Hi, I'm Marcel. Art director, designer and photographer.

After graduating on Graphic and Multimedia design in Utrecht and Eindhoven, I started to work at the design department of the Dutch Railways.

After that I became a magazine designer at Bonsai Europe. After a few years I could not grow further anymore in this great but small company, and I started to work at a communication agency close to Utrecht: Art Venture. Over there I created all kinds of design material, campaigns and exhibitions for HP, Mediq and DSM. During my time working over there I got interested into photography. Mainly because of the photoshoots that we outsourced to professional photographers.

So I did a parallel study of photography in Amsterdam. My interest broadened towards commercial, architectural and documentary photography. It created my passion for cross platform creations (mixing design, motion, narrative and photography).

After finishing the studies cum laude I worked 4 years as a freelance designer and photographer. In that time I moved to Barcelona, where I found a steady job as designer, photographer and later art director at Cooltra. The job gave me the possibility to grow professionally, and to combine my knowledge in the widest possible way.

Feel free to read about my projects on this website, and give me a shout if you are interested.
