Dutchie in Canada the Netherlands

Well that explains the name, right? Though to be fair, the Dutch even have a prince going by Maurits. Just so you know it’s legit.

The Start

My creative journey started with studying ‘Media & Design’ with a final specialization in graphic design. During the first years of my studies I took advantage of the opportunity to do several internships covering various types of media. Those experiences include working at a recording studio in Amsterdam, running the video production for a music school in Coventry (UK), designing websites for a team of web developers, and being a graphic designer at a creative agency.

The relationships I built and projects I became a part of over the years allowed me to go freelance full time when I finished my studies.

The Move

In 2013, my wife and I moved to beautiful British Columbia. The adventure started in Kelowna and we have stayed in the Okanagan for over eight years. I took on a role as a Graphic & Web Designer at a great marketing agency centrally located in Kelowna. In 2019, the team was nominated for a ‘Marketing Campaign of the Year’ award by the Kelowna Chamber of Commerce. I was fortunate to have played a role in the creation of the message and supporting visuals.

The Future

So then 2020 happened… it changed the world drastically and made us decide to move back to the motherland, to be closer to our Dutch friends and family.

It’s been quite the ride but if there’s one thing that this pandemic taught us then it’s that we can be creative and in touch anywhere on the planet!
