Keeping it
sexy and simple

I am a maker. Born and raised in Rotterdam and living in Wamel (next to Dreumel), with my three beautiful girls. Occasionally hitting a drumkit or a tabletennis ball.

After 4 years Willem de Kooning academy of Arts in Rotterdam and half a year at the Hochschule der Künste in Berlin, my career kicked off in 2001. I worked as an illustrator named Panc, using pixelart to give shape to editorial illustrations, on- and offline campaigns, icons and animations. 8 years - and a lot of square blocks - later, it was time to broaden my horizon. I started working at several bureaus, developping skills in UX, digital design, brand identity, strategy and art-direction.

I am always striving to find the most simple way to communicate and making it look damn sexy as well. I have extended experience in strategy workshops, concepting, presenting, aligning the client with the best team possible, setting up an agile workflow and guarding the initial business goals at the same time. As a human being, I have some experience in making funny jokes, although some might think different.
