“Human beings need stories.”
Christoph Bender is a Creative Director and Designer based in Duesseldorf/Germany. He was born in 1979 in the middle of nowhere, therefore always curious about inspiring stories. And he doesn’t like speaking about himself in third person.
As a creative I am looking for what lies at the very core of a brand, and how it relates to people and how it can be conveyed most effectively? Most importantly: How can I turn this true story into a seemless experience and tell it by all means it may need? With over 13 years of profound experience in global identity work and communications I continuously shape and refresh the visual stories of brands such as: E.ON SE, ERGO Group, thyssenkrupp AG, Stifterverband für die Deutsche Wissenschaft e. V., REWE Group, Denon & Marantz, ALDI SÜD, Universität zu Köln, Fitness First, Commerzbank AG, Media Broacast, Adolf Würth KG, Art Director’s Club Deutschland and Deutsches Elektronen Synchrotron among others.
Before starting bueroturbo as a freelance creative I was part of MetaDesign AG in Berlin/Duesseldorf as Creative Diretor, fischerAppelt, relations in Cologne also as Creative Director, KW43 Branddesign/GREY and Claus Koch™/BBDO in Duesseldorf and Jung v. Matt/brand identity in Hamburg.
As a designer, record collector, and a dedicated drummer, I am always looking for the perfect hookline.
