Bas er specialist i Digitalt design art-direction motion content production
I am a Creative do'er from Amsterdam, The Netherlands and now living in Copenhagen, Denmark. I speak and read Danish but in daily life still catch myself speaking English most of the time. I started out as a web designer/ developer. after that I got interested in motion graphics and video editing / production, back to design and then on to Art Direction. From there, my interest for Concept Development and Strategy bloomed. I worked with that for the last 5 years. Now 20 years later, I will be able to fit into almost any positions you require.
My approach is naturally user-centred and I love big ideas with clarity in value for both users and clients. I bring creative insight, ideas, visualisation and design expertise to all stages and types of projects.
I still love the hands on approach and the execution of UX/UI and even creating banners and social posts.

A simple solution where #happybeertime gets activated when the bar owner starts the happy hour. On a screen the visitors can see the happy hour time counting down. When a visitor takes an Instagram in the bar and tags it with the #barname and #happybeertime, the picture getsautomatically uploaded to the screen and adds 5 minutes to the happy hour. A win-win situation, where the bar gets a lot of free social media attention and the visitor gets cheap beers.
