Since I was little I have been creating things, I was designing my own sweaters at 6 for my mum to sew up for me. A career in design was a natural step for me. ? I am Sanne. I am an allround creative innovator, creative stategist and have great ability to motivate and inspire people. Ex Amsterdammer, new Haarlemmer, happy mom of one beautiful daughter together with my man Geert, who is a creative producer . I am a designer with 8.5 years of footwear design experience at Nike and picked up trend and consumer research along the way to forecast the future of brands. Now starting up a freelance design and trend forecast agency. Quite varied, but all with one thing in common and that is the way I bring beautiful things together to tell a story: I use snippets of heritage, a broad spectrum of art / culture / design and trends and a little dash of provocativeness.
