My home turf are brand strategy, identity, positioning, narrative and creative expression – as well as day-to-day brand management.
My playground is the world of brands – big and small.
My building blocks are brand leadership, value and growth, creative brand expression and audience impact.
I have worked as part of some of the industry’s leading brand, digital and communication agencies. My client work spans from advising global DAX-corporations in brand leadership, positioning and communications, to helping young brands establish their identity and gain momentum.
Over the years, I have established an astute sense for brand potential and specialized in creating healthy, value-driven brand footprints in audiences’ relevant brand sets.
I put my ideas and insights into writing, publishing perspectives ranging from business, brand, individualization to cultural developments. Sometimes I venture into photojournalism and visual storytelling.
I am Co-Founder and Co-Host of The Creative Insider, a platform helping creatives navigate their way to becoming creative professionals.

She is an incredibly thoughtful and intelligent professional, helping us to avoid doing everything “just because”, really thinking through what we want our company to represent, and how we want our company to communicate through social media, events, and branding.
Not enough business owners take a step back and think about their marketing as carefully or thoroughly as Désirée has helped us to do.
