For as long as he can remember, Hans has been drawing and painting, always using these outlets as a way to tell the stories he’d dreamed up. Strongly influenced by Manga and Anime, like Akira, Ghost in the Shell or Appleseed, he took his first steps towards design and filmmaking by working on classic cel animation projects at the age of 16. He draws inspiration from the not-so-parallel universes of Hyperrealism, Surrealism and Science Fiction. He loves stories about alternative realities. He also loves well-timed animation and exotic frogs. Yet, he hates tomatoes. Hans considers himself fortunate to be a designer and director of commercial films for international brands such as WWF, Puma, Lamborghini, Mercedes-Benz, Lexus, IWC Schaffhausen, Warner Bros, Unilever, or Mars that have received countless awards at D&AD, Cannes Lions, LIA, ADC, Effie, New York Festivals, Eurobest, and many more.
