21 Years of experience in the creative industry.

Big Pitcher - Mickel van Kouwen

Flexibility, engagement and entrepreneurship are the three keywords that characterise me as a working person. After 21 years in the creative industry I have done diverse projects like: building a successful company ‘Born05‘, cooperated with award winning creative agencies throughout Europe, started a Bluetooth Earphone brand and helped several startups grow their idea into a real business. The desire to create something new with big potential gives me positive energy and great satisfaction. 


Creative direction

Creative lead / Art direction in projects from idea to concept phase, through execution and all the way to a finalised project. The heart of co-creating ideas and bringing them to life.

Digital design

Identify the problem and offer the best possible digital solution in design, storytelling and user experience: websites, mobile apps, campaigns, games or installations etc.

Concept visualisation

Try to get your strategy or concept and convey it quickly into a design or prototype. Ideas are about the future, a vision, a direction that I’ll help you create.
