That awkward section

Creating environments, events and digital platforms for brands, agencies and institutions at Rare Volume.

about_me

Born in The Netherlands. I’ve worked from Europe to the US with a focus on projects at the intersection of design and technology. I take pride in fostering them from beginning to end. Leading by design while keeping motion and tech in mind. My inspiration comes from opposing forces and pushing boundaries.

My work and myself got featured in several books, magazines and articles like IdN Magazine, PAGE Magazine, NY Times and Fast.Co. Picked up both the Awwwards and CSS Design Awards 'Site of the Year' awards, Adobe Cutting Edge Award and the Red Dot Award, among others. And I’m a judge at the Webby Awards and The FWA.

Working together with clients such as Airbnb, AMC, Disney, DreamWorks Animation, HBO, Lenovo, Lionsgate, Naughty Dog, Netflix, PepsiCo, Pixar, Red Bull, Reuters, Samsung, SK-II, Spotify, Tom Ford, Twitter and WarnerMedia.
