Group Creative Director, Brand development, based in Los Angeles
Born, raised and schooled in Germany, Matthias came to the United States to broaden his horizon and to experience a diverse culture and different perspective on design. He brings a European design sensibility and marries it with strategic thinking to create unexpected yet relevant design.
After finessing his design and corporate identity skills at the top tier firm Wir Design in Braunschweig, Germany, Matthias joined Interbrand New York in 1999 to learn the tools of the branding trade. At Interbrand, he created, managed and implemented extensive branding programs for a range of international companies, including British Telecom, Deloitte Consulting, and IMS Health. In 2003, Matthias decided to go west and since settling in Santa Monica, he has collaborated with a number of agencies on a variety of projects, ranging from the rebranding for the cable network OLN to the development of a visual design system for eBay’s global marketplace.
Matthias is an accomplished communications designer and branding specialist with extensive experience in the creation, development, and implementation of comprehensive branding programs in all relevant types of media. His exceptional strategic, conceptual, and creative capabilities coupled with his attention to detail and dedication to the job will ensure that the result of an assignment will be unique design that meets critical business objectives.
Driven by curiosity, Matthias is eager to learn through new experiences and by embracing different points of view. In his free time, he enjoys crafting three-dimensional objects or simply working up a sweat on the soccer field.
