Originally from Berlin, Carina has been working in the design industry since 2002. She is a graphic designer with a passion for branding.

Her experience lays in the creation of concepts, design implementation, art and photographic direction. Logo creation, design guidelines, advertising, marketing communications and corporate reporting also feature in her skill set. More recently she has completed digital design projects with rich user experiences.

Having worked for several years in a large, award-winning, multi-disciplinary communications agency and freelanced since 2011, she is both committed and adaptable.

(Maiden name: Carina Hinze)

“Carina is a long-term collaborator. I’ve worked with her since when she was a work placement, then junior, senior and most recently she has been a great design director for a comprehensive branding project.

Carina is a highly motivated self starter, she has great ideas but also depth of thought. With her level-headedness and team spirit, she’s made great contributions to every team she’s worked in and she is one of my first ports of call when I need a strong designer who can both think conceptually and also get things done.”

Gilmar Wendt | Founder and principal at Gilmar Wendt & Co | Former Creative Director at SAS

"During the past few months I've had the great pleasure of working with her, she's been a valuable team member and always a great support. Considerate, creative and collaborative have been her natural calling card alongside her uncanny take on British humour — she will be truly missed."

Carlo D'Alanno | Creative Director at Rufus Leonard

“This lady combines passion for ideas and design with care and diligence for the entire job. And she is a joy to be around, she has a cheeky sense of German humour, which means she will gel with anyone you sit her next to. A great freelancer who’ll put her all into everything!” 

Nina Pickup | Creative Director at Salterbaxter

"The first thing that struck me about Carina was the incredible passion she had for design. She was very outspoken about her ideas, and always said what she thought, even though she was talking to people with many years in the industry. This coupled with her fantastic attitude and happy demeanour, and of course her excellent design skills made her a very valuable member of the team. Carina is a very talented designer, with strong beliefs and a pleasure to work with. She has a rare combination of gifts, and would be a great addition to any team."
