Hi, my name is Jacqueline, Jackie, Jacky, Jaqui, Jack or somehow different. I am a Creative Director at OLIVER agency. Never heard of OLIVER? Whilst all other agencies sit apart from clients, we build dedicated agencies inside their clients’ worlds. Means we start by understanding our clients challenges from the inside. https://www.oliver.agency/ Before I became member of OLIVER I was able to gain a lot of experience in agencies like Serviceplan, plan.net and Scholz & Friends as an Art Director in Munich and Hamburg. Looking forward to meet you at CONNECTIONS!
What was your very first job? What does it feel like to look back at it now?
Dog sitting. Got no money for that. Still love having dogs around me.
Please describe, in your own words, what your current job is and what work it entails.
I am responsible for all art directional, copywriting, concept stuff we do plus a lot of recruiting at the moment. Our OLIVER agency team inside Unilver Hamburg is like a start up – it’s growing. :)
How did you discover that the creative world is right for you? Was there a time in your life that you credit to this discovery? Which train of events did bring you to where you are today?
As a child I loved to draw. I don't know if I could do it as well today. But I still have a lot of fun doing creative work together in a team – that’s why I never decided becoming a freelancer until now.
In your constantly growing and expanding industry, how and where do you usually find inspiration to keep your work fresh, innovative and relevant?
In everything and nothing. I think one of the biggest part I get inspired from is communication. A good trick also for me is having a break and then coming back to the task.
If you had to pick one piece of work or project that you are most proud of, especially for the creative work and innovation it required rather than its recognition or industry success, what would it be?
Getting along very well with Powerpoint as a creative.
