​Example ​​character

Marijke has signed Siep (van de Bieb) for us. We were looking for a logo through which we could build up our communication for the target group 0-13 year olds.Siep has become a household name for all primary school students in ‘s-Hertogenbosch. And Siep is always positive and cheerful in his communication, just like Marijke! She is full of good ideas and is able to convert the communication concepts that I come up with into images like no other. And perhaps the most important thing is that working with her is always a party.

The communication department did have its doubts in the beginning because your style differs from other drawings and animations we already use. But in the end they are also very satisfied with the infographic and the character that we can now use.It was very artful how you and your team managed to make the translation. What I liked best about our collaboration is that you have been extremely flexible. You were always willing to think along with obstacles so that we still met our deadline. You move easily with it.
