Thijs is half Dutch, half Australian and born in Nijmegen, the Netherlands. Having spent his formative years as a freelance designer at various agencies and projects around the Netherlands, he has lived in Melbourne for 4 years to explore the southern hemisphere and focus on design and animation for various freelance projects.

Adding another half year in Kyoto, Japan for okonomiyaki, ramen and experiencing the Japanese design ways, he is now back home, living and working from the Netherlands.
