HELLO.

I am an award winning Freelance Art & Creative Director, based in Berlin, working all over the universe. I create experiences and stories, campaigns and designs, for brands and products, from draft to realization.

My intention is to overlap and transform different subjects like advertising, design and art. I collaborate with agencies, photographers, artists and intelligent people to initiate and promote projects independently. What you get is my experienced intuition, curiosity and a splash of punk.

In detail: creative direction, art direction, innovative ideas & concept, looks & imagery, brand communication, corporate communication, 360° multichannel marketing campaigns, tv commercials, social media & storytelling, dialog marketing, editorial design & catalogues, look books & magazines, supervision @ photo shoots (fashion, people, lifestyle).
