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. I even found my job at Rufus Leonard online. Something entirely novel for that time.

After four great years I decided to return to the Netherlands where I joined LostBoys, a world-renowned digital agency. In 2007 it was time to start my own studio DesignRebels.

Effective design in a complex world

In today's fast-paced and increasingly complex world, standing out and effectively communicating your message is more challenging than ever. This is where thoughtful design can significantly benefit your business – clear, effective design that truly makes an impact.

Working together

I believe 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 happy to collaborate directly with clients or with agencies – it keeps me on the ball.

I’m also available as a freelance designer. I’ve worked on projects for NS.nl and 9292.nl and for design agencies like Edenspiekermann, JungleMinds, Digitas and Info.nl.
