I WOULD CALL MYSELF A FREESTYLE DESIGNER
They call me Gonzo and I would call myself a freestyle designer. Oh yeah …I hear you think …freestyle designer …sounds fancy, hip and hop. Well, my roots lie on the streets, the urban mayhem where countless cultures clash. I’m a 100% DIY person with many years of experience in various disciplines.
I started out as a graphic designer and ended up with a workshop full of cool machinery and even a 3D printer in the laundry room. I worked for many years as a graphic designer and operator in the digital printing business and gradually merged with the even more fascinating world of set building for television and musea. And as a real design addict I’m forever creating furniture, lights and objects.

EVEN IN MY DREAMS I’M MAKING THINGS
So again, what do I do? I draw stuff, by hand or by computer. I design all sorts of constructions …and make them too. I also design and redesign designs. I do brainstorm a lot but then it really gets wicked. In fact, I got a really bad disease and it’s called hypercreativity (terminal btw…). And I like good music too (once a proud member of “The Born to Jazz Movement”, a dj-collective flirting with jazz, breaks and electronica) and I go totally coconut when it comes to sci-fi and fantasy movies and all sorts of nerdy shit. So my style is no style koz I like them all. But if you are really up to it, I adapt to yours and then we cook some great fusion cuisine together!
Or maybe you should just ASK me, straight on!
