Nice to meet you

My name is Wout and I work as an independent creative. I love to spot opportunities, think up new ideas and develop them into brands, campaigns, ventures, services and products that are cultural relevant, digitally focused, honest and smart.

People I’ve worked with tell me I have an entrepreneurial and curious mindset, thinking and working at a fast pace. An experienced creative, full of energy and a pretty decent guy to have around.

Make Ideas Happen

I’ve designed an Instagram course. A mix of my favorite methods and tools that I use for my creative process and mindset. The course has 42 lessons, divided over six chapters. That sounds like a lot. Don’t worry, all videos are between 1 and 5 minutes short. A total of 80 minutes.
 
It is about spotting opportunities, generating ideas. But also finding your winning idea and bring it to the next level. Along the way I’ll address topics like mindset, reflection, post-its, success, failure and more.
