ABOUT ME

Experienced all round graphic designer & art director with strong illustrative skills and ability to put this in  a whole experience.
Conceptual thinker with a playfull signature.
Loves to design edgy but understand the beauty of a more corporate strategy.
Both independent and a team player.
Thrives in a inspiring and dedicated team, enjoying all the ups, ups and down’s of running a creative process.
Can evolve in to different roles, able to work side-by-side, confident to give directions, stimulates to alter perspectives, fluent to tune with clients.

Learned to get things done by taking different roles in all kinds of design projects. From books, affiches and identities to events, animations, public spaces and retail.

Not a loud voice but still outspoken. A bit quiet focused while making things done, outspoken and enthousiast when getting things done.

Believes in today, in music, cultural engagement, research, story telling and in brave clients.
