rECOMMENDATIONS

In my position as Brand Director of Ti Sento and later as Director of Own Brands I have had the pleasure of supervising Nicole’s Visual Merchandising position, Account manager position and most recently her position as Marketing Creative Development Manager at IBB Amsterdam BV.
Nicole has successfully developed concepts for numerous (inter)national brands in our Company.
Examples of her activities are (not limited to); Trend analyses, concept development of catalogs from a small edition to multi million edition’s, full retail concept development, stand development for international and global trade shows , POS material development (displays, Shop in Shop’s, packaging), development and production of national and international photoshoots, copywriting, logo development and development of mini movies / commercials.
Nicole’s strength’s lie in the combination of her natural dedication, eye for detail, passion and affinity for fashion & luxury as well as in her (international) work experience over the years.
I will recommend Nicole, without any hesitation, for senior creative positions in companies requiring focus and (re) development of its’ brand(s).

ARJAN VAN ZUYLEN - DIRECTOR OF OWN BRANDS AT I.B.B. AMSTERDAM

Working with Nicole has always been a pleasure, she is very professional, with great understanding of the creative process, managing a team of creatives and getting the best out of them.
Nicole has the great ability to make more happen then the budget would allow, great negotiator and fun to work it.

EDSON WILLIAMS - DIRECTOR AT EW-AGENCY LIMITED

A passionate and very (very) hard worker. Nicole and the creative team at Muse regularly worked passionately together. While most projects were hi-pressure with tight deadlines, Nicole always kept cool, oversaw all activities and was great to work with. Over the years she has shared other work with me and I have always been impressed by the high end creative quality and commercial results that she has achieved time and time again.

MICHAEL LITTAUR - FOUNDER AT AMERICANS OVERSEAS

I know Nicole as a true dedicated professional fashion and style lover.
She digs in deep in the essence of the assignment and then creates a relentless detailed consistent image/concept at premier league level with an international allure.

CHAGAI GOLDSTOFF - SENIOR VICE PRESIDENT SALES AT I.B.B. AMSTERDAM

Working with Nicole was a true pleasure and I do have to say a mad rollercoaster at times. We worked together at IBB Amsterdam managing the marketing team of TI SENTO – Milano. Our roles were divided between the creative and commercial activities of the department. Nicole is a very creative visionair with high quality standards, this shows in her work ethics as well as in the product she delivers.
Her perfectionism results in very detailed and beautiful campaigns and marketing materials, often driving me mad for the detailing and close to deadline finishes… But every time I had to admit the work was done and always better than the previous projects.

The absolute fine taste for the better things in life has helped Nicole driving her way of doing business to a form of a high standard with a consistency which is inspirational and sets the tone often for the complete organisation. With new concepts, stories and campaigns Nicole knew how to attract new and existing customers, both on the retailer (b2b) side as the consumers (b2c).

I would highly recommend working with Nicole to anyone. Especially if you are just a fan of eating chocolate all day as she is.

BARRY KROES - COMMERCIAL MARKETING MANAGER AT I.B.B. AMSTERDAM

I have had the great pleasure to work with Nicole for over 11 years. During this time we have worked together on jewelry photography and brochure design.
Nicole is incredibly passionate about her work. Setting a clear vision of what she wants to achieve, yet keeping an open mind and room for creativity in the process. We have spent many late night hours in the studio creating new and original perspectives and this has lead to great results which I am very proud of. Not to mention great fun!

Aiming for the absolute best, always pushing to do better, Nicole has brought Ti Sento’s visual identity to the high end level it has today.

SVEN GEBOERS - PHOTOGRAPHER AND OWNER AT INK B.V.B.A.

Nicole is extremely hard working with an extraordinary eye for the finishing touches. A true professional with the utmost respect for everyone she works with. Her creative flare and passion is infectious.

LYNDSEY DUNNE - BRAND MANAGER AT IBB DUBLIN

I know Nicole as a lover of beauty. Whether it’s design, fashion or interior, we share the love and admiration for sophisticated aesthetic, attention to detail and use of natural materials. Nicole is incredibly dedicated to her work. Once she starts, there is no stopping her. She puts great thought and detail into everything she does. Her passion, dedication, conceptual thinking and attention to detail create high end consistent work. It is always a pleasure to work together!

MEIKE VEENHUIZEN - OWNER AT STUDIO ME-IKE

Nicole heeft voor mijn website de styling en fotoshoot gedaan. Ik wilde het anders, en goed en dat begreep ze meteen. Ze pakte het aan met een enorme bevlogenheid en professionaliteit. Daarbij heeft ze echt gevoel voor stijl, ze heeft smaak, ze is creatief, luistert goed, duikt erin, is niet meer te stoppen en levert vervolgens een nog mooier resultaat dan dat wat je verwachtte. Ik raad haar zeer aan!
