United by the passion for creative crafts and reliable design, we create handmade design solutions for online and offline media - we are workaholiks.


...is a small, high quality design studio for graphic design located in Leipzig. Although we are a small agency, we are still capable of generating great ideas. With two resident designers, a few selected freelancers and our shared passion for graphic design and precise work - this is all we need to meet our targets and goals. We appreciate the close relationship with our clients and value the dialog between us. Resulting from that we create circumspect, bespoke designs and don’t mind getting up early in the morning or working through the night.

Our history

Our work began in 2003 as the design department of the agency Esoulate. It quickly created interest with agencies and promoters and our surroundings grew rapidly - so did our expectations. We therefore expanded our range of services and at the end of 2006, we opened as the independent design studio workaholiks™.

Our location

We are currently calling the Leipziger Konsumzentrale, located in the Leipzig distict of Plagwitz our home. This complex was build between 1929-1933 and was extensively renovated in 2000/2001 for the EXPO-Project "Plagwitz on the way into the 21st century" and put under protection. Now the Konsumzentrale is offering a modern and extraordinary work atmosphere not only for us but to other companies as well.
