Design and Art” at Lars Müller Publishers and „Go Faster - The graphic design of racing cars” at Gestalten Publishers. „Der Welt über die Straße helfen” was written and edited together with german philosopher Peter Sloterdijk in 2010.

In autumn 2015 his first picture book will be published under the title: „There is a little black spot on the sun today”. Völker’s bright illustration transform Sting’s poetic words into a minimalistic children’s book about pain.
