Hervorm

Hey!

My name is Ties Groen, I’m an artist currently studying Illustrated & Animated Storytelling at the St. Joost School of Art and Design in Breda (The Netherlands) after having worked as a Graphic Designer for close to 2 years.

I would describe myself as a curious, experimental and motivated individual. I love working in teams and learning from others but I am also very capable of working alone. My previous working experiences have taught me to have an excellent work ethic and an open mind. I also benefit heavily from my diverse educational background.

I strive to learn new things and take all exciting opportunities I can find! Through my knowledge of the industry standard Adobe design software, I have become an Adobe Certified Visual Design Specialist which entails that I’m certified by Adobe in the use of Photoshop, Illustrator and InDesign!

Did any of this strike your fancy? Shoot me a message!
