Stephan van den Brink is freelance Art Director, Designer and Animator based in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. He has a proper amount of street credibility and is usually lit behind his monitor. He loves to explore and exploit his creative ideas throughout divers projects. These ideas can be executed within different styles and techniques to transform into products like animations, visuals, music videos or short films.

Stephan is alway open for collaborations with other creatives, studios, companies, musicians, designers or artists. If you have any questions or inquiries, email the dude. Stephan works in a renovated school building in Amsterdam West where he shares a studio with five other creatives and a cat. Stephan hasn’t seen the cat for a while now so he assumes the cat is dead. Besides working at the studio he also loves working on remote and is willing to work on location for certain projects anywhere around the globe.

He spends his spare time playing soccer, running, listening to vinyl or playing around while making electronic music as Jar Jar Brinks.
