IT’S ABOUT ART, MUSIC & LITERATURE

My name is Sajjad Khatibi. I am an award–winning Art Director and Motion Designer living in Berlin and working as Senior Creative at HeimatTBWA\. I emigrated to Europe in 1999, grew up in the Frankfurt am Main area and got German citizenship after five years. After grammar school I moved to Berlin in 2008 and started my studies in Graphic Design at the Lette Verein Berlin. After three years of successful studies, I decided to continue my education in Communication Design at the University of Applied Sciences for Engineering and Economics (HTW Berlin), which I completed after four years with a Bachelor of Arts with a very good result.
As a Creative, I have worked on many platforms with and for various brands and partners such as HORNBACH, Jägermeister, OTTO, Trolli, Mercedes Benz, Opel (to name a few) as well as for artists and friends. I never want to feel like I have “arrived” or become complacent and I am always happy when I can share my knowledge with others.
