CARLIJN BIJLSMA

this looks boring..

WHO DO I THINK I AM

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!

Once every while you come across a creative mind of whom you instinctively know that he or she is a natural. Not because they are constantly overflooded with good ideas. But because they are curious and kind, and they will shed blood sweat and tears until they’ve come up with a whopper of an idea that will knock the ball right out of the park. Carlijn is one of those talents.  Even though she is just a rookie, you just know for a fact that she is gonna make it!

Carlijn has been a great asset to our creative department. Always willing to lend a helping hand with any creative task for new and existing clients. She is a young creative with an open mind, a sense of humour and a good temper, which makes her a very agreeable person to work with. Above all she is a fast thinker, coming up with clever insights and original ideas on every kind of brief. So, if you need a nice and talented creative to help out with your creative challenges, she’s your creative.
