About Waldbach.

Beyond graphic design

Waldbach may have been the German origin of my last name, Wolterbeek, but we’re not sure. However, my first name is Janne. Good to see you here.

I am a creative thinker and maker, in many disciplines. I can’t focus on one thing only, exploration in different creative and technological directions fuels my intellectual curiosity. Mixed with a generous dose of empathy you will get good design for humans. It is about both heart and mind.

What I love to do the most is designing a logo, and crafting a visual language around it, across nearly all media.

Essentially, esthetics that impresses and can be remembered. Whether a compact or extensive website, various types of printed materials or various on-screen expressions; the goal is to elevate visual communication in a way that transforms awareness of my clients’ brands.

I welcome you to take a look at my portfolio below, but be aware that it’s always being expanded with project insights and new work that deserves to be seen, and if you like, to be shared.
