He also worked as Art Director and Creative Director in traditional advertising and as Editor at a film production company.Advertising Age & Creativity recognized Christian as one of the fifty most influential and inspiring creative personalities of 2010. In the same year, he made Campaign magazine’s Global Power List and MediaPost named him a Creative All-Star. He still wonders why.
