Strategist for creative, brand, and business affairs. Founder of OCM and partner at carefully considered product design firm De Studio.

Martijn is driven by curiosity and has a passion for things thought-through and well-made. He likes to tinker around with big questions and find better solutions to existing challenges — In 2018, he graduated at the Design Leadership for Business certificate program at Parsons, The New School.

After kicking off his career at Isobar Communications and venturing out on his own, founding a tiny agency at a time social media was still a novelty, he landed at Dutch mobility company Bugaboo for a while, in roles that literally took him all over the world. 5 years in, he switched back to agency-side, and after several strategy director roles at some great agencies, he felt the time had come to build new things again.

For the past three years, he’s been helping companies design their strategies towards stronger positioning and future growth.

Martijn is available for agencies and brands — for consultancy and strategy design, research, hosting creative design- and futures thinking sessions, advisory roles, or interim assignments.
