Steffen Sauerteig (born in 1967) began his working life as an electrician and went on to build sets for East German television. He studied Visual Communication at the College of Fine Art in Berlin from 1991-96. He moved to Vancouver in 2009.
eBoy was founded in 1997 by Kai Vermehr, Steffen Sauerteig and Svend Smital with the acquisition of the eBoy.com domain. The basic idea driving eBoy was the embracement of the new possibilities of the emerging digital world. The decision to directly work on and for the screen led to the use of pixels. A modular based work system started to develop and resulted in complex object rich artwork.
eBoy is lucky to have worked with some of the finest clients and wll-known partners. Among them are Adidas, Coca Cola, DKNY, Google, Kidrobot, MTV, Nike, Pepsi, Paul Smith, The New York Times, Wired Magazine, Yahoo! and many many more.
eBoy currently is based in Berlin/Germany and in Vancouver/Canada.
