The creative mind that Martijn has is something that everyone would love to have. Martijn has the ability to share his creative ideas and make you feel part of it. The amount of energy and drive behind every idea is really inspiring. After working with Martijn, I learned that his ideas are only the start. Every step that comes after that is with that same inexhaustible drive and energy.

Martijn Runia is a focussed and experienced design professional and working with him has been a pleasure. For the redesign of our logo and website we selected Martijn due to his strong branding expertise. From our first meeting all the way to the completion of project he's been great in explaining the process and reporting on progress. We highly recommend collaborating with Martijn for your branding or design work.

Milan Vogelaar
Founder STARK Learning

We hebben Martijn's hulp ingeschakeld om zowel de uitstraling als de gebruiksvriendelijkheid (UX) van onze app (Classi) te verbeteren. Dit is een ontzettend snel en goed proces geweest, met een prachtig eindresultaat. De samenwerking met Martijn verliep prettig. Hij heeft het voor elkaar gekregen om weer structuur in de app te brengen. Tevens zijn we qua uitstraling klaar voor de toekomst.
