+ view Résumé

Max Pilwat is a Multidisciplinary Creative and Art Director. 
He’s originally from Düsseldorf, Germany, but hopped continents and cultures throughout the past eight years. 

After cutting his teeth at German hot-shop Jung von Matt he landed an opportunity with Wieden + Kennedy where he spent the past four years, working as a Creative mainly on Nike out of the Shanghai, London and Tokyo offices.

Max likes to come up with simple ideas that matter and make people talk. No matter the scale, no matter the format. Having paid rent and improved his creative toolbox in Hamburg, Beijing, New York, Shanghai + London he’s currently based back in Europe.
