"That's quite a nice bunch of people, but they're all nuts, right?"
Jens – ThumbnailJens

Jens

Founder, Chief Creative Lunatic/Concept

Jens has a degree in German and French law, was a singer in London, played in daily soaps, had photo exhibitions in Frankfurt and London, only to end up in the advertising business. Jens learned to be a copywriter at Springer & Jacoby, then became Creative Partner at kempertrautmann (now "thjnk"), then Executive Creative Director at Kolle Rebbe and was finally crazy enough to start a new agency. It´s a shame, he really could have become something.

Matze – ThumbnailMatze

Matthias Erb

Founder, Chief Creative Lunatic/Digital

Matthias has won hundreds of creative awards, gained about 2000 years of experience in the best German creative agencies, invented the city portal Sunremo and founded Wynken Blynken & Nod in 2015. Matthias just goes for it. He puts his headphones over his splinter-free curls, lets a little fairy dust waft through his Mac and: DONE. While others are still talking about how damn good the solution has to be, he already has it. Result of his unshakable optimism. He also needs that in his private life: he drives a 1988 VW T3.

Tim – ThumbnailTim

Tim Keller

Managing Director, Chief Strategic Lunatic

Tim loves the mountains and lives in flat Hamburg. Doesn't sound like his most effective strategy, but that´s kind of Tim´s method: contrasts become a new whole. He likes hot showers and ice swimming. Precise German language and English marketing gibberish. Tim is inspired by the tweets of his bots and the blah blah blah of his neighbouring passengers on the tube. Because he enjoys combining so much, he has already brought his brand knowledge to a digital agency and then his digital knowledge to a brand agency. And now he has landed in an agency where he can do all this. Except ice swimming maybe. But our next field trip is definitely coming.




Nadine – ThumbnailNadine

Nadine Hernandez

Human Resources

Nadine even asks you how you are when the conversation actually is about how she is. Not for blank suavities like "Fine, thank you!", but for the truth. With the gentle voice of a yoga teacher and the instinct of a profiler she finds a solution for everything and everyone. Along the way she constantly optimizes our processes and our mood. For example, with mountains of ice cream from her favorite dealer. Nadine not only thinks along with us, but above all always thinks of others. That's why her friends couldn't stop nodding when she decided to move from media design to our HR department. Obviously we also nodded immediately. We have no idea how we found Nadine without Nadine to be honest. But there she is – lucky us.

Daniel – ThumbnailDaniel

Daniel Patterson

Creative Director/Art

During his training and studies Daniel never lingered in one place for too long: Hannover, Celle, Goslar, Celle, Lüneburg, Hamburg, England, Hamburg. Whew. Here he became settled for a few years. However not to come down, but to work his way up and win creative prices up until becoming creative director. When not sitting at his office desk, Daniel is still constantly on the road. Either pretty fast on his KTM, or a little more eased in the Canadian wilderness. Then, he is really relaxed and his pulse goes down to 200.

Michi – ThumbnailMichi

Michael Lautner

Creative Lunatic/Text

Michael is our obligatory Austrian. With an estimated resting heart rate of 35, nothing can upset him so easily - even though he is surrounded by Prussians all day long. There are only two things that really get Lautner Michi going. 1. someone who does not like Ryan Gosling 2. the steep mountains in his home country. Wait, there´s another one: a very good idea on a tricky brief. An Austrian speciality isn´t it, Michi?

Nene – ThumbnailNene

Verena „Nene“ Zirngibl

Working student/Art

Since her little sister learned to "talk", Verena goes by Nene. And for Nene a good day begins with a golden Kiwi. Or with gold at the German ADC awards, where she won the Junior Grand Prix with her term paper. Nene started with us as a 360° intern, whose curiosity even drove her to the account office for one day. We are glad it wasn´t quite her thing since Nene's true calling is creativity. She likes to put bouquets on the scanner and turn them into eternal works of art for instance. But only until new ideas start blossoming in her head.

Basti – ThumbnailBasti

Sebastian Weber

Creative Director/Copy

If Sebastian were a villain in the Marvel universe, he would be "Mr. Gadget". This is because he is regularly supplied with new toys. Like the electric skateboard he uses to roll into the agency. He also has an inflatable pedal boat for the Alster river, an e-mountain bike for his bad knee, and guaranteed more than one game console in his living room. But his favorite tool is the keyboard of his laptop. He uses it to write copies that win creative prizes and hearts. And of course, he also orders new toys with it.

Franzi – ThumbnailFranzi

Franziska Sonntag

Senior Account Manager

With Franziska, every day feels like Sunday: people are relaxed and there´s hardly any work to do. Because Franziska takes care of everything. She acquired the necessary skills at the Berufsakademie Hamburg with a degree in business administration and then perfected them at the city's finest classical and digital agencies. Briefings, timing, processes, costs, the best Franzbrötchen in town - Franziska takes care of it. Sounds boring? Then you should witness how Franzi fights for good creation. There goes the Sunday peace. Then the North German serenity yields to a storm over the lowlands. But only briefly.

Muff3 – ThumbnailMuff3

Muhamed „Muff“ Braimi

Creative Lunatic/Art

Muff made his first big journey before he was even born. In his mother's womb, he went straight from the Balcan War to Hamburg Wilhelmsburg. Thanks Mom! Without her, the biggest Nintendo fan of all times would probably not have ended up with us. While gambling online, Muff not only discovered new worlds, but also his girlfriend from Sweden. Next level: stop gaming, start packing. Muff's nickname is inspired by the European mouflon ram. Long story. He might tell you about it on his next long journey, or in his next short film. And Action!

Andrea – ThumbnailAndrea

Andrea Rahmeyer

Office Management

Shadows are usually black. Andrea has one in white. He is called Momo and only leaves her side in front of the toilet door. However, Andrea manages to deal with it and takes care of the whole office simultaneously. She reminds, finds, ensures, secures, hugs, tugs and sheds a light on so many topics. The distinctive radiant smile on her face that only fades when craftsmen don't do their job as well as Andrea does her own. In that case, she can make fully-fledged men get a move on. As we say, with Andrea everything just works.

Lara T – ThumbnailLara T

Lara Timm

Group Head Account Management

Lara loves her job so much even a broken knee won't stop her from doing it. Solid bones are easier to break than her spirit. Fortunately, her knee is fine again. And, how are we? Great since Lara is with us. For once, because she pulls jokes faster than you can say "meeting culture" (her favorite word). But also, because a situation that leaves Lara unsettled has yet to be invented. Which is hardly surprising. After all she has spent twelve years in the best agencies fighting for clients and ideas. After a well-deserved victory, she relaxes with French fries and a glass of Crémant. That's alright. We have our creative lunatics for the really good ideas.

Selina – ThumbnailSelina

Selina Sterzl

Working Student/Art

Selina doesn´t like pizza. We didn't know that was possible either. But okay, more pizza for us. When it comes to work it´s the other way round: Selina doesn´t leave much for others. That´s because Selina is incredibly structured and efficient. When she's not preparing a shoot or finds outstanding design solutions, she lives out her passion for style guides. And she is just as conscientious in the gym, or when a bat gets lost in her drainpipe. She approaches everything with logic, precision and heart. That is why the bat made it out of the pipe alive. If we get lost, we already know exactly who we will call.

Vanessa – ThumbnailVanessa

Vanessa Fehst

Junior Art Director

Vanessa tries every day to not dress all black. Unfortunately, on most days her closet doesn´t leave her with other options. Inconsistent? Then watch Vanessa at the office. There is practically nothing she doesn´t see through. Vanessa relentlessly designs, animates, paints and tinkers until she finds the right solution. Unsurprisingly, she goes by “The Machine”. When it comes to food, she is just as unyielding. Being a convinced vegetarian she even does without her beloved salami. If you happen to know a meatless alternative that doesn't taste of nothing, please contact us: salami@wynken.com. As far as we concern, this is the only thing Vanessa has not figured out yet.

Lara Linn – ThumbnailLara Linn

Lara Linn

Junior Account Manager

Cocaine is so 1980. And since Lara is a child of the nineties, she knows a much better drug: checkmarks. She is addicted to ticking off tasks on her to-do lists. And there are many of them, because Lara is a doer. Getting stuff done makes her so happy, we actually only know her in a good mood. Also, she is incredibly helpful. Good for her: even more to-dos for her list. If there's nothing more to do at work, Lara simply continues at home. On her boyfriend's farm, she never runs out of work. Great colleague and great junior account manager? Check!

The only thing missing is you.
