Fork: Linderman’s work is commonly associated with the early experimental and commercial design projects at Fork Unstable Media, a design studio that he co-founded in Hamburg, Germany in 1996. He is currently the Creative Partner at Fork Unstable Media Ost, living and working in Berlin.

After studying Art and Design at the University of Wisconsin, he shifted his focus to Graphic Design, coupling the two interests and authoring pieces characteristic for its contextual juxtapositions of current events, language-nostalgia and perverted corporate vernacular.

In 1999, Linderman and partner Manuel Funk founded the Berlin studio Fork Unstable Media Ost. The studio has since been commissioned for artwork in printed media, animation, film and interactive installations for exhibitions at the Sonar Festival (Barcelona), Künstlerhaus Vienna, Micronanze Festival (Rome), Iconologica Festival (Alicante) and for the Austin Museum of Digital Art (AMODA). Three fork projects are included in the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (SFMOMA) permanent collection.

Current Fork clients include international roll-outs and promotions for Adidas, Nivea (International), Evian and Der Tagesspiegel or creative support for friends NOAH or the FC Saint Pauli Rugby.

In addition to creative direction in the Berlin studio, Linderman is a teaching professor at the Academy of Art and Design Offenbach for Graphic and Interactive Design since the spring of 2004.
