Welcome to BERLIN

Berlin is Party, S-Bahn chaos, currywurst and airport.
Berlin is coming and going, too much of everything and too little of much.
Berlin is the capital - poor but sexy. Start-up, inventive and creative.
Berlin is Germany's number one founding capital.

Berlin Team

  • Karin Hoppmann
    Junior Recruitment Consultant Freelance & Assistants

    [email protected]

    As life sometimes goes – Karin first ended up at DESIGNERDOCK as an trainee through the recommendation of friends. She then became a team assistant. And as an “old fish-head” from the far north, she is immune to most storms, and showed ambition and an ability to find competent and suitable candidates, even for the most urgent and most difficult client requests. In 2012 she became our junior personnel consultat for assistants and takes care of our freelance inquiries. 

  • Indra Sarkar
    Senior Recruitment Consultant for Digital

    [email protected]

    Aachen, Calcutta, Bochum, Cologne, Munich, Berlin - these places mark the stations so far in Indra's life and career. After studying Business Management, she worked first in strategic consulting and marketing and later in key account management for digital media agencies. From her management-level experience in charge of personnel, she knows that staff are a firm's most important resource. She applies this experience now in effectively bringing together candidates and firms. In her free time, Indra enjoys reading and travelling - when she doesn't happen to be sitting in a cinema.
  • Esther Funk
    Senior Recruitment Consultant Text & Creation

    [email protected]

    There are many roads leading to the job of personnel manager at DESIGNERDOCK. Some are direct highways while others are long paths leading through valleys of experience, learning a lot about people along the way. Esther Funk chose the second way. After studying metallurgy and working in the steel industry nationally and internationally, she developed a passion for languages and learned copywriting on the way, specifically at Texterschmiede and at the renowed agency Springer and Jacoby in Hamburg. At S&J, she workend on award-winning accounts for Mercedes-Benz, Panasonic and Hamburg Airport. After moving to Berlin she started at Plantage agency, where her creative ideas helped make the agency a success. For the last few years, she's been active as a freelance copywriter and copywriter's spnsultant. Full of energy, she also "coaches" her own male team at home (three sons, one husband and a male cat to boot), goes to the theatre when she can, and dedicates herself to the continuous renovation of her apartment.
  • Kristin Louis
    Managing Director

    [email protected]

    Probably the most important woman at DESIGNERDOCK Berlin, Kristin Louis keeps DESIGNERDOCK afloat by managing the finances so that the rest of the team can fill positions. Kristin studied Business Administration majoring in Marketing. When her first job in an agency was interrupted by the birth of her son and she was unable to manage the hours of a typical account manager, she took a part-time position in the finance and controlling division of the agency. The decision has paid off, especially for DESIGNERDOCK. She is now responsible for the financial side of the business.
  • Torsten Haase
    Senior Recruitment Consultant for Interactive

    [email protected]

    Torsten Haase completed a diploma in Visual Communication at the Berlin University of Arts and during his studies also spent time learning and creating in London and Southampton. He then went on to work as an art director at Pixelpark, where he acquired important skills in online creation and development. Torsten subsequently founded a network for the design and conception of interactive scenarios and gained further conceptual and creative experience as a freelance online art director and creative consultant. His other interests include dance (a field in which he also has a diploma), performance and fashion. He's a firm believer in taking an interdisciplinary approach on both a personal and professional level and in 'thinking outside the box'.
  • Lisa Benischek
    Personalberaterin Marketing, Beratung, Strategie & PR

    [email protected]

    Open-minded, curious and helpful. With these qualities, Lisa Benischek brings three essential skills for her job as a personnel consultant in the areas of account and project management as well as marketing to our Berlin office. Before Viennese Lisa came to Berlin, she worked for the renowned Austrian advertising agency Demner, Merlicek & Bergmann. There she advised the coffee company Julius Meinl as well as the likes of Media Markt. In Berlin she looked after brands such as Adidas and Uniqlo and worked as a freelancer for various agencies. She also set up the Knit Knit wool shop with a friend in Mitte, turning her passion for knitting into a profession. We are not only looking forward to warm woolen socks in winter, but treasure above all that Lisa has been enriching the Berlin team since January 2020. Because, like us, she finds that a job is not just something done on the side, and she is now using her experience to bring creative people and agencies together.

  • Laura Halbleib
    Team Assistant

    [email protected]

    Even though she loves to organise chaos, Laura Halbleib makes sure that chaos doesn't occur in the first place. Since Autumn 2019, the true Berliner has been managing everything which happens behind the scenes in our everyday office life. She reliably ensures our database is always up-to-date and that paper and toner never run out. She is indispensable for our personnel consultants and a big help with the bookkeeping. With her penchant for fine design and beautiful things, she is right at home at Designerdock Berlin. Laura always finds a solution and enriches our team with helpful skills and perspectives that she has learned in seminars, podcasts or books. And because Laura likes to meet new people from different backgrounds, she is the perfect Designerdocker.

  • Lars Brunotte
    Auszubildender Kaufmann für Büromanagement

    [email protected]

    Whenever you call our Berlin office Lars will most likely answer the phone. Whenever there's something happening, Lars knows about it. Our managing directors love him because he is their right (and sometimes left as well) hand. He used to be our favorite trainee, always polite, always happy to help. Now he's our team assistant full time and we're happy he's there for us. As a Hamburg native with German Hip Hop running trough his veins he keeps the Berlin flagship in balance and we know we're in good hands.
