I'm Rein van der Ven; Art Director & Designer from Amsterdam. I make and shape creative multidisciplinary solutions for brands, print and screen. My work is illustrative at heart, minimal in form and always based on conceptually playful stories.
Mixed with a collaborative approach, contemporary knowledge of branding and new (technical) possibilities on the web, I can design & direct many different cross-medial scenarios. Whether it's crafting a new brand identity based on strategic research, designing an interactive website or online solution, or creating a print campaign with an exclusive illustrative look & feel.
Clients & Projects
I have more than five years of professional experience; independently as a designer (freelance or for agencies) and in teams taking the visual and conceptual lead. I enjoy playing a key role in a multidisciplinary small team, where you can be art directing the one day, designing a poster the next day, or strategize on a branding project the next. I worked with a broad range of clients from various sectors:
