Education & Work

Virginia Wilhelmer, born in 1988 in Lienz in Tyrol, Austria, started her career at Austria's most awarded dialogue marketing agency PKP BBDO, where the law graduate and art historian joined in 2017 after her postgraduate training as advertising and media designer and realized award-winning works for the Mercedes-Benz brand in particular, which were successful internationally and nationally. In 2019, the creative leadership of DDB Vienna brought Virginia onto their team, where the passionate paraglider, photographer and outdoor athlete went on to successfully work as an art director on numerous creative successes for McDonald's, Greenpeace and Wieselburger. In 2020 and 2021 Virginia participated in the jury of the CCA (the Austrian partner of the ADC). Virginia leads her team at DDB Vienna, where she is considered one of the agency's most awarded creatives.
