Hello out there,
Playroutine compiles the visual work of Axel Roessler, living and working in Tucson/USA and Frankfurt/Germany in turns. Over the years, the combination of music and visuals has become the main focal point in my work.
Although I have done lots of commercial work too, I have decided to focus on my own productions on this site, to give a hint which kind of creative aesthetics in new media I like most.
My love for screen/motion design started some years ago – in 1999 I started with 3D as one of the founding members of the electronic art&media label saasfee*, a creative collective with whom I continue to be involved.
Beside my freelance work in motion design, 3D, illustration or other projects, I was teaching interactive/motion design at the Hochschule fuer Gestaltung (university of art and design) Offenbach am Main from 2011 – 2014. From 2014 to 2019 I was living and woking in Tucson/Arizona, and after 5 years in the beautiful desert landscape of the southwest I’m back now in Frankfurt.
From 2011 to 2018, I also curated and organized the Desert Dust Cinema film festival in Lobo/Texas. Screenings of my own animations took place worldwide at film festivals in New York, Los Angeles, Boston, Sydney, Madrid, Paris, South Korea, Rotterdam, Berlin and many more. Sometimes I even find the time for new internal productions – hopefully soon again. For any questions, idea exchange or job offers please get in touch.
