Jan Mathias Steinforth (born 1977 in Hannover, Germany) is a designer and director
based in New York City. He studied graphic design at University of Applied Arts
Hildesheim and the University of Madrid, Facultad de Bellas Artes. In 2002, he moved to
Madrid to work as an Art Director at the Graphic Studio Juan Dela Mata before moving to
Berlin in 2004 to work as a Freelance Designer and Animator. He currently lives in New
York working for the production company PSYOP. From 2002 to 2006 he was focusing on
animation, particularly the performance art of VJing. His visual style as a VJ has been
described as “deconstructionist abstract”, with three-dimensional objects creating
impressing effects of space and depth. His understanding of the art is deeply rooted in
the attempt to be able to immediately respond visually to any given auditive and
emotional situation. Next to his professional work he always tries to spend time on
collaborative projects, directing animated shorts and short clips. His recent works include
the projects PSST! Pass It On 1+2, Getty Images The Next Bid Idea and Advanced

various galleries and group shows around the South. Dosa moved to Atlanta his freshman
year in high school and went on to study graphic design at the Art Institute of Atlanta. He
studied at the Art Institute for 2 years and went on to work for a local design studio for a
year before continuing his education at the University of Georgia to study Digital Media
and Computer Animation. With a few of his peers in the UGA program, Dosa started a
small design firm called Ganymede Press in 2002. Ganymede closed its doors in 2004,
but since then he has set his sights on exploring content. Not limited to selling product or
services, Dosa strives to make commentaries on social issues of today. Much of his work
can be best described as whimsical and dark and minimal. Eastern influences abound in
much of his design / illustration work.
