Work With Us

Coming from diverse cultural and professional backgrounds, the gestalten team is brought together through a collective interest of the creative world. The gestalten family is global and supported by an extensive network of contributors and industry-leading voices across creative fields. The seed of every gestalten idea begins in our Berlin headquarters in the heart of Kreuzberg. From the initial idea and concept to design, production to distribution, and communication to all things brand-related, our vision is brought together by a close network of individuals involved throughout.

The gestalten foundations have been built on publishing illustrated books. Over the course of 25 years, our influence has stretched beyond print to a range of different mediums as we aim to engage with the creative community in new and inspiring ways. We curate lasting and unique content across print and digital, collaborate with like-minded brands and organizations, plus bring the gestalten vision alive through events.

If you want to experience publishing first-hand, are interested in working within a close-knit group of creatives, or you are looking to join gestalten's growing narrative, then we look forward to hearing from you. We are always on the lookout for new opportunities and welcome applications through your own initiative. 

    Direct applications to work@gestalten.com.

    Proposals & Contributions

    At gestalten, we always welcome new book pitches, ideas, and projects.

    If you have a project that fits that gestalten aesthetic, join our Creative Pool. We are always interested in showcasing new, innovative, and interesting work. Sign up here.

    Do you have an idea for a book that fits the gestalten brand? Then send your proposal to proposals@gestalten.com. Please include a short abstract summarizing the content, a (prospective) table of contents, a list of (potential) contributors, and a selection of images to help us better understand the visual quality of the project as well as some background information about yourself.

    Have you created an original story or engaging illustrations that will be enjoyed by our younger Little Gestalten community? Then pitch your children's book idea to us or send your finished manuscript to littlegestalten@gestalten.com. Please bear in mind that we currently publish for children aged 3 and above, covering picture books, non-fiction, novelty, pop-ups, and more. The subject matter should be relevant to the target age group and the written and visual quality must be in line with our Little Gestalten publications.

    If you are a writer with a fresh perspective who wants to contribute to our Journal, contact us at news@gestalten.com. Before you send us your pitch, please make sure you are familiar with the scope of our content and editorial direction. We want to celebrate creative life through the introduction of projects and personal endeavors. Your pitch should include an introduction to your story, your angle, why your subject is of interest to our audience, and why your perspective/access to the subject is exclusive or special. Please also link to your online portfolio and/or biography.
