Illustrator and book designer Robert Nippoldt has a degree in graphic arts and illustration from the Münster University of Applied Sciences. His book trilogy on America in the 1920s and 1930s garnered many awards and critical acclaim, same as "Night falls on the BERLIN of the Roaring Twenties". In addition he has been touring from stage to stage with his revue show "A mysterious shimmer".

The illustrator and children’s book author Christine Nippoldt supports Studio Nippoldt with her sharp eye and expertise in animated film. Since her studies at the Bauhaus University in Weimar, she writes and illustrates books for children and adults. Projects near and dear to her heart can be found under her pseudonym, Lilli L‘Arronge.

The visual artist and sculpture Reinhard Fichtner adds the third dimension to Studio Nippoldt.
