About me

FREELANCE CREATIVE/ART DIRECTOR Working as a creative/art director for the past 15 years have given me extensive experience building international brands in both a full time and freelance. I have gained both agency and client side experience for brand and advertising agencies, global brands and international fashion houses. Being a founder of the international green media agency Fresh Green Ads and Dutch Fashion Foundation has given me wider experience. Currently working as freelance art/creative director for agencies & brands (in a team or by myself). I started working as an art director for advertising agencies like PPGH JWT, FCB Amsterdam & CCCP. After a few years I pursued a freelance art director career. This enabled me to develop creative ideas like Raincampaign; whenever it rains the communication appears on the street. This resulted in the international green media company Fresh Green Ads. The past years I worked for sport & fashion retailers like Asics, Scotch & Soda, Wehkamp, ELLE prêt-à-porter, C&A Worldwide, WE Fashion and HEMA.
