A third-generation typographer and ‘maker and doer’ with ‘a burning love for great creative’, Niels emigrated to New Zealand from The Netherlands in 2007.
He has produced award-winning work for New Zealand Post, State Insurance, the NZ Transport Agency, Mitsubishi and Meridian Energy, among others. He’s worked for Meridian at no fewer than three agencies now – including Creature.
Niels was drawn to Creature in 2013, attracted by the small team and a ‘more creative and more considered’ process, with time to craft and think things through and also the opportunity to apply his extensive photography and retouching skills.
When he’s not translating creative work through to production, he fronts the band ‘Weapons You’ve Never Heard Of’; progressive rock that he describes as ‘a bit Jeff Buckley meets Radiohead'. As befits an adopted son of Wellington, Niels is also very serious about coffee.
