More about me?
I like cactus plants, the color of rust,
typography, square photos & tassels.
I am a passionate designer who goes wild for a great brand concept. This is when brand visuals, packaging, tone of voice and products all complement each other perfectly.
I believe that if your brand has a soul, a unique story to tell, it will always stand out. Even more so, I think if you're only here to sell products straight from factory to consumer, you're not reaching your full potential, there is definitely more to your brand than you think. I'm here to help you visualise and spread your story.
I value transparency in everything, be it budgeting or voicing of opinions, and have a very direct and honest approach, something I can blame on my Dutch upbringing. I like going into depth and looking further than the obvious horizon while building relationships long or short.
I work remotely as a 'digital nomad'. My first station in 2014 was Hubud, Bali, but I have seen many co-working spaces around the globe ever since. I get energy from new impulses and learn best by meeting people and experiencing. I try to indulge myself in as many different cultures possible in order to understand how the customer sees this world and where we stand. My aim is to constantly being fed with new input, which I can apply to your branding.
