About Me


Florian Marquardt is currently working as an ACD at Goodby Silverstein & Partners. Originally hailing from Germany, he has worked at notable agencies across the globe. After graduating from Miami Ad School Europe, he moved to Jung von Matt in Hamburg, SapientNitro in London and BBDO New York before finally heading to San Francisco.

Along the way he has been awarded by all major award shows such as Cannes, ANDY Awards, One Show, ADC Global, D&AD, AICP + AICP Next Awards, New York Festivals, London International Awards, Webby Awards, Communication Arts and Clio Awards.

Florian was named #3 on Business Insider's 2017 list of "The 30 Most Creative People in Advertising Under 30" worldwide and was also chosen as one of San Francisco's "32 under 32".

His work for Snickers helped BBDO NY earn Adweek’s “U.S. Agency of the Year” in 2015 as well as a Top 10 spot on AdAge’s Agency A-List. A year later, his work for Doritos helped GS&P become one of Creativity Magazine’s Top 10 Agencies and one of the “Creative Innovators” in AdAge's A-List issue. Later on, his work for BMW helped GS&P secure a 2nd place on 2019’s A-List.
