KATENA Studios
QUESTION: What drew you to illustration/design?

Katena Studios: For LENA it was pretty obvious since her childhood, while Kathrin took a few sideroads on her way. Opposites attract and this creates a smoothing athmosphere and offers different points of view.

QUESTION: Do you have any formal design training?

Katena Studios: Yes, both of us have studied subjects like CGI, typographie, graphic design and illustration and specialized ourselves.

QUESTION: Where do you live?

Katena Studios: In the historic city of Nuremberg.

QUESTION: Can you describe your studio for me?

Katena Studios: Creative chaos is what best describes it. A large wooden table which is completely covered with analog stuff, like comics, sketch books, pencils, and paint, also a ginseng and a singing bowl. And then there is the computer desktop. Lots of colorful pictures on the walls for inspiration.

QUESTION: What is your biggest inspiration?

Katena Studios: Life itself. Documentaries, blogs, talks with friends and family, dreams, memories, fears, wishes and lots of coffee table books. We also love comics, video games and crazy Japanese commercials.

QUESTION: How do you get the best ideas?

Katena Studios: Simply by going crazy, most likely with a beer.

QUESTION: What technique do you use?

Katena Studios: It starts out with out with sketches, either analog or digital. The final realisation evolves with modo (3D program), illustrator, photoshop, on paper or all of it together.

QUESTION: Tell us about a favorite project you have recently completed.

Katena Studios: We have created ourselves as characters and turned them into 3D models. It´s fun to illustrate oneself and we have lots of plans with the figures like making a comic with them or 3D prints.
