ABOUT ME

Hi! My name is Thomas Carls from Hamburg/Germany. I have been working in design and advertising for over ten years, since 5 years as a freelancer. I offer creative & art direction for brands, agencies & startups. Sometimes I do everything from beginning to end, sometimes as a small gear. I have a background in print but have moved towards digital stuff, that´s what I do most. Every now and then I work as photographer.

In my last permanent position I worked as an art director and later as digital creative director for Kolle Rebbe on clients like Nike and Lufthansa.

Beside that I climbed every summit of Germany´s 16 states, creating content for the german railway company with the project “16 Grüne Gipfel“. 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.
