Hi! I’m Jelle. I’m a designer, art director and poster artist. For the last couple of years I’ve been working on all kinds of projects, ranging from creating complex corporate identities, designing magazines, giving guest lectures, to international artist in residencies. And I want to continue exploring. I’m versatile and up for anything!

I’m based in Hamburg, but my bags are packed to travel anywhere in the world. So, if you want to work with me, let me know. We’ll do skype coffee.
