Hi, nice to meet you!

I am Cerstin Hannestad,

a passionate Berlin based Creative Director.

Who Am I?

Since the last 7 years I am self-employed.

I am working as a freelance Creative Director 

for agencies and my own clients.

I support startups in brand building, positioning their products on the market and lead their creative teams.


I look back on over 10 years 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, MediaMarkt Germany, DM, TOTAL as an Art Director Digital and Content Creative.

High quality work ethics & standards characterize me.

I did learn to deliver quick & dirty, too - as you wish!

I love to work with people and am known for my great communication skills. I am reliable, focussed and caring.

I know myself well, with all talents and flaws.

New situations and environments excite me.

I love to learn new tools & techniques.

Meeting new teams and challenges fuel me.

In my private life am a foody.

Traveling is my passion.

You can find me on all around the world

- trying new food 'at least once'!

I am drawn to people, psychology & coaching.

I love to organize fueling events to experience with friends.​

Living a healthy lifestyle is important to me.

I am a sporty spice. I run. I exercise.

I practice yoga, mindfulness and mediation.

Always ready for the next adventure!

Clients in food & beverages are preferably welcome!

I am excited! How can we actively enrich our lives?
