VERSATILE

I’m a versatile creative professional, with experience in print, digital, and environmental graphic design.

CREATIVE

Creativite: Recognizing ideas, alternatives, or possibilities that may be useful in solving problems, and most important communicating with others.

UP-TO-DATE

I like to keep myself up-to-date with the newest design trends. Good design should be about solving a problem and communicating a message, as well as appealing to the eye.

DIRK VAN ECK

I am Dirk van Eck. Welcome on my personal website.
I consider myself a flexible allround√ā¬†designer with a large skill set and with an open and positive attitude.

I strongly believe in growth, it will lead to better results in my opinion. I still can learn from others in the design community. And my idea is that not only the young designers can learn from the experienced ones, but also the seasoned designers can learn from the next generation too.

Nowadays technology is changing the world of design, you need to keep up, or get left behind.
That is the standard of today. But how does design create feeling and tone?

With technology? It certainly can help off course to get a good result.
But when clients ask for a project to look a certain way (modern, fun, historic, confident, professional, etc.) how does a good designer understand that and then achieve it?

The Visual Design aspect of designing that is what we are tackling now. Visual perception, meaning-making, amplification, the idea of counterpoint and the significance of genre, all with the goal of improving our methodology and execution as a visual designer. And most important of all to have the result the client is asking for.

I am always busy to stay up-to-date with the newest design trends and technologies. Good design should be about solving a problem and communicating a message, as well as appealing to the eye. Beside the aesthetic aspects of design i often like to dig into code to get to the desired results.

Print design and web design both disciplines i do understand. 3D design and video are also fields i am familiar with. I do have experience with (web and video) animation.

Please take a look and feel free to contact me.

Kind regards,

Dirk van Eck
