Hi, I'm Alex

I'm a Dutch designer slash art director. Senior by title, junior by heart. 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 moved back to the motherland to work at 180 Amsterdam and enjoy my country's excellent childcare benefits.
