Hello,

My name's Alex and I'm a Dutch advertising creative. I enjoy long walks on the beach and coming up with impactful ideas for brands. Ideas that are fun, simple and smart (well...sometimes). After four years in the US, in which I became the proud father of two little girls, I recently moved back to the motherland to work at 180 Kingsday and enjoy my country's excellent childcare benefits.

Feel free to drop me a line at lexherwig@gmail.com
