Josef Chladek

Born 1968 in Vienna, master in Physics (Vienna University of Technology).

Lives, works, and builds a library in Vienna, Austria.

Over the past 25 years I have worked in different positions for many major online media in Austria (trend, profil, Kurier, autorevue, WirtschaftsBlatt,,, ...) including as a web developer, project manager, sales manager and as an executive director.

In 2013, I co-founded FC Chladek Drastil GmbH. We are developing web projects for publishing-houses (e.g. Styria, ), book-solutions (this site and for example), photo projects ( , ) and a lot of other interesting stuff...

I'm a passionate reader and book lover – especially of photo books, books about architecture, Dadaism, expressionism, modern literature, just to name a few.

I love my wife and my two boys!
