Martijn is a strategist for creative, brand, and business affairs and partner at carefully considered product design firm De Studio.
Driven by curiosity with a passion for things well thought-through and well-made, Martijn likes to work on big questions and find better solutions for evolving challenges — He graduated at the Design Leadership for Business certificate program of Parsons, The New School.
He firmly believes brands should look forward and learn from shifts in culture, technology and human values, to build a relevant presence for the future.
After kicking off his career at Isobar Communications and venturing out on his own, founding a small agency at a time when social media was still a novelty, he landed at Dutch mobility company Bugaboo in roles that literally took him all over the world.
After 5 years, 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. OCM was born, strong partnerships forged and many incredibly interesting projects followed.
