UMBRELLA PINE _

FROM BARCELONA
WITH LOVE

We are an owner-operated, internationally active publishing and creative studio based in Barcelona, established in 2021 by Meike Gerlach and Norman Beckmann.

We can draw on many years of experience in the fields of independent publishing, media production and design. Before we founded »UMBRELLA PINE« we managed the design book publishing house »NBVD« in Hamburg, Germany.

With »UMBRELLA PINE« we have now realized our personal ideals of a modern working in the creative industry.

WE DELIVER & LIVE
INDIVIDUALITY

For us, it’s expedient to operate dynamic, flexible, free, inspired, concentrated and collaborative.

That’s why we have produced the perfect working atmosphere and system for ourselves to give you our best for each project. We work mobile, attentive and if needed with the support of a large and powerful international network of external professionals.

Individuality is shaped by individuality.

PARTNERSHIP + -

WE TRUST IN PARTNERSHIPS: Our work is no black-box. We believe in a togetherness between you and us, encounters and dialogues, honesty and openness. A strong partnership and confidence creates the best results and thereby satisfaction for all sides.
