Hello,

My name is Thijs Biersteker, For the non Dutchies it's best pronounced as Djhice Biiiersteaker or Dice Beerstabber.
After years of working with great people from all over the world I will respond to anything that comes close.

I'm digital native Award winning creative with over 10 years experience in helping major brands and start- ups
better connect with their customers. I love to be on the boarders of communication, product creation and user
experience design. For me they are all the same eco-system of getting a story told or a product sold.

I love to bring together creativity, Interactivity, strategic thinking and a passion for how things (brands, experiences & people)
behave,to deliver interesting solutions for clients’ problems.

I won pitches, was lead in global digital campaigns, made films that got viral, created products for a better world and helped
companies find their voice. I won different advertising and Innovation awards around the world my work was featured in magazines,
blogs and books around the world and I was named 18th most influential creative in the Netherlands in 2012 one spot under
Rem Koolhaas one of my personal Hero's. In 2014 I was named #1 of the top best creatives of the Netherlands which made
my mom proud.

I started my first design company when I was 16 years old, designing experiences, websites, products and communications.
While working at Duval Guillaume Brussels, I won a Gold Lion while keeping up the Dutch reputation in the Young Lions competition.
I joined Wieden+Kennedy Amsterdam in 2008 as an Art Director, working on global accounts such as Coca-Cola, GE, Nike, Levi's,
Heineken.

Now I work as a freelance creative/ art director/ creative director and entrepreneur to help companies tell stories and
transform to this digital age using all the communication tricks and start up lessons gained during the years. Read Less
