I'm Niek. A freelance designer from Amsterdam.
I get excited about building beautiful, cool things that add something nice to this world. Preferably, I'd spend all my time designing digital products I believe in.
A cool thing I've been building with my buddy Patrick is blokks.co. Blokks helps festivals easily embed a timetable to their site or app. We just started, but it's very exciting.
I also enjoy working with 22tracks, a wonderful startup here in Amsterdam. It's a music discovery service, we did a site, an app, do check it out.
I've been working with Dutch public broadcaster NOS, helping improve their iOS and Android apps. I'm also very happy to have redesigned their website.
I love music and am proud to be working closely with hiphop label TopNotch. We re-did their site and launched Spraakwater, an online platform for raplyrics.
For fellow hiphop label Noah's Ark we've been doing a monthly online magazine called #ARKALARM. There's a new edition everytime the Dutch air raid siren goes off. #pavlov
Pretty much all of the above projects have been a joint effort with partner-in-websites and incredible developer Patrick Pietens. Some call the two of us Niek & Patje.
As for the more agency/advertisingey work, I've done a lot of cool mobile and desktop projects for G-Star, Volkswagen, Hallmark, Victoria's Secret, Wired, GAP, IKEA, Gucci and MySpace at various agencies.
Before the freelancing thing took off, I learned a whole bunch at places such as FreeAssociation in Brooklyn, ACHTUNG! in Amsterdam and the amazing Mediamonks. I studied design in Rotterdam.
I am quite followable. Try Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, Soundcloud, Tumblr, Dribbble or perhaps my Linkedin.
