General info

Amsterdam
I am a multidisciplinary Creative Lead based in Amsterdam focussed primarily on digital design and visual identity. I’ve been working with creative organisations and individuals for the last 20 years across The Netherlands and New York City, both independently and with design studios such as Argo Design, Mirabeau / Cognizant and iO Digital. Currently Design Lead at Zerotrillion Amsterdam.

Some of the clients I worked with are New York Life, Unicef, Spaces, The Van Gogh Museum, CitizenM Hotels, The Amsterdam Fashion Academy, The ING Bank, The World Wildlife Fund and the City of Amsterdam.

Adobe CC & Figma are my weapons of choice. I know how to balance artistic and commercial aspects on projects i am working on and am result and target driven. I have a strong sense of style. I am a clear communicator at all levels. I am an analyzer, motivator, inspirator and problem solver. I get the job done.
