Alumni, graduate, former - in principle, it is not that important what we call those who leave university after their studies.

It is more important that they convey the HfG spirit into the world - and, of course, everything they gained from their studies. That an arts university, in general, and the HfG, in particular, are so different can be seen in the CVs that are presented here. They are all exciting and versatile, sometimes surprising, sometimes quite straightforward. They can have a great influence, with international appeal, or be completely rooted. What unites them all is that the graduates featured here are successful in what they do. Further, they prove that not only can design professions be fulfilling, they can be successful in financial terms too.
