this looks boring..


When I'm creating, I use my strategic and conceptual way of thinking for my vision that is focused on sustainability and humanity. I want that everything I create, has a value to society. Not only in the near future but also on a longer term. 


That's some sentence.. 

My name is Carlijn Bijlsma, I'm 24 years old (yes that's right, I'm a millennial), and fresh graduated from the art academy Willem de Kooning in Rotterdam (NL). I'm  currently working as a Junior Creative in the advertising agency Ogilvy in Amsterdam. In a few weeks I'm going to Sydney (AUS). I'm exited and ready  for  a new adventure. Do you want to see what kept my braincells busy? Let's find out!


Not that important but still cool
