2020 One Show Integrated / Experiential & Immersive Jury

Dennis May

Chief Creative Officer

DDB Germany


Dennis started his career by accident in the account department. But just after 2 years he quickly moved to the creative side and became a copywriter at Grey Germany. After that he went to Jung von Matt for 3 years before he joined DDB in 2006. Over the course of the past 13 years he climbed his way up to become the Creative Managing Director of the Düsseldorf Office in 2012, and eventually to Chief Creative Officer of DDB Germany in 2017. He is responsible for all the creative products for all the German DDB offices (Berlin, Düsseldorf and Hamburg). Clients of these agencies include Deutsche Telekom, Volkswagen, Lufthansa, Henkel, Pink Ribbon, Stabilo, Miele and Deichmann—just to name a few.

Dennis is a member of the Art Director’s club of Germany, D&AD and was a member of the jury for various renowned national and international awards. Over the years, together with his awesome teams, he has won numerous international awards. And if you don’t find him in the jury or the office, he is most likely standing in the crowd of a live concert somewhere in Europe.
