Meet the rebel

Smiley face

A little history

This is me, Paul van Berkel, the rebel. I graduated in graphic design back in the 90s, specialising in branding and corporate identity. Soon I discovered the world of online design and in 1997 I moved to my favourite city London, just when the whole internet boom took off. After four great years I decided to return to Holland. I found a job at a world-renowned digital agency where I worked for five years. In 2007 I decided to start my own studio DesignRebels.

design that works

We live in a fast-paced world where information is getting more and more complex. A world where it’s increasingly difficult to be seen and get your message across. I believe this is where design can help – clear, effective design that really works.

working together

I’ve found the best way to get a great result is to work as a team, both with my clients and other specialists like web developers, copywriters and illustrators. Over the years, I’ve had the pleasure of working with some very talented minds, creating a great network of specialists in the process.

I’m also available as a freelancer designer and I’ve worked for design agencies like Edenspiekermann, JungleMinds, DigitasLBi and Info.nl. I’m happy to collaborate directly with clients or with agencies – it keeps me on the ball.
