Serial entrepreneur, Oliver Kray (born 1981), is founder and CEO of MyPostcard.
I’ve been self-employed since I was 18 years old, back then with graffiti jobs and facade designs. Then, later, as a product designer, licensor and in 2007 with a social media agency.
For over 20 years, Oliver Kray has worked as an artist and designer in various segments of the interior industry and has been awarded several facade prizes, including the prestigious German Fassadenpreis. After his studies in fashion design at the renowned Lette-Verein in Berlin, he founded his first company and launched his own children’s
fashion collection on the European market under the label, “Colors of Berlin”. Oliver Kray then worked as a product designer
for major brands such as LEONARDO Glass, Rasch Wallpaper, Audi and Sixt. In 2012, he designed several designer bakeries for the Berlin-based self-service bakery chain, MaitreBack. His colorful facade artworks adorn single- and multi- family homes, hotels and corporate buildings throughout Germany. One very extensive project was the world’s largest Mercedes star, which he sprayed onto the roof of the Mercedes-Benz Arena in Berlin within two weeks.
In May 2014, Oliver Kray founded the postcard app, MyPostcard, and launched the Berlin-based start-up initially as a one-man show and personal challenge. With his experience and focus on innovation and digitalization, Oliver Kray is constantly driving the global expansion and product enhancement of MyPostcard.
Oliver Kray lives and works in Berlin and New York and still works as a freelance designer alongside MyPostcard.
Over the last 15 years, I’ve founded several companies already, and mostly for the same reason: I always wanted to do something better or different, combined with what I am good at. At MyPostcard, I was ready to put my creativity and passion for tech into a new project.
