TESSEL NEDERBRAGT

Hello! I’m a brand strategist, content engineer and creative copywriter with a passion for innovation, specialist offers and niche markets – and a secret love for plant medicine and database technology

My early history of fairy tale marketing

Content engineering and storytelling are part of my DNA. I learned to read and write when I was five years old and devoured the entire fairy tale department of our local library. It became one of my favorite games to figure out how to structure and frame my fairy tale induced thought world in way that captivated my audience of sceptical grown ups. These skills have shaped my life path – and they come in handy on today’s colorful and dynamic market.

The world of copywriting and brand development

I got my start in copywriting and brand development, which I used to pay my way through my years of travelling the world. I launched a series of product brands and helped other entrepreneurs with their branding too. I loved my work and I was a pretty good young business lady, I built a small international network of recurring customers with minimum online presence.

When I look back on this period, I believe the formula was very similar to what we bring together with King Eve: a cheeky kind of creativity in combination with a focussed and output oriented mindset. And of course, my love for the magic of stories.

My dive into systems theory & mythology

In 2013, I moved back from California to Amsterdam and completed a master’s degree in Natural Resource Management, for which I made a deep dive into systems theory and mythology. It was like I switched on a light bulb in my brain and the many things I learned over the years fell into place. These theories still inspire my work today.

Hello, King Eve!

After my graduation, I worked as a strategist and copywriter for different evolving businesses. In 2017, I founded my own startup, from where I joined a group of senior digital craftsmen in their endeavor to build the next big multimedia platform. In 2019, I joined the board of a creative collective in the Dutch festival scene and became partner in a local soda factory.

In the projects I was part of over the years, I saw similar patterns that would determine failure and success and I felt a desire to bring my experience together in a small company of my own. Hello, King Eve!

Early 2019, I ran into Suzanne when she was working on a digital treasure hunt in her studio in the west of Amsterdam. It was creative love at first sight and we have been happily working together ever since.

Meditation & hot chocolate

I love to help solving the puzzles that lead to the successful realization of clever ideas and beautiful visions.

I am here to help you untangle the knots in your plans, create structure and linearity, find the creative building blocks of your brand story and write you the lyrics.

Our world is built on the stories we tell and I believe that the disclosure of high quality content through products and services is a great way to enrich people’s mindsets and the way we experience our reality.
 
I wake up every day feeling inspired and after a morning ritual of meditation and hot chocolate I venture out on a mission to share yet another story with the world.

If you are curious or think I would be curious, feel free to give me a call or send me an email!

Suzanne Dirne

Hi there, I’m a visual artist and digital media designer with a passion for human behaviour, social psychology and applied philosophy – and a secret love for Excel sheets and origami cranes.

My early history of storytelling and digital creations

At school, teachers couldn’t reach me because I was completely absorbed by my books. I really enjoyed reading and I wrote my own stories too. My fascination with stories persisted throughout my life, just like my love for origami cranes.

In the early days of the of the internet, I started experimenting with animated presentations in PowerPoint and wrote my first HTML in MySpace’s disco pages. From there on, my carreer as a digital creative was set in stone.

My dive into human thinking & decision making

I’ve always had a fascination for human behavior and decision making. How does advertising work? Why do people fall for stories? How does religion work? Why do we make certain irrational decisions? How do group dynamics work? I’ve been exploring this through several projects.

During my studies in Social Psychology, I got involved in writing quircky posters for Loesje and blogs for Psyblog explaining day to day phenomena through a psychological lens. Moving to Amsterdam in 2015, I started an online blog about my daily observations living in a new city.

Brand development and digital communication

After my Master’s degree in Business Communication and Digital Media, I discovered the world of persuasive design and the marketing landscape of the startup scene. I worked as a designer in an advertising agency and joined a big company in the health & beauty industry as their webshop manager.

The call of freedom tempted me to start working as an independent visual artist and a freelancer in digital media. Through my journey from corporate environments to creative pirate communities and off the grid places I have been building on my knowledge of brand development and the optimal use of digital communication for projects of different sizes.

This little company of ours

So here we are, two ladies and King Eve. Everything comes together in this little company of ours. My passion for art and my love creation. My fascination with human thinking and my love for analyzing and bringing perspective. It energizes me to create things or give tools that help others to realize their ideas and dreams – and to make the world more smart and beautiful. This is where me and Tessel found each other.

Cultivating magic

I approach the making processes with a output oriented kind of creativity. I am here to transform your ideas and dreams into actionable websites and enchanting digital content.

We’re all on a journey to find our way in life and we have a choice in in the stories we create. My philosophy is to keep things moving and cultivate magic from day to day subtleties. And yes. I still love origami cranes.
