Christian Ruess is a creative director, curator and photographer living in Berlin. Conceptualizing and executing at the same time, he collaborates with international brands, agencies and smart people, creating identities, campaigns and content across all platforms, in the fields of fashion, beauty, lifestyle and automotive.
His intention is to overlap different subjects like advertising, design and art. Depending on the dimensions of the projects, he can also access an excellent network of creative people to turn projects into individual pieces of greatness. Over the years, his concepts have cut through the noise and gained major awards including Clio, Cannes Lions, ADC and NY Festival.
