Creative Director JWT Hamburg
Kirsten was born in England and grew up in Johannesburg, South Africa. She decided early on to study Graphic Design because of her artistic ability. After an initial misconception that a career in advertising meant sketching all day long, she had her first real idea and has been hooked ever since.
After eight years of art direction for award-winning agencies such as TBWA Hunt Lascaris which earned her Cannes gold, she combined her love of art with that of travel and spent two years in the Middle East gaining her first experiences in regional communication. From there, she worked in London at Young & Rubicam before moving on to Germany. The Audi account at Saatchi & Saatchi Frankfurt yielded a silver Lion amongst other awards. She has spent the past four years living, working first at Scholz & Friends and now as Creative Director for JWT in Hamburg.
