Melanie Dietz
Personnel Manager on parental leave

Our dear Melanie is now in parental leave for the next year. Melanie is an experienced Art Director and has been taking care of DESIGNERDOCK Hamburg's creatives as of Spring 2014.
For over 10 years, Melanie was responsible for handling large budgets for leading Hamburg agencies, as well as dealing with clients from the fashion, food and trade industries. She landed at DESIGNERDOCK in 2014 where she is now putting her range of experience and network to good use by matching just the right creative types with ambitious Hamburg agencies, as well as other firms in the communications branch.

Nina Maerker
Personnel Manager

Nina's 10 years of client-side and agency experience in marketing branded goods is the optimal qualification to care for the account managers and copywriters positions at DESIGNERDOCK. As business economist with a degree in Spanish and German and as an enthusiastic matchmaker, she fits perfectly into Hamburg's DESIGNERDOCK and finds not the right people for the right positions, but also a parking space in front of our office every morning.

Johanna Koch
Personnel Manager on parental leave

With over 10 years of experience in design and art direction as both a freelancer and as a permanent employee, as well as being trained in systemic and goal oriented job-coaching, Johanna is the perfect consultant for creative candidates and positions. This friendly young woman from Kiel not only enriches our licorice collection, she also contributes a lot of infectious optimism to every position she takes care of.
Starting in October 2016 she will no longer take care of the creatives and instead tend to her child. We are looking forward to next year when she will spend more time at DESIGNERDOCK again. 

Carolin Barthelmes
Personnel Manager

She’s in love with the ocean an the harbour… The cheery girl from Hamburg spent over 10 years in the agency scene as an art director for fashion, lifestyle and commerce. During that time she learned a lot about people and communication. Henceforth Clara kept investing in her passion of interpersonal communication and studied systemic coaching. In July she signed on DESIGNERDOCK Hamburg, takes care of the creatives and does our morning yoga routines with us.

Clara Meissner
Office Manager


Clara answers the phone, coordinates our appointments, organizes the office and is the first contact person for clients and candidates. Without a doubt she is the most important woman at DESIGNERDOCK Hamburg. But Clara is capable of even more: this Berlin native has experience in Social Media (AIDA Cruises) and in HR management and takes cares of our job ads as well as our Facebook page ( There’s only one things Clara doesn’t do: fill the gap in our licorice budget that Johanna left - she just doesn’t like eating it.
