Hi! I am Amaia, an art director from Madrid now based in Hamburg.

I studied advertising and PR in Madrid and Vienna. After graduating I was a Community Manager and a Media Planner Intern, what was enough to prove myself I need creativity in my life. That’s why I enrolled in Miami Ad School and spent two years developing all my creative skills. Then I decided I wanted to start my career abroad, so I moved to Hamburg and I have being working for different agencies and brands, such as Ikea, Audi and Jägermeister.

In my spare time I like traveling, watching films, drawing, organizing my Pinterest, accumulating paper stuff and trying new food and restaurants. Oh! And of course learning German.
