Meet Eduardo Inderbitzin of Edi Inderbitzin

Today we’d like to introduce you to Eduardo Inderbitzin.

Eduardo, please share your story with us. How did you get to where you are today?
Hello, my name is Edi Inderbitzin and I am a worldwide creative.

Born in Mexico City and being the son of a Mexican mother and a Swiss father, I was exposed, from the day I was born to different cultures and languages. I am 35 now and lived in 12 different cities all over the world. During those travels, I learned different languages, to be open to new cultures, their people and everything that comes with it.

Like the food, music and everyday rituals, the uniqueness of embracing an environment.

The love to travel and explore was given to me by my parents. They met in the US and moved together to Mexico, Switzerland, Algier and then back to Mexico where I was born in 1982. My father has always encouraged me to try new things, eat everything and to never be afraid of the unknown. My mother, a bit more reluctant to eat whatever was put on a plate in front of her, has always supported and pushed me to follow my dreams and live life to the fullest. Traveling with the support of my family is what shaped me the most.

Each has shared with me a passion which creates a view without borders, together they make a pretty great team that helped, and still helps me, to go through with whatever crazy idea I might have. My core translates into an intuition propelled by heart and an eagerness to remain in awe with a world I’m still discovering and probably will never grasp the whole.

Right now I am working at RPA in Santa Monica as a Creative Director at Honda. Before that, I was living in Berlin as a freelance Creative Director where I was working on brands like CocaCola, Heineken, Ikea, Hyundai and working on my photography skills and my personal projects. I ended up there after working and interning all over the world. I worked in Hamburg, Stockholm, New York, Detroit, Boulder and after a 6 month ‘round the world trip I decided to stay in Berlin. Then the offer to come to LA came and I changed the grey skies of Berlin for the sunny beaches of Venice, creativity nourishes on perspective.

I was always eager to express myself in different ways, I constantly drew and filled my school books with little scribbles. After finishing school in Portugal I did and internship for Marketing at the Pharma company Roche… as it turns out, I am not much of a numbers person. Right after that, I went to do an internship at the internal Graphic Design and Corporate Design division of VOITH. That helped me to get my portfolio going which then helped me to apply to a Graphic Design school in Hamburg where I learned more into advertising.

Right after school, I got an internship at Grabarz & Partner in Hamburg where I was fortunate enough to work on Volkswagen. I got hired as a creative and was lucky to work alongside some of the best creatives that I know. After three and a half years and after winning several advertising awards, I decided to work more on my conceptual skills and went to Miami Ad School Europe in Hamburg (yes, the school is in Germany). That’s where my journey started.

Exploring has always attracted me, it’s what I think makes me a creative person. I am always curious.

Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
Being away from family and friends and making new friends is definitely the hardest part. Cultural differences are also something that I had to learn. Especially in business.

Edi Inderbitzin – what should we know? What do you guys do best? What sets you apart from the competition?
I’m a Creative Director and photographer specialized in visuals and advertising. I’m proud to be able to offer a lot of experience in the fields of advertising and photography. I speak seven languages and I am always up for a new challenge.

What moment in your career do you look back most fondly on?
I try to be proud of every moment in my career. I enjoy the ups and downs and the struggles and the fights since those made me better and stronger.
