Passionate about art, design and cultures, I enjoy travelling as it brings me inspiration. I believe that designers can make the world a better place, and passion is the key to do so.

N. Tanak


Having a background in Communication and Multimedia design, combined with Photography, I aim for visually pleasing and well-thought-out concepts, products and services.
From concept development to visual design, I get the job done. Versatility is my strong suit and as a designer, I put the emotions of my target audience first.

Design and photography are ways I express myself, however I am versatile enough to try out and learn other mediums as well.


I have worked both in the Netherlands and in Japan. Interning, learning from my peers and gaining experience in the field.

As an empathic designer, I not only try to relate to the customer and their need, but to my co-workers as well.
