We live the creative lifestyle – since 1987.



It all began in 1987 at Spaldingstraße in Hamburg.

Our first logo from 1987 was heavily influenced by the school’s illustrative orientation. Interestingly, a massive steel pencil also adorned the facade of the htk academy’s building on Adenauerallee in Hamburg for many years.

In 2001, the htk academy opened its doors near Anhalter Bahnhof in Berlin, creating a new academy in the creative heart of the German capital.

Over the years, the htk academy has steadily grown, leading to changes in facilities and locations. However, one thing has remained constant: wherever the htk academy has found its home, a new creative place has emerged.
