Claran van ZijlDesigner & art director
I am Claran (32) born in Wijk bij Duurstede and attended the HAVO in Utrecht. After graduation I wanted to see something more of this gorgeous world and at 16 I travelled to the USA to become an exchange student in the Southern state of Tennessee. During this year I took part in lots of art classes and got inspired. So while living in the USA I applied for the Digital Media Design Master education at the Hogeschool voor de Kunsten Hilversum. I got in! Graduated with a Master of Arts in 2005.

Started working freelance and learned so much working for different clients. Now with over 11 years of experience I am an allround designer with a preference for concept & visual strategy.
