Hello, my name is Thomas Carls from Hamburg/Germany. I have been working in design and advertising for over ten years. In april 2013 I started freelancing. I offer creative & art direction for agencies and companies. During the last few years I worked as an art director and later as digital creative director for Kolle Rebbe on clients like Nike and Lufthansa.

In 2012 I climbed every summit of Germany´s 16 states, creating content for the german railway company with the project “16 Grüne Gipfel“. In 2013 I curated the retro game exhibition “We Love 8 Bit” featuring more than 40 artists in Hamburg, which could also be seen in Vienna/Austria and Berlin. Being a creative is more than a job to me.
