Otto Steininger lives and works as a graphic designer, illustrator and animator in New York City. His work has appeared in The New Yorker, The New York Times, Business Week, The Washington Post, The Wall Street Journal, the BBC and many other publications throughout the United States, Canada, Europe and Japan and has won numerous awards.
He has also designed a couple of watches for Swatch and a book on rubber. Other projects include a campaign for Nike in Toronto, an animated TV spot for a Beethoven-Festival in Portugal and Japan as well as some iPad-specific animation.
One of his more unusual projects was a two-month stay with the United Nations’ mission in East Timor to design posters, murals and other graphics as the country was gearing up to its first democratic elections.
Outside of work Otto invents cooking recipes and tries them out on his friends. No fatalities so far.
