I started with 18. Moved to Düsseldorf and attended an apprenticeship at Grey Worldwide. After a half a year learning the job of an account executive mostly on Procter & Gamble brands I switched over to the creation department. I never went back to marketing consulting. Over 2 years I learned the work of an art director. I helped along with big TV advertising campaigns as well as small online ads and got to see everything that happens in the seconds biggest agency in Germany.
With 21 I did my own first global print campaign for Toshiba. I worked for numerous national and international clients such as: Pringles, Febreze, Toppits, Handelsblatt, Vitasprint or Dr. Best. After my time in the big agency I decided to study design at the University of Applied Science in Düsseldorf. While studying I worked in a small digital agency based in Bavaria called 4c media. While my time at 4c media I have mostly worked with clients from the bike industry. Over 5 years I was the leading art director for CUBE Bikes. At 4c media I gained a lot of experience in the development and execution of online projects as well as large catalog productions. Currently I am an art director at Mutabor in Hamburg with a major focus on brand spaces and brand experience.
