Verena Zirngibl was born in Regensburg in 1996 and completed her school-leaving exams there in 2015. Even as a child, she showed an interest in and a talent for drawing and graphic design, a passion that would later become her career. After school, she decided to start a bachelor’s degree at the Faculty of Design at FHWS University of Applied Sciences, Würzburg. In 2019 she gained practical experience as a working student at the creative agency Wynken, Blynken & Nod, Hamburg, before starting a master’s degree at HAW University of Applied Sciences, Hamburg, that same year. For her project »Willkür & Drangsal«, she had five two-hour conversations with a friend, Luise Thoma, transcribed them and translated them into graphics and illustration. The piece earned her ADC’s »Grand Prix« and »Goldener Nagel« awards for best term paper of the year.
