I’m Anne,  information designer with more than 10 years of experience in infographics, icons, illustration, graphic design and explainer animations. Currently I am available for freelance work.


Ever since I can remember I’ve always had a strong love for graphic design, maps, timelines, typography and icons. As a child, I spent my free time designing websites and so-called magazines with my own illustrated infographics, icons and animated JavaScript cursors. I’ve never let go of that dedication.


I’ve gained years of experience working in newsrooms and design studios and have been working as an independent designer for some time now. In my work I like to use simple shapes and bright colors to make complex information as accessible as possible for all ages and audiences.

what they say about me


When RTL News switched to a visual language with icons, Anne joined the team. A talent in the field of pictograms and the gift of using them to clarify a story in a particularly short time and within tight deadlines. She has an excellent eye for emerging trends and an equally clear opinion about tired clichés. Recommended and must-have for every progressive organization.

Erik Mijwaard, former chief RTL News graphics


A wonderful designer with lots of passion and knowledge about (information) design. Her designs are always pretty but also always well thought out and informative. She never misses a deadline and can make quick decisions. She’s great at her work.

Hendrik Zuidhoek, former art director CBS


A true “visual storyteller”. She has a particularly good sense of typography and illustration, and  the most important thing: she’s a very pleasant person to work with. Always sharp and full of humor! She’s modest, but always comes up with  clever solutions.

Michaël van Heusden, former creative director Vechtlust Communicatie


Anne has a clear view on what’s good design and what is not. Combine that with her perfect sense of color and typography and you always get an aesthetically neat and attractive proposal. I know her as a reliable, original professional with an eye for the unusual.
