Philipp Dietz
Creative Director

Philipp built super bowl ads, integrated and social campaigns, new business pitches, brand platforms, analog and digital experiences, product launches and media collaborations — positioning his clients as some of the most attractive and creative brands at the forefront of technology and design. Recently, he led the biggest product launch in history for Lexus at Saatchi & Saatchi — resulting in over 4.2 billion press impressions. Prior to that, Philipp has served as the Creative Director for L'Oréal, Converse, DvF, and Beats by Dre at AKQA in New York City and worked as a Creative Director at David & Goliath for Universal Studios and Kia, at Huge for Audi and Netflix and at DDB for Volkswagen and T-Mobile. Philipp started his career in Germany where he became the creative lead for the Mercedes-Benz digital and social campaigns at Jung von Matt, introducing the automotive brand’s first Instagram led launch, leading to the agency’s win for ‘Agency of the Year’ at the Cannes Lions. His creative work has been recognized by many industry award shows, including the Cannes Lions, the Art Directors Club and the One Show, and has been featured in press publications such as The New York Times, Vice, Dazed, Complex, Forbes, Hypebeast, Refinery29 and Vogue. Philipp is since 2020 a mentor for the One Club One School.

Jon King (Saatchi)
“Philipp is a pain in the ass. He’s not shy about calling bullshit on something. He’s willing to kill his own work at the 11th hour if he doesn’t feel it’s as good as it could be. He’s more than ready (and able) to call out a poorly chosen adjective. He seemingly has a strong, inviolable opinion on just about everything. He fights, pushes back, argues, and refuses to lower the bar. The result of all this is better work. Happy creative directors and clients. And a partner who appreciates his passion.”

James Cohen (TBWA)
“Philipp is one of my favorite partners of all time. An excellent human being and a top-shelf creative director. His approach is surgical and efficient, and his energy is infectious. Everybody loves him. Philipp has a brilliant eye for design, ridiculously good taste, and an aesthetic that will make even mediocre copy look like it’s brilliant. He can even write, which is saying a lot, coming from a lifelong writer. I am proud to be a friend, a fan, and a former colleague. I’d be lucky to work with him again. Until then, I’ll live vicariously through his stunning work and mesmerizing photography. Oh, also, he happens to be very funny, despite being German.”

Bahador Pakravesh (Jung von Matt)
“Philipp is one of the most efficient people I have worked with in my career. He was my partner at Jung von Matt and DDB. His brilliant and clear skills in strategic, analytic and creative work in all relevant channels have always impressed me. But above all that, he became a good friend of mine. And he has an excellent taste when it comes to finding the perfect lunch location. Thanks a lot for everything, buddy.”

Jonathan Lee (Huge)
“Philipp is a unicorn. He takes no corner blindly. And isn't afraid to take on that impossible brief. Having honed his skills in Germany at world class agencies and on world class brands, be prepared for jealousy-inducing ideas, concepts and designs. He and I have spent countless hours together and I can honestly say, he is one of the best creatives I have ever collaborated with. And he became a good friend. Also, presenting work with him in front of clients is the ultimate show. Highly entertaining and extremely successful. In other words, hire him.”

Chris DeNinno (David & Goliath)
“When I heard about this guy named Philipp. I was like, WTF is up with the extra P? — But when I met Philipp, I instantly understood why. Philipp gives it his all. And then some. I was lucky enough to work as partners with him at David & Goliath. Hands down, he is one of the friendliest, smartest, bravest, funniest, most -estiest guys I know. Throw a superlative at him and he wears it like a pro. He has an inextinguishable craving for his craft. Solving problems with surgical precision. And presenting to clients with honesty and ease. If you ever get the chance to work with Philipp, do it. He’s worth every P he’s got. Philipp is a great guy with amazing talents, and I can’t say enough good things about him.”
