    Puffy coatsPuffy coats is an outdoor clothing brand, namely focused in coats and jackets. They want to motivate people to go outside more, also when it's cold because their coats provide enough warmth.

    Bachelor of Arts (BA) NHL Stenden
     - Leeuwarden, Netherlands
    During my time of studying Creative Business, I have worked on multiple medium projects. From designing a magazine, to making short films, and creating marketing campaigns. This study also allowed me to work with real clients. For my minor, I worked with a milk tea brand for which my team and I redesigned their website. For the same minor, I also create a personal blog for which I optimised the blog's SEO and made sure the design was responsive. For extra credit, I joined the course's student council where I was part of the design department. We took care of maintaining the brand's visual throughout the social media posts and event materials - such as flyers.
