With the support of the European Union Leonardo da Vinci scholarship Lorenz moved to London in 2012. After an internship at Fraser Muggeridge studio Lorenz worked at the graphic design studio Europa from 2013 to 2014 before joining Frieze Magazine and setting up his own practice in South East London. At Frieze, Lorenz works as Senior Designer with Art Director David Lane, who joined late 2016, after the departure of previous Art Director Sonya Dyakova.


After studying for five years at the Hochschule für Gestaltung Offenbach (Germany) with an exchange semester to Camberwell College of Arts (London, UK) in 2010, Lorenz received his Diplom (equivalent to a Masters degree) in Visual Communication with Distinction in 2012. During his studies Lorenz attended the classes of Prof. Klaus Hesse (Undergraduate) and Prof. Sascha Lobe (Masters).
