When I was a kid I wanted to become either a brain surgeon or a pianist so Art Director became the natural choice. Growing up in the film industry it is to no surprise that I am a huge movie buff. I have a bizarre interest in music and if I would have a slogan it would probably be Marilde – “one hell of a dancer”.
Believe it or not but my bachelor’s in Tech, and even though I loved to code, I notice websites took longer to program for me than it took to design them. So, I had no other choice to get myself into the Ad world. Besides, ever since I watched Michael Jordan say “I fail so therefore I succeed” in those Nike 90s ads I have (secretly) always wanted to become one of those Ad(wo)men. I like ‘em ads wise, witty, sharp, colourful and bold but best of all when ads are simply ads that also make you laugh.
After jumping around as an intern around the metropolitans of the world I am now based in the heart of Europe, Düsseldorf. Where I’m known as ‘Miss Speedy Gonzales’ because I’m a fast producer with 20/20 vision for details. Every day, I mix sharp analytical thinking with sweet poetry. My name is Marilde Nykvist and I am an Art Director, who loves to write.
