The Creative

carina wachsmann

Creative director, senior art director, photographer and film director with 15 years of international work experience in branding, design, visual communication and advertising.

I’ve worked for all kind of agencies, traditional and digital, on all kinds of clients and projects. I’ve had the good fortune to work on a wide range of global brands as well as young, innovative companies. I believe that communication has the power to influence culture and shape behaviors. 

I have a BA in Media design and fine arts from University in Germany and an awarded scholarship at the Cleveland Institute of Art / US. I have lived and worked 8 years in Rome, and reside in Paris since 2013. I collaborate with fashion brands, production companies and major advertising agencies on global integrated campaigns for their clients on national and international level.

I combine my work experience in advertising, branding and design with my skills and passion in photography, film directing and storytelling to deliver powerful, integrated communication solutions. I have a keen eye on detail, high affinity with visual arts, strategic agility, drive for result and always push the envelope. I’ve collaborated with well-known film directors on international film and tv productions (Spike Lee, Ron Howard, Joseph Kosinski, Johnny Green).
