Born 1988 in Cologne to a furniture conservator and an instrument builder and musician, he was exposed to arts, craft and entrepreneur­ship throughout his childhood.

A visit at the house of one of his hero's Adrian Frutiger consolidated his fasci­nation for Swiss graphic design and ultimately lead to his studies at the prestigious ECAL (University of Art and Design Lausanne) where he graduated in 2011 with a diploma in Visual Communication.

Alongside his studies he interned at Bureau Borsche, worked for 032c magazine and founded his own publication Better Mjstakes.
After graduating Hugo spent a powerful year at Meiré und Meiré being involved with clients including Kenzo Paris, GQ Italia, and Interview Magazine.

In 2013 he returned to independency working for local and international clients as well as pursuing personal projects while teaching at various educational and cultural institutions.

In 2015 Hugo joined 2x4 in their New York City office to work on a wide range of projects for clients including Fondazione Prada, Miu Miu, Hyundai and Sies Marjan.
In the same year he had an exhibition of his work and was awarded as a 2015 Young Gun by the Art Director's Club in NYC.

In 2017 Hugo decided to focus on his own projects and studio again and works for clients throughout the world, while publishing his own magazine Present which was released in 2019.

In 2021 he worked for Apple and released the second issue of Present, alongside publishing a regular Newsletter.
