Thank YOU for visiting my portfolio!
My name is Claran (its pronounced like I’m French but I’m not..) I was born in Wijk bij Duurstede and attended the HAVO highschool 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 bachelor with honors and Master of Arts in 2005. I started working freelance and learned so much working for different clients in the leisure branche. Since I specialized myself to become an allround designer with a preference for concept & visual strategy.
