SANTACLARA

DIGITAL CROSSOVER CAMPAIGN FOR LIDL

This goes out to all the delight bringers, turkey stuffers, cake bakers, Christmas makers, pudding haters. To all you bearded women, men in high heels, gender breaking gorgeous ones. Within a context of still-up-to-dateness, I almost see it as my duty to fight for more tolerance and against stigma – nowadays more than ever. I celebrate pride and equal gender marriage – cause yes, gender is an everyday concern which is finally and still so very important. Look at my Container Love Art Project. And there is still so much more going wrong in society.

But for now, let’s start with Christmas. In 2016, a group of likewise minded developed a Christmas story full of joy and justice. Überground. New. Different. Supercool. They got one question for you: Why is it that every year again Mister Coca Cola legend himself, Santa Claus, gets all the fame?

So let’s wake up! And do a reality check: Ain’t it the women who do all the work – most of the time, the mothers, grannies, wives and wonder women who cope with all the stress? Well it’s definitely not the fat white-bearded man! Polish your red shoes, wonderful women, marvelous ma’ams, greatest grannies and fantastic females. Raise your glass, ladies. And step aside, old man. It’s time for #santaclara – born to reign an era of equality, sing out loud for justice, and finally gonna make a change.

The message behind? Be proud of yourself, girls. We are. This campaign started for Lidl, and – hell yeah! – #santaclara sweeps the board all over the world since then.

THE SOUL HAS NO GENDER

EDITORIAL FOR OE MAGAZINE

Planningtorock‘s song ‘Let’s talk about gender baby’ was the starting point for this editorial. Perception and truth have little to do with one another and everything to do with the resulting images. (taken from OE Magazine)

For this series we were working with the art of collages to underline the gender theme. Because no matter if you’re a boy or a girl or something between, life can be sweet to all of us. This lingerie series were shown in several magazines like OE Magazine or Kaltblut Magazine as well as on some exhibitions.

And now listen to the stunning song.

KAFFEE IST NICHT KAFFEE

TVC campaign for Tchibo

Three years of exhausting day-to-day work for the Jung von Matt / Elbe client Tchibo Non-Food were quite a good practice to create this “Kaffee ist nicht Kaffee” TVC series for Jung von Matt/brand activation. From Bad Nauheim to Tansania: We placed real sales ladies in the centre of our campaign – to connect the customer with the company. We turned them into unmistakeable brand ambassadors.
