About me

 

–Dutch Art Director based in London, available for Freelance and Permanent. Stefan is an enthusiastic and creative individual from the Netherlands with a passion for Advertising. His Professor at the Willem the Kooning Academy said something remarkable about his work ethic: “Stefan was a student who spent as little time as possible at the academy, so that he had more time to do what he enjoyed most: being creative and winning honors in the process”. Stefan went to study graphic design in Amsterdam, and later advertising at the Willem de Kooning Academy in Rotterdam. In 2013 he took a semester abroad at the School of Visual Arts in New York, where he discovered different cultures. While graduating in 2013 he started as a art director at TBWA\Neboko and other agencies based in Amsterdam. When Stefan is not working, he likes to watch soccer or do extreme sports like surfing and inline skating. Sorry, he doesn't do Fierljeppen. Thanks for visiting Stefan’s portfolio and feel free to say hello at any time you like.
