SuperBruut

SuperBruut,
an one-man studio and freelance graphic / visual designer with
a preference for strong bold graphics.

Hello,

SuperBruut is a Rotterdam based One-man design studio founded by Thijs Janssen. A background in graphic design, a love for motion graphics and a clear sense of aesthetics give SuperBruut a good combination for creating visually rich concepts, identities and web & app designs.

Creating awesome designs within a short time for pitches or to set up first base. But of course I prefer to get involved with a project from the beginning till end. To make sure the aesthetics stay as sharp as they should be. Besides working on cool projects, sitting in the sun and eating icecreams. I like to play a mean game of NBA2K. Because this keeps you on top of your game on and off the field ;)

Want to talk about working together? Play a game of NBA2K or just to say hello?
Just send me an e-mail: hello@superbruut.nl
Or give me a call +31 (0)6 5793 2320

A special thanks to NotFound Digital Creativity for developing this website.
