Studio Kluif staat voor; Hema, Fatboy, Intratuin, Bruna, Xenos, Zeeman, SiSi, Jheronimus Bosch 500, Efteling en tal van andere grote en minder grote merken.

Als designer bij Studio Kluif ben je een alleskunner, van het ontwerpen van logo’s tot maken van een totaalconcept, van het ontwerpen van een website tot het uitwerken van verpakkingen. Tevens weet je hoe je je bestanden perfect aanlevert aan een drukker. Geen dag is hetzelfde.

• Bent een echte ontwerper en hebt zin om voor grote en kleine organisaties (nationaal en internationaal) te werken.
• Bent in staat om een totaalpakket te leveren; van concept en design tot en met het perfect in dtp uitwerken.
• Hebt geen 9 tot 5 mentaliteit.
• Bent een teamplayer, maar ook in staat om zelfstandig projecten te draaien.

These posters were conceived within a 90 minute timeframe and supplied within 24 hours of the game. Both competing sides were presented on 326490.com. Over 64 matches the collected images provide a unique creative expression of the World Cup muse. The idea has been embraced by designers as eclectic as Lance Wyman (USA), to Apple’s Joao Peres (Brazil) to Dragon 76 (Japan). Now all artworks are published in a limited edition book raising funds for charity!
