I tell impactful stories through design.
What niels does
Niels is a young creative who likes to explore beyond set boundaries in the most creative ways possible. He likes to tell stories through his work and let his work have impact on the world around him.
The way Niels works is mainly research-based. He likes to get as much information about a subject as possible. He’s not scared to place himself in an uncomfortable situation in order to understand a subject better.
Projects Niels has worked on revolve around connecting. He connects emotion with design, design with people, and people with emotion.
Projects Niels has worked on are convincing; they get the message across, they not only tell people a story, but lets people feel the story.
Out of the box thinking
Because Niels is a research-based designer, you might think that limits him in his creativity; however, quite the opposite is true. His way of connecting dots in clouds of information is remarkable and makes his Out of the box thinking stand out. He’s not scared to take a different approach.
Design in all forms
Niels is familiar with a lot of forms of design. However, he’s not afraid to try ways of designing he is unfamiliar with. It doesn’t matter whether it’s working with metal, fabrics, woodworking, photography, 3D drawing & rendering, or even designing with nature.
Photography is a significant aspect of Niels his life. Years of experience with looking through the lens has taught him to look at the world uniquely. He has an excellent feeling for composition, a fantastic eye for detail but isn’t afraid to take a step back and look at the bigger picture.

Why Niels is different
I am able to convey undescribable emotions through design.
I use everything I can to make a stance for minorities.
A quite recent rendering project is Pudica; a biomimetic design project about anthropocentric noise reduction.
Here you can find a raw estimation of Niels’ skills he has learned throughout his career. Take in mind that 0% equals no knowledge of it whatsoever, and 100% equals the fact that Niels truly knows all the ins and outs of that particular skill.
During Niels’ time at the University of the Arts in Utrecht, he has improved a lot of skills he already possessed. He has developed a lot in that short period, but also has a lot to learn. Niels is open to learning anything new and ready to improve wherever needed.
