shools

\\Me:
= Shools = Addie de Zwart = Graphic designer

“Looking back helps me move forward”

Branding, photograph, illustrate and producing digital banners. With focus on concept and typography.

\\Knowledge & Experience:
His musical background, Academy of Arts and 28 years of work experience in technology,
retail and marketing communication offer a trinity of benefits.

  • Expression
  • Aesthetics
  • Function

These tools reflect his work as designer.

Exploratory, childishly, enthusiastic, driven into depth.
With convincing love for the beautiful profession. Endlessly.
Digital design goes hand in hand with classic analog media.
Analogue photo techniques drawing by hand and illustrating are therefore things
that remain imperishable to Shools. Hardcopy on print. It says what it is for real.
His work is varied and from everyday, although his personal tickly drawings are something
that stands closest to himself. Often from a reflection of things. And sometimes deeper into a theme.
His process usually involves drawing with ink on paper and digital finishing.
