My name is Mark, I am curious! Working on concepts from that first spark to concrete propositions, is pure happiness, It is what drives me.
My career started as a graphic designer at various companies. Not long afterwards I developed campaigns as an Art Director within an advertising-agency on the Herengracht in Amsterdam.
In 2006 I moved to Total Design to further deepen my love for visualizing brand identity. I have worked on various national projects: Government logo's development, Bavaria Beer, De Floriade, Equens, MUMC, GITP, IHC .. but also international assignments such as Heungkuk in Korea and Wall Street in the UAE.
In 2008 I became an indepent design-professional. The experiences of the past in communication and design are still useful to me every day. I have grown into a visual storyteller. My activities are varied, from brand identity to packaging, to retail environment, to online campaigns, to museum exhibitions, from annual reports to general practices, from legal design to innovation design. Everything done with the same intentions, curiosity and pleasure!
Nowadays, I combine my freelance activities with the part-time role of Strategic Designer within Edelman Amsterdam. A global communications firm that partners with businesses and organizations to evolve, promote and protect their brands and reputations. With 6,000 colleagues in more than 60 offices, we deliver communications strategies that give clients the confidence to lead, act with certainty and earn the lasting trust of their stakeholders.
