I’m currently working as Head of Design for DEPT® where over the last 9 years, I’ve had the pleasure to contribute to the craft, our clients, our design team in the Netherlands and several other design teams across the globe. Before DEPT® I gained experience at several smaller agencies in The Netherlands. 

My journey in design started nearly 20 years ago when I started my vocational training at Graphic Lyceum Amsterdam. Here I created many things that would today be considerred design abominations. 

Afterwards, I studied at the University of Applied Sciences in Amsterdam where got my Bachelors degree in Interactive Design. I later followed some classes at the University of Amsterdam, but was more drawn to the practical side.

In my spare time, I like to read, watch and do things around sociology, architecture, interior design, cooking, cars and consumer electronics.

Work

Over the last decade, I’ve consulted and created for over 50 different brands and pitched for many more. From local heroes to international coorporations, each of them with their own charm, culture and challenges.
