Work History

I am an in house Graphic Designer/Director of Advertising. I have a passion for design and I also enjoy managing projects and bringing people together to work as a team. I am an extremely quick thinker and thrive on breaking through difficult briefs within tight timelines to come up with unique, inspiring and fresh creative ideas that will blow my clients away. Internet and graphic design has always been a hobby of mine so even after my studies I have always tried to move along with latest trends and techniques, always trying to improve myself - something I think you need to have to survive in this business. 1995 - 1999 Christelijk Lyceum Delft Majored in: Dutch, English, Maths, Physics, Science and Arts Graduated in May 1999 1999 - 2003 Grafisch Lyceum Rotterdam Degree: Multimedia Design Graduated in September 2003 Experience: 2002 Webdesigner (Internship) Eyequest Schiedam, the Netherlands 7-1-02 tot 20-12-02 2003 - now Grafic Designer/Director of Advertising Cobra Amsterdam, the Netherlands 13-6-03 - now Special Skills: Computer Skills: Adobe Photoshop CS3 Adobe Illustrator CS3 Adobe InDesign CS3 Flash MX Dreamweaver HTML CSS CorelDraw *I am also currently teaching myself PHP and Javascript although I cannot write it myself yet, I can read and understand it. Language Skills: Dutch English Activities: As a hobby, in my spare time I study Psychology on a Master's level at the Open University in Holland. I have chosen to study Psychology, not only because it is a huge interest of mine, but also because it has given me several benefits in my career and private life such as knowing how to communicate the best way with others and to just simply understand them more. Considering I have been studying for a few years, and it will still take quite a few years I hope this will also show that I have determination when it comes to setting goals for myself.
