“in nihilo” was created to serve those who enjoy blending creative virtual communication with the arts.

In 2006, Maria Spahn, who holds a degree as set designer from Central St. Martins in London successfully launched “uberraum” with fashion designer Kai von Ahlefeld. “uberraum” specialises in creating event concepts and digital content for luxury brands.  In 2013, she has joined forces with Thuy Nguyen, a professional photographer from Paris, to merge 3D digital art, film, photography and audio into an ambitious concept of virtual reality presentation, public relations, corporate design, product placement on social media.

Effective communication has many facets, from strategy to realisation, and many platforms, from traditional presentation to the internet, all of which are enshrined in nihilo. We would appreciate earning your trust and building a candid working relationship to render your company even more successful.
