designer

I enjoy helping people achieve their goals. I have over 25 years experience, and have worked in both the United Kingdom and the Netherlands. I have worked on all sorts of projects, notably within the public sector. I enjoy cultivating longstanding working relationships as these lead to more effective graphic design.

Throughout the 'naughties'
I worked as a senior designer for Total Identity in Amsterdam where I designed several large corporate identities, notably for ROC van Amsterdam and Gemeente Zwolle, the latter being nominated for the Dutch Housestyle Prize.
Paul is a pleasure
to work with.
He is energetic, responsible
and communicative,
which is enormously
stimulating.
Jeanett Visser, Senior Advisor
Total Identity
I design websites, housestyles, logos, posters, flyers, business cards, emailings, newspapers, interactive pdfs and forms, promotional items, books, annual reports, iPad brochure apps, more websites, events (from banners to balloons), exhibitions and once the interior graphics of a public library. It doesn’t matter really, what I enjoy most is coming up with original ideas that give form to a creative brief.
Paul's designs translate
my desire to challenge
the usual image of
academic publishing.
His intuitive style makes
it easy to discuss ideas
and really work together.
Anna Yeadell, Managing Editor
IIAS
Thanks for helping us
on so many levels.
I love working with you!
Loura Zijdel, Director
’t Klokhuis
I use Adobe Creative Cloud design software (InDesign, Illustrator, Photoshop). I am comfortable with code (HTML, CSS) and open source CMS's (Joomla, WP, Drupal) and the new hosted CMS webdesign application Webflow (this I love!). There's a lot out there!
Paul, working with you
was great. You use your
experience to ask again,
instead of doing again.
You design
communicatively,
the way it should be done.
