Karl Wolfgang Epple
Executive Creative Director

HAMBURG, GERMANY // Karl Wolfgang Epple is probably the most German name a not-so-German-looking guy could have. And yes, Karl is half Samoan, which you can easily tell by his confusing similarity to Dwayne The Rock Johnson.

Karl currently works as Executive Creative Director at thjnk. His work has been recognized with numerous industry awards including Cannes Lions, New York Festivals, LIA, Clio, ADC, Eurobest and The One Show.

In his early career Karl represented Germany at the Young Lions in Cannes and when he joined the German ADC, he became their youngest member ever. He now shows great interest in supporting the next generation of creativity, teaching at several universities and judging in international award shows.
