Marijke Meijer

“The universe is change, our life is what our thoughts make it.”

(A quote by Marcus Aurelius)

My name is Marijke Meijer, a Dutch graphic designer based in Arnhem. At age 20 I graduated as a graphic designer at Cibap in Zwolle. Later on I attended fashion styling at Academie Artemis in Amsterdam. Courses like trend forecasting, photo styling and image communication developed my concepting skills even more. During my study I started working as a freelance graphic designer, where I design visual brand identities, logo designs, websites etc. At the same time I also started working at a company specialized in websites, where I'm also employed as a graphic designer.

My love for illustrations has been there for as long as I can remember. I think it's great that you can tell a visual story which can be interpreted in any way that you want. And so Barn of Thoughts was born! 

Barn of Thoughts is a selection of digital visuals, where contemporary influences are mixed with colorful pop-art. I get inspired by photography, places I've seen and situations I've experienced (even if they're not always that good). But also with social statements.
