Portrait of the Illustrator Laura Finke

Hello, I am Laura Finke, freelance illustrator and media designer based in Göttingen, Germany.

Thematically my illustrations are focussed on socio-political and eco-minded events. Human rights, especially female empowerment, parenting, culture and environment are both inspiration and a matter close to my heart.

My activity emphasis lies in editorial illustration, portraits and corporate design. To get a broader overview of my range visit services.

With my illustrations I visually undergird the stories you are telling. In order to trigger the viewer’s mental reaction and help deepening the impact of your article, campaign or brand. To get the best out of our project I appreciate an open and collaborative communication.

Through my drawings I wish to contribute to more humanity and consciousness for fellows and nature. If you are looking for someone to reveal what is hidden by the superficial – get in touch!


Having studied Communication Design at the Academy Minerva in Groningen, the Netherlands, and the University of the Arts in Philadelphia, USA, I finished my Bachelor’s degree in Design with a major in Illustration and Animation in 2014.

Back in Germany I added a vocational training as a media designer to gain work experience in an ad agency and to provide technically diligent graphic designs as well.

In 2019 I started working freelance and organised workshops as the first Göttingen based ArtNight artist and offered creative courses at the VHS Göttingen. Since 2020 I’ve been focussing purely on illustrating and designing.
