The internationally recognized "OfG Design Award 2019" winner Monika Schneiter began her career as a fashion and textile designer. The origin of their collections could be described as strange - or as a kind of divine inspiration. "I could suddenly see patterns on walls that no one else saw," remembers Monika Schneiter. "At first I thought: am I crazy now?" Instead of rushing to the psychiatrist, she took out her notebook and sketched her first drafts, the pattern prints of which became the trademark of her colorful organic label far beyond the country's borders. For your creations she was u. a. at the Designer’s Open in Leipzig, the Modepalast in Vienna and the avant-garde fashion show in Zurich. Since 2018 the creative artist has been working as a freelance graphic designer, illustrator, comic artist and photographer.
