Stefanie Lenk has over fifteen years of professional experience as a graphic designer. She has worked both in-house and as a freelancer for clients in both Germany and North America, in industries from book and magazine publishing and national television to medical/academic research and general service providers.

In 2012 Stefanie completed an MSc in Medical Art at the University of Dundee (Scotland), augmenting her skill-set with additional in-depth knowledge of human anatomy, medical practise, research and ethics, which has been of immense benefit in her work with clients in the medical sector. Ranging from clean simple vector illustrations to highly detailed drawings with a precise attention to scientific accuracy, she provides innovative visualisation solutions which uniquely bridge the gap between theoretical knowledge and practical understanding.

From 2016-2021 she also worked part-time as an academic research assistant at the Freie University in Berlin, writing for academic publications and teaching workshops on conceptualising and drawing visual narratives. Her continued interest in knowledge visualisation extends beyond the boundaries of medicine and health into projects revolving around social practise, education, and technology.
