Bio

Hi, my name is Jim [zjim] van de Sande, you can find me underneath my cap. I’m studying Advertising in art school and bring creativity all the way from a small village near Eindhoven to Rotterdam. On a daily base.

People are lazy so I want to make my message as clear as possible. I want to let people understand it in one blink. No deep-buried messages. I like to put a nice dose of humor in my work, but I always want to show a critical view. I think humor is one of the best ways to get people’s attention.

Since the day I remember I like to ‘make stuff’. If I couldn’t afford something, I’d always find a way to make it myself. Nowadays I translate that skill into my work. Oh and next to that, I’m quite good in repairing bikes too.

I like to

Buy sneakers, listen to (live) music, lifting weights, travel

I’m experienced in

Concepting, art direction, copy, graphic design, branding, fixing bikes
