CHRISTIAN SOLDATKE

Freelance Copywriter & Creative Director
online, offline, everyline

Online, offline, everyline – my nerdy copywriter way of saying that I create campaigns, copies, content for every imaginable media. TV and print? Yep. Digital and social media? Also yep. 360° and integrated? Hell yeah! You can even find my headlines on airplane vomit bags – the wet dream of every copywriter.

Copywriter? Actually, I'm creative first, copywriter second. I love to create ideas that can’t be squeezed into formats. That are based on relevant insights. That entertain people and change the world. You just want me to write a headline for a bumper sticker? Just gimme that pen. (Don’t. My handwriting is terrible, I'd better use my Macbook.) I can write and work in German and English. With a little help from Deepl, of course.

In the last 18 years I worked for some of the finest agencies, both as a Copywriter and as Creative Director. After work I was a teacher at the legendary Miami Ad School for 7 years. Along the way I have won numerous national and international awards. Still hunting that Cannes Lion though. 

I work for wild creative hotshops and international networks. For hip social media agencies and legendary design bureaus. For small start-ups and large companies. And for you. In Hamburg and wherever you need me. Alone or with one of my awesome art partners:
