Matthäus Frost began his career at TBWA in Berlin in 2007 where he worked on international brands such as ABSOLUT, ADIDAS, APPLE and PLAYSTATION. (Shooting iPhone commercials for weeks in Hollywood studios as a junior art director still is one of his best memory of that time.) From 2009 to 2014 he was with SERVICEPLAN in Munich, from 2013 on as creative director. (Being awarded with the Design Grand Prix on stage of the ‘Palais des Festivals‘ in Cannes is a great memory, too). In 2015 he built up the design unit at FCB in Chicago working for clients such as BUD LIGHT LIME, BOEING and MASERATI. (Working on the 21st floor of ‘The John Hancock Center‘, living on the 37th floor at North Lake Shore Drive – another unforgettable experience). Since 2016, Matthäus has been working at THJNK operating across all locations and in an interdisciplinary manner.
Matthäus has amongst others, won the CANNES LIONS Grand Prix (2), RED DOT Grand Prix, EUROBEST Grand Prix and the LIA Grand Prix. He is a member to the Art Directors Club Germany (ADC) and D&AD London.
After 7pm he prefers biking, magazines, dining, modern arts, architecture, drinks, music, writing his book, helicopters and a lot of other things over advertising.
