At the age of 14 I fell in love. Not with a girl, but with the Adobe Creative Suite, especially Photoshop. As a kid I was really amazed about what you could do with these programs and I created various forms of art and decided to study multimedia design at college. Although photoshopping was my first call to the wild, I later became interested in other programmes and modalities for communication. In 2006 I was awarded the 2nd place of the Expose your Talent contest and went to Rotterdom for a video-production course, which was quite interesting and inspired me to experiment with video productions. This resulted in a wide variety of productions. Since I really like sports, I made many sports videos for my local Waterski- and Wakeboard association. One of these videos is still on YouTube and you can check it here.
Some of my recent work
In the past few months, I published my first book and decided to design the coverwork for the book myself. As you can see below, I was inspired by Bitcoin’s use of computer hardware and decided to style my book using an iconic style. The central square with the ‘V” on it represents a CPU -a computer part- while the blue lines represent the PCB of a PC’s motherboard. This makes the design of the book recognizable for those who like to learn more about computing and really fits the theme of cryptocurrency.
I also recently updated the branding and webdesign of my news platform called Nieuwsframes.nl, which I think now communicates a great universal style. The idea behind the new webdesign is that Niewsframes delivers news from the universe and that the website should visualize the cosmic road of journalism. I think the design looks pretty and is fitting. For Nieuwsframes I also developed and deployed a smart App, which you can download from the Google Play Store.
More about my work
Now you have seen some of my recent work you probably wonder where this all comes from. Well, I was fortunate enough to have many experiences that enable me to be a multimedia designer. In the past 16 years, I’ve worked as an instructor at the Hanzehogeschool Groningen and taught students how to work with the Adobe Creative Suite. I used these skills for a variety of goals, like the creation of videos, branding materials like logos, Webdesign, websites, landing pages, social media memes, and even comics. I also developed the corporate identity of Lijst STERK, which you can check here. I can design any document and format you need, so make sure to contact me if you need a multimedia designer in your team!
