I'm Fernando Silvestrin, a multidisciplinary creative freelancer based in Hamburg, Germany. My skills range from traditional art direction to filmmaking and digital marketing. With over 15 years of experience as an art director for ad agencies, I was nominated student of the year in 2010 by Lürzer's Archive Magazine and recognized as one of the best young advertising creatives in Germany 2013 by Cannes Young Lions. I'm currently available for freelance work.

I write once a month a newsletter called the "Corporate Slalom", where I share articles about idleness, work culture, and the tyranny of cubicle jobs. Want to try?
