The family name Pook is written in Japanese in a katakana phonetic translation using the characters “pu” and “ku”. Katakana (Jap. 片仮名 or カタカナ) is a syllabary, a set of symbols that represent syllables. Besides hiragana, it is the second Japanese syllabary. Each katakana symbol stands as a syllabogram either for a vowel or a consonant with the following vowel. Since my wife is Japanese and my children are half Japanese I am trying to learn this language.

Project Work

While still studying, young talent can test their ability in a real-life commission environment and participate in this. Companies, individuals or NGOs who do not have the budget for a professional communication are given the chance to give shape to and realize unusual ideas with the help of young talent. Past projects include the development of communication tools for the NGO Borneo Orangutan Survival (BOS) in Germany, Listros e.V., book projects, and the magazine “Die Nummer”.
