I am Mats Tijmes, a freelance designer based in Rotterdam. I create alternative realities by applying graphic design, illustration, concept-thinking and game-design principles. My work focusses on creating ways to play around with all kinds of limitations. The ones we've set for ourselves and those that are forced upon us by society. Most of us are chasing the life of a robot or escape reality altogether. Through my work I want to offer a more humane way to play the "game".
I recently graduated at the Willem de Kooning Academy in Rotterdam, the time I spent at the academy I focussed on Advertising and (social) Gamification.
