…een project is zelden een probleem.

Marcel van Deijl

Hi, my name is Marcel van Deijl. I am a graphic designer, living in Utrecht (NL) and currently working at Grafisch Ontwerp Pi&Q in Zeist. I belief that powerful ideas, fine design and clear communication can create a lasting experience between a brand and its audience. My work encompasses a broad scala of design: brand identities, editorial work, book design, et cetera. For nearly three decades I have helped clients to adapt to the evolving media landscape by thinking critically and acting in a problem-solving manner. With proper typography—always driven by content—as the most important instrument. I experiment within conventions and look for solutions that are daring but yet simple. Constantly with a keen eye for detail. Portfolio at request.

Passion for type

In my early years I was fascinated by graffiti, especially letters. Even today letters are an important part of our communication. Lessons learned from hundreds of years of typography, are still relevant. How do you apply these to digital resources? That is a topical issue. My passion for type shows in everything I do.

More iteration = better solutions

My talent is to make complex information comprehensible and user-friendly. I use a short-cycle approach that stimulates progressive insight. It’s important to explore bad ideas so you know specifically what doesn’t work. Each following loop you bring your experience from the previous loop with you; more iterations = better solutions.
