About me

© 2013 Thomas Vollmar

Doing determines being. 
Who I am and what I believe in.

Hello, my name is Ronen. I am a designer in Frankfurt am Main and Tel Aviv. My areas of expertise are holistic brand management, corporate identity and design. I also work in the fields of archaeological design, cartography and photography.

I lead brand design processes. Together with my clients we create persuasive brands.

I am happy to be there from the very beginning and hop on to ongoing brand and design processes alike. I love unique brands and brands in the making and I enjoy being able to contribute to their success by design and management.

Customers commission me as external design office, in some cases I call in my well-established design squad on short notice. Other customers book me as a designer to lead their design from within, and others ask me to advise on questions of design, the design process or the search for the right agency portfolio.

I believe that you have to do what you love. This is the only way to achieve outstanding performance. I've never really enjoyed working for companies that chase market share. I much prefer to work for companies that go ahead and do things that they would do, even if nobody would pay them.

Some time ago I started to study the basics and techniques of Cartography and since then I have been designing modern, large-format maps of places of longing or regions of historic relevance.

Out of love for early mankind's history and by help of my studies in History of Art and Archaeology and visual communications as well, I create Archaeological Reconstructions and lifelike Visualizations on scientific grounds.

Today I offer my wide-ranging field of work not only for brands but also for archaeological parks, museums and authorities.
