Doris Matthäus

Born on May 2nd, 1963 in Erlangen.

Graphic design studies at the Technical School (FH) of Nuremberg.

Together with my friends I have been looking for "extraordinary games" already during my years of school and study. In those days we imported games from England since there wasn't much more than "Monopoly" in the German market at that time. "Quirks" and "Sorcerer's Cave" are two examples of English games we imported.

In 1987 I got to know Frank [Nestel] who already worked on some game prototypes back then. I immediately felt called upon realizing the graphics for those protoypes. In the beginning, my usual works as graphic designer mainly consisted of technical-graphical preparations for presentations at Siemens. Then for a while I did layout works for the travel book publisher Michael Müller. Via Frank's game publications in the self-publishing company "Spiele von Doris & Frank" (Games by Doris & Frank), I arrived on the games' scene and got in contact with other game publishers.
