Effective design does more than just look good –

Who are we?

When we founded "dunkelblaufastschwarz", we wanted to create a company different to a 'normal' advertising agency; a company in which ideas are better because we look closer to detail, think passionately and implement these ideas precisely. Where there are no detours, no hierarchies, no titles. A company of ​​partnership, where customers do not simply give us work, but are sparring partners. A company who networks with other top creative designers when so required. A company that is faster, more radical, more effective.

Reinhard Obinger

Creative Director Art

I worked as an Art-Director at JWT in Frankfurt. I like to experiment and challenge myself in all fields of advertising and design. I love doing what I do. Always keep an open mind and never think that you know everything.

Peter Mitterhauser

Creative Director Interactive

Having fun in what I’m doing and the freedom to act out my creativity is the reason why I love to get in our studio every single day. To work on challenging and creative projects with different people is why I love my profession. With this enthusiasm I´m looking forward to the future and enjoy the present.
