Christian Ruess is a Berlin based Creative Director and Founder of Studio Christian Ruess. While he considers himself a hybrid creative with wide experience in conception and photography, his work revolves around merging subjects like advertising, lifestyle and technology into one a single piece of awesomeness. Consequently his work has reaped major awards including Clio, Cannes Lions, ADC and NY Festival.
Chris started his career in 2006 as a designer at Jung von Matt. In the same year, he was part of a small team that created the largest and most successful music and art festival in Northern Germany – MS Dockville – which ran for over ten years. After a quick stint as an Art Director at Philipp & Keuntje, he decided to work independently and started his freelance career. One year later, in 2013, Chris founded and curated his own exhibition series, labelled Container Love which in the meantime has evolved to become a content platform for up-and-coming photographers to showcase their work.
And finally – in 2019 – Chris officially founded his Studio Christian Ruess – creating campaigns, shoots and experiences for brands, products and smart people.
