Marit Jansen - graphic designer

Notebooks, journals, the corners of high school textbooks – they were always filled with small illustrations throughout elementary and high school. I’ve always known that I wanted to study something with art and creating. Graphic design was appealing to me, because I wanted to learn how to digitalise the art I made in my sketchbooks.

 

 

Being able to digitalise my art, and to create designs using all sorts of programs, opened an entire new world for me. I’m always learning new skills and improving them. Aside from creating interesting designs, having fun is still an important part of my work to me. On study breaks, I like to draw quick 1-5 minute illustrations, and the corners of notebooks are still filled with illustrations.

 

 

Aside from graphic design and art, I enjoy going to concerts and festivals, acting, reading and poetry.

 

 

In August 2022 I started my fourth and last year at Grafisch Lyceum Utrecht.

Skills - programs and languages

Almost all of the programs I work with are Adobe programs. The most used ones are Adobe Indesign, Adobe Illustrator, Adobe Photoshop, Adobe XD and ProCreate. Aside from those, I can also work with Adobe Animate, Adobe Premiere Pro, Adobe After Effects, Adobe Dimensions and WordPress.

 

I speak Dutch and English fluently, and I speak a little German and French as well. I’m an optimistic person and like to think in solutions instead of problems. I am quick to think “outside the box”, and I like to explore all kinds of possibilities so I can create a unique design.
