Every month the organizers of Ladies, Wine & Design hold an event where women from the design and advertising industry exchange ideas over a glass of wine. Initiated by Jessica Walsh, the event now takes place in over 250 cities worldwide. Last week we were allowed to host this event and provided our auditorium as a location for a four-hour, stimulating discussion.
The theme of the event was automobility. Christina Fleuch (Art Director of thjnk), Hella Fekete (Senior Art Director Digital, Grabarz & Partner) and Nina Wiemer (Executive Creative Director, Mutabor) spoke about their experiences in this industry accompanied by moderator Marle-Maria Janßen (Head of Strategy, Mutabor). First, Antje Adamovsky (Senior Art Director Motion Design, Mutabor) shared her insights into our current automotive projects. Nina Wiemer: “My personal dream for our industry is to see many more women at the top. Diversity not only strengthens our industry and makes it more inclusive, but also improves creation. At the moment, there is often a lack of female role models who can show career paths to young female designers”.
