Can you tell us something about yourself?
In 1988 I (@JeroenvanErp) graduated from the Faculty of Industrial Design at the Technical University of Delft. In 1992, I was one of the founders of Fabrique in Delft, which positioned itself as a multidisciplinary design bureau. In 1994 I established the interactive media department, focusing primarily on developing websites for the World Wide Web – brand new at that time.
Fabrique has grown through the years into a multifaceted design bureau with offices in Delft and Amsterdam. It currently employs more than 100 staff of artists, engineers and storytellers working for a wide range of customers: from supermarket chain Albert Heijn to the city of Amsterdam, from Schiphol Airport to the Stedelijk Museum.
I’m currently CCO (Chief Creative Officer) and a partner, and in my role responsible for the creative policy of the company. Besides that I’m a guest lecturer for various courses and a board member at NAGO (the Netherlands Graphic Design Archive) and the Design & Emotion Society.
