IDENTITY

My name is Anne Stijnen and I am a graphic designer who likes creating ‘beautiful’ things. In my work I’ll therefore always search for my definition of beauty.  My vision, stated below, can be seen as a representation of my perception of beauty, or taste, at this moment. I always keep this in mind when designing.

 

The tangibility of my work plays a big role, I love a smooth execution. My eye for detail comes in handy at those times. And although perfectionism can be a difficult trait to work with, I am able to make it work to my advantage with hard work and determination. When I have something in mind, I’ll work nights and forget about the existence of food.

 

My work communicates a strong passion towards minimalism and purity. My character adds controlled chaos and rough edges to the clean designs, keeping them interesting and unique with a pinch of playfulness and fluorescent colors.
