Hi. I’m Jan-Paul.

Senior designer at Mangrove, a digital agency from the Netherlands.

About me

I love to travel and take photographs. I grew up on a steady diet of comic books and LEGO®. I’ve been playing basketball since I was little and still do to this day. I’ve had the privilege to work for National Park De Hoge Veluwe, Kwik-Fit and The Dutch Heart Foundation.

Prior to Mangrove, I worked as designer at VI Company, hAAi and 2D3D where I worked for clients such as The Dutch Government, The Make-A-Wish Foundation, Aids Fund and ING.

Projects I’ve worked on at Mangrove have been awarded with Most Popular Website of the Year 2015 (Dutch Heart Foundation), a Bronze Lovie Award (Hoge Veluwe National Park) and have been nominated for the Dutch Interactive Award (Kwik-Fit).

This site is hacked together in Jekyll using Sublime Text 3. Libre Baskerville is the serif typeface, created by Pablo Impallari and Rodrigo Fuenzalida. Raleway is the sans-serif typeface, created by Matt McInerney and Pablo Impallari.

Many thanks to Gideon Heilbron for his help with the front-end development of this site.
