NEW DIRECTOR CREATION COMES FROM DDB
Düsseldorf, 28 January 2016 – New year, new goals, new model. Kontrast Communication Services kicks off 2016 with a top personality: Patrick Lindner will now head up the Creation unit of the Düsseldorf-based agency, together with Christian Vöttiner.
Patrick Lindner began his career as a copywriter at the Düsseldorf-based creative workshop Rempen & Partner and BMZ!FCA. Stations as creative supervisor at BBDO Düsseldorf and creative director at TBWA Hamburg followed. He then became a member of the executive board of the Düsseldorf/Hamburg-based agency Vasata Schröder Florenz and most recently was creative director at DDB R in Bonn, where he exclusively handled the Deutsche Telekom account.
The 47-year old brings to the table a wide range of experience with such major international brands as Wrigley, Pepsi, Mars, Henkel International and Nivea. His work has received several awards, among others, the ADC Nägel award, accolades at the New York Festival, “Das Plakat” and the FAB Award.
Since the beginning of this year, Patrick Lindner has been the new Director Creation at Kontrast. In a dynamic duo with Christian Vöttiner, he leads the Creation unit of the continuously growing agency. “Thanks to his creative reputation and experience, from now on Patrick will make a noticeable difference not only with our regular clients but also on new acquisitions, while also further honing our creative potential,” explains Joachim Fischer, CEO and founder of Kontrast Communications Services. “Dual creative leadership with Christian Vöttiner at his side is the ideal solution for us, as the trained art director and trained copywriter complement each other perfectly, both on a professional level and personally. So we’re ready for 2016 and some all-new creative dimensions.”
