Let's Reinvent
your future.

I help brands & organisations to strengthen their story and better their communication. Whether it's creating a head-turning 360° campaign, (re)designing a brand's face, or developing 'something' innovative that becomes talk of the town. I'm here to open new doors, fresh thinking, and create powerful communication that adds value to your business and a brighter future.

ABOUT ME

Hello from sunny Amsterdam! 🤙 I'm Rein van der Ven (1985), a multi-disciplinary Creative Director & Art Director with 15 years of experience developing creative concepts, campaigns, identities, films, activations and digital experiences. By combining creativity, imagination, design, digital and social responsibility I aim for communication that looks delicious, sparks new energy and builds a better future.

I feel fortunate to have worked at award-winning agencies for forward-thinking clients in many fields and sizes, like: IKEA, Fitbit, Polaroid, SIRE, Netflix, Fatboy, Dopper, the Dutch government and many more. I know what it takes to make an idea see the light of day, overseeing a creative process and build an adventurous creative culture. Whether that means working with a tight budget or with a big ambition.
