Hi! Thank you for stopping by. My name is Hylbrand-Jan Hibma. I’m a visual designer and art director based in Franeker, The Netherlands. I have 20 years of experience in design and advertising. In recent years I specialised in brand and digital design. Check my portfolio for a selection of projects I worked on when employed by CMCG and NDC mediagroep, as wel as personal clients and projects. Want to know more? Let’s talk!

Some soft facts: I love all things design and things that are just visually pleasing. My ‘home studio’ is packed with books; half design, half photography. When I used to have more time, I would pick up a camera myself sometimes. I have a weak spot for (old) brand stuff; I’m curating a nice collection of logo stickers and vintage beer mats. But the most beautiful and precious are my two girls, off course… 🙂 To keep me going; a cappuccino will do or just put on some great dance music. Growing up in the burst of house music, it was love at first hearing. Need some recommendations? I’ll send you my Spotify playlists.
