Group Creative Director, Design Director
Every agency needs a cool, contemplative European character with an accent. For us, that’s Markus. He started with Luckie in 2010, and lends his unique, studied perspective to every project he touches. Markus’s career has spanned the globe. He studied graphic design and advertising in Sydney, Australia, then worked in Australia and Germany before moving to the U.S.
During his time in Australia and Germany, he provided art and creative direction for several on- and offline projects. Markus brings Luckie the best of both worlds: a strong traditional design background and years of digital experience that have translated into award-winning work across multiple online channels. His impressive lineup of past clients includes Deutsche Telekom AG, UniCredit, OM Strategic Investments, Activest, Lamy, Jägermeister, Siemens, Vodafone, TV Movie, Red Bull, Audi and BMW. He has been responsible for creative output and increasing the level of excellence at agencies such as Harcus Design, Berger Baader Hermes, Sapient Munich and now Luckie (fortunately for us). His ironclad work ethic and creative agility make him a valuable asset to any campaign, from nostalgic to mechanical and scientific.
When you work with Markus, it’s easy to see that he gets fired up about any form of design. He’s motivated by interesting and challenging design projects and clients who are open to hearing fresh ideas. Not only that, but he’s an ace leader who’s constantly inspiring his team to learn more and stretch their skills further.
