Hi, nice to meet you!

I am Cerstin Hannestad,

a passionate Berlin based Creative Director.


Since the last 8 years I am self-employed, working as a freelance Creative Director for agencies and my own clients. I love supporting Startups in brand building and to guide and inspire them throughout their creative processes.

I look back on over a decade of experience in international advertising agencies like Ogilvy & Mather, McCann Erickson and Publicis Group. 

I have worked for national and international clients such as Coca Cola, Nestlé, IKEA, o2 Telefónica, L'Oreal, MAYBELLINE New York, LIDL, Media Markt Germany, DM, TOTAL as an Art Director, Copy Writer and Content Creative.

High work ethics & standards characterize me. I am a big communicator, reliable, focussed and caring. New teams and tasks excite me and I am constantly looking for new smart tools & techniques to learn.

Traveling is my passion. You will most likely find me on some food market around the world, trying new things 'at least once'. Picnics with friends are my thing. Being by the sea soothes me. I am into psychology and coaching. Living a healthy lifestyle is important to me. I run. I exercise. I practice yoga, mindfulness and mediation.

Always ready for the next adventure...

Let's find a challenge to manage and grow upon together!
