I am Remy, a brand focused designer, people manager, dad, visual storyteller and a sucker for great typography.
I was born in the Netherlands in the ‘70s as the child of a ballet dancer and an art teacher. Like most kids, I dreamt of becoming just like them, hence, I grew up figuring which of the two careers would make me happier. Eventually, I chose the one that was physically less demanding, but I do wake up with a smile most mornings nonetheless. And you can still occasionally see me dancing on rollerskates at the beaches of Barcelona.
Being blessed with unquenchable curiosity, I have worked across a broad range of visual disciplines, on projects such as designing a weather-forecast platform, telling the stories of small business owners through intimate photography, or branding a vintage race track.
I firmly believe that great design is a team effort.
The most powerful projects I have worked on were always also the ones where the best ideas came from cross-functional, culturally diverse teams. As a people manager, I strive to create environments that allow people to shine, and I consider myself lucky to have worked with some of the brightest and most creative minds around, both as leader and sparring partner.
If I needed to pick one word to describe my approach to almost everything, it would be ‘simplicity’. In a world as complex as ours, where data meets creativity and emotion, I believe it not only needs to be applied to the ‘what’ but also to the ‘how’ and the ‘why’.
