Björn Voigt, born in Göttingen in 1967, spent his school years in Bremen until his A levels. Like his father he began to study law, but then decided on another, creative major: graphic design. In 1992 he started studying at the University of the Arts.
Then as now his main focus has been illustration, idea generation, and story-telling – for example, illustrations that he produced while still going to university were selected for the exhibition at the international Children’s Book Fair in Bologna.
As a founding member and general manager of GfG, he has been handling various clients and projects, among others in the food and consumer goods sectors, since 1994. His main fields of activity range from idea generation using various creativity techniques to innovation consulting in product development. In 2007 an animation film that was produced under his direction received the »iF design award«.
Björn Voigt has three children and lives in Bremen.
