About Me

Ideation through analysis is my field of work. I love analysing companies and concepts to create a clear view of the business case. Breathing life into digital concepts and brands. Working on delivering platforms and apps that seamlessly integrate in achieving real life goals. Bringing brands alive online.

Next to working in the digital domain, I like to work in analogue on sculpting sounds into music and creating vibrating paintings without any commercial boundaries.

What clients say

David Toborek | Head of Talent at METRONOM GmbH

I have worked with Dennis on various initiatives, covering consulting requests, design advice and startup guidance and during that time, he showed his very broad pallet of talents and skills which is a combination rarely found. His working principle is to understand before being able to create and as such create a value story that becomes a living manifest for everybody involved. This process of filtering, listening and need for focus allowed to extract the essence which served as the basis for all future elements including a thorough strategy review but moreover designs, which reflect your ideas, values and goals in a way, everybody can understand it.

Without doubt I can say that Dennis is a first class professional who is more driven by passion than anything else and that’s what makes him such a great person to work with

Bob van Luijt | Founder @ SeMI

Dennis is a true and impressive strategist. He has been able to form a strong team around him that helps in executing strong business cases and create interesting products. If I had to describe Dennis in one word, it would be "listener". He has the great ability to listen and ask the right question at the right time.

I would highly recommend him for any project that needs a sharp and intellectual designers eye.

Irene Bunt | Managing director at Settle Service B.V.

Dennis is bold. Not afraid of discussions with his clients, his best quality is to translate a company's identity into graphic digital solutions. Dennis surrounds himself by a bunch of good people who all have their specific qualities and that is how WeAreBold adds value to a company. I can highly recommend them.

Maikel Boksteen | 2Trust & Dari | Interim Management & Projecten - Executive Search for Finance & Legal

Dennis is een van de weinige creatieven die ik ken die ook zakelijk meedenkt over wat wel en niet zou werken bij de klant 'audieunce'. Dat is zijn kracht! Niet alleen zaken mooi in beeld brengen maar ook functioneel naar de doelgroep die wij willen aanspreken adviseren en uitvoeren. Zeker de moeite waard om zijn verhaal en manier van werken aan te horen en ook mee te werken.

Get In Touch.

Let's talk!
