About me

Hi, my name is Jan-Paul Koudstaal and I live just outside the city of Rotterdam in The Netherlands.

I currently work as a freelance digital designer at bol.com, an ecommerce platform with over 13 million active customers.

Outside of work, I love spending time with my wife and daughter. I’ve played basketball since I was 11, and I still enjoy playing, going to the gym, or for a run outside.

I like taking pictures when we travel, and I often post them on Glass. I also keep track of the books I read on Goodreads and the movies I watch on Letterboxd. If you want to find out what inspires me (spoiler: it’s a lot) you can check out my newsletter Inspired By.

This website is typeset in Alegreya by Huerta Tipográfica, Obviously by Ohno Type, and was built in Framer.
