👋 I’m Benjamin Schubert,

a designer of many things across multiple platforms. Currently working as Head of Design at non-profit newsroom CORRECTIV in Berlin.

I have been working as a designer for more than ten years. Following a training as a media designer I completed a Bachelor’s degree in communication design. I worked in publishing, market research, digital marketing and founded a coworking space for artists in Berlin.

My work at CORRECTIV was awarded with the Grimme Online Award, the Helmut Schmidt Journalistenpreis, the Deutsch-Französischer Journalistenpreis, the BlaueBoje, the Dr. Georg Schreiber Medienpreis and the Otto Brenner Preis für kritischen Journalismus.

Since 2020 I’m based in Lübeck.
