Felix Fenz

Grabarz & Partner
, Germany

Felix studied Communication Design only to realize that copywriting is so much more fun. After three years in the Austrian out-back he worked at creative hotspots, Jung von Matt and Scholz & Friends before joining international network Ogilvy & Mather as Executive Creative Director. ?

With storytelling strongly embedded in his creative DNA, Felix loves to use technology as a language to create not stories, but experiences.

Reflections from Creative Coaching
The one thing I love most about our industry is the people. So when I got the opportunity to be part of the Creative LIAisons coaching program I didn't hesitate one second. Based on the talents we at Grabarz & Partner usually send to the Creative LIAisons, I already knew that the standard of my mentees would be very good. And still my high expectations were outdone.
Rux, Nico, Conor – you are amazing! I enjoyed talking to you so much and getting your view on creativity, advertising, our industry and the chances and challenges ahead. I'm more than happy if I could help you with my experience and my advice and I wish you all the best for your next steps. Let's stay in contact!
Meeting and having discussions with these extraordinary young creatives from different countries and backgrounds was such a great experience. The passion, the humor, the creativity, the knowledge and the wide range of experiences I encountered in each of them were so inspiring. Happy to have such great talent in our industry!
I'm looking forward to seeing their next projects out there and in the award shows around the world.
