About us.

It’s never about us

Why are we different?

Personal service, honesty, integrity and respect are the cornerstones of our business.

All the steps are taken with your business in mind.

As graphic designers, we need to think differently to stand out and create unique and effective designs.

The Design Brief is essential.

Designing without a brief is like walking in the dark, or a fishing expedition.

A design brief creates a structured road map for your project and helps facilitate better communication for everyone involved.

A design brief is a document that outlines the core details and expectations of a design project for a brand.

  • Design goals and objectives

  • Project scope and overview

  • What does your target audience want?

  • What is the budget for this project?

  • What is the time line?

Our goals are observation, research, and innovative thinking, with an exciting end product and a satisfied client.

We are innovative and provide elegant solutions. “You can’t be a leader in your field if you follow the beaten path.”

We aim to get to know who your clients are and understand your needs. This will give us a feeling for typefaces, and colours and we can build on that.

It’s important to understand the assignment before assessing the creative. Without the guide rails provided by a brief, you can’t judge the creative as a fit solution or not.

As a Work-A-Holic, I love to develop and explore my boundaries, test my opinions and challenge myself. I am always looking for ways to be creative, find better software, and give advice and service to my clients and friends.

After graduating with Honors for Graphic design and Photography in The Netherlands, I combined these qualities working as an Industrial Designer for two decades.

I mastered the Adobe Suite, expanded my calligraphy skills with old school training in Signage and its visual impact.

Beside Word Press, I recently picked up two new web design platforms. All function on a different level and will work for you if you like to alter the website yourself.

Photography is more than a hobby. It often supports my vision and can carry the message without words.

Gerrie is so much more than an office manager!

Years of experience as an office manager in the Netherlands have equipped her with stamina and organizational skills, and running the office seems to be effortless.

Gerrie is trained as an LPN and has developed an empathic quality that is funded in her “being”: honest, reflective and accurate. This makes her a very reliable team member, providing feedback with a clear view and questioning what is aesthetically strong and balanced.

Lately, she has developed a love for drawing and painting
