The man on the safety rope

Niklas Scholz

Yes, Niklas had a typical life for a Dortmund boy: born in Herdecke (What?), grew up in Dorstfeld, Leibniz High School, specialized high school diploma. Then: training as a tax clerk. This job title and the contents could not convince. He preferred to secure children on the climbing rope.

Consequently, Niklas turned his passion into a profession: Photoshop, graphic design, visual effects, print design, web design, video/motion design/animation, illustration, UI/UX, editorial design, logo design, and so much more – this led him to an apprenticeship as media designer concept and visualization at a renowned agency in Bochum. He learned from no less than five art directors, stayed another year. Niklas came back to Dortmund and optimized the online store for a futon retailer. Sometime in between, he trained as a social media manager at the Chamber of Commerce and built a small business.

Now he is the man on the safety rope at Schwarz+Matt. With his skills in photography, video, photo retouching and for interactive designs, he is the right link for design, web development as well as performance marketing and will make us even stronger.

Privately Niklas plays guitar in a German pop band, but is rather quiet and rarely in a bad mood. Unless the technology goes on strike. Then….

Niklas, your performance, your solo.
