  • Hi, nice to meet you. My name is Melanie Achilles. I am a German graphic designer based in Berlin. On this site you can view my projects or download a selection of work examples.


    Open your suitcase, please…



    When travelling, I often ask myself what people might have in their suitcases. I started asking people at airports and train stations to show me what they take with them. I documented the open suitcases in a series of photos. Later I made a book out of the pictures and the notes these travellers wrote down for me. These notes contain details of their journeys but the faces of the people remain secret.
