Hi I am gijs van Roij and I am a graphic designer.

I studied Graphic Design at SintLucas in Boxtel. I work as a freelance Designer and I am Creative Director at a small company called Art and Pepper. Bold design is what I’m all about, clients who aren’t afraid to go beyond the accepted norms are a match with me. With every assignment I try to do something completely new.

I am a design adventurer, always looking to take my clients somewhere new.
