marketing and communication office with a bite!
zootz moves fluently between strategy, marketing and communication. Our team is versatile and fearless when it comes to complicated issues. We implement our creative concepts with a practical and clear viewpoint, and a keen eye for detail. When looking for specific knowledge we cooperate with other specialists in our diverse network.
The zootz core team is home to a pragmatic art-historian, an inventive businessman, a quirky entrepreneur, a smart urban designer and a creative industrial designer.
As team rookie Shanine is projectmanager and social media advisor at zootz. During her study Communication at Fontys, she specialized in the event- and dance-industry and marketing. With years of experience as a ski instructor at all levels, she knows like no other how she has to answer to wishes and expectations of the customer.
In 2002 Hank (drs.) assigned all advice activities from DPI Animation House to zootz. Entrepreneurship, visual language and imaging are the focal points in his advice. Hank studied Business Economics at the VU University Amsterdam.
Borrowed from Zappa: "Progress is deviation from the norm. In order for one to deviate successfully, one has to have at least a passing aquaintance with whatever norm one expects to deviate from".
Reginald (MBA) is managing partner and consultant at zootz since 2003. Inventive advice and precise execution are central in his work. After his Business Administration education (TH Rijswijk and University of Groningen) he worked as a marketing and sponsor employee at the Nederlands Dans Theater, subsequently he worked as PR consultant at Van Hulzen PR Consultants. “I approach every assignment as if it is a contest; which I already managed to win as a toddler.”
Julie (MA) came to strengthen the zootz-team in 2007 as consultant. Concept and strategy are leading in her work. After her Art History and Archeology Degree -specialized in Architecture- at the Utrecht University she worked at advertising agency BMB (Amsterdam) and afterwards over six years at the Central Museum of Utrecht and the Museon in The Hague.
“It’ll be fine!”
Since 2006 Bram (MSc.) is consultant, project manager and designer at zootz. His strength lays in clear phrasing and visualizing complex concepts. Bram graduated in Urban Design at the Delft University of Technology. After working on diverse communication projects he worked at Kraaijvanger Urbis Architects for eight years.
"Always looking for the essence"
With the arrival of Roderick (ir.) in 2015, zootz has affirmed its versatility. Graduated from Hogeschool van Hall Larenstein & Birmingham City University, Roderick congenitally is a landscape designer. Here at zootz he fulfils both roles as a designer and project manager. zootz comes up with the most creative solutions, and Roderick pulls of everything with ease and flair, others do not realize how much work it takes to actually make it happen!
Milou (MA) is an advisor, project manager and editor at zootz. After graduating Communications at the University of Tilburg, she decided to specialize even more and to take up a Master's degree in Editing at the University of Amsterdam. Milou worked as a communication specialist in the IT sector for over five years. She started at our ‘baby brother’ DPI Animation House In 2016, and later switched to zootz. Now she’s in charge of all of our copy.
Bart is our graphic gastronome. After graduating at the Graphics Lyceum of Utrecht in 2006, Bart started off in newspapers but quickly switched to Witteveen+Bos, where he learned a great deal. A wide interest persuaded him to work as a freelancer, allowing him space for exotic travels as well. In the zootz-team he’s excessively particular about details. Paper, screen, business card or abri poster. Everything is measured to the last millimetre or pixel; no client will lay eyes on it before perfection is achieved. Deadline? That’ll put Bart in eight gear!
