Elisabeth Kopf is a self-taught designer. Having studied psychology, history and philosophy in Vienna she has spent the years since 1989 making a name for herself with highly original and highly personal work in the fields of photography, graphic design and visual communication. Numerous international awards, exhibitions and publications underline Kopf’s special position as a designer who sees herself principally as an author rather than as a service provider.
