My name is Ilse van der Kooij and I'm a 28 year old allround creative, living in Amsterdam. After I studied Media & Culture at the University of Amsterdam for two years I wanted to put the theoretical knowledge into practice using my creativity. I decided to apply for the bachelor Allround Styling at the Artemis Academy in Amsterdam. I graduated in 2016 with a media concept and fictional campaign for the Art Gallery 'The Public House of Art’. In 2014 I lived in New York for 6 months where I did my internship in marketing, PR and graphic design at Suitsupply. When I came back to the Netherlands, I stayed at the company and worked as a Sales Professional for three years. Now I work as a Graphic Designer and Marketeer at Snippe Projecten - real estate development - in Diemen, where we are currently busy working on Hyde Park, a new city district in Metropolitan Region Amsterdam. For me design is thinking made visual, and with this portfolio I would like you to see the world through my eyes.

The main purpose of this website is my portfolio. For inquiries, please contact me at
