About Koen van Rijen : Koen van Rijen is a graphic designer from the Netherlands. His work can be categorized as clever and minimalistic. Koen always searches for a twist. A subtle joke or maybe an unexpected result by using practical materials that look gorgeous. Koen believes that it's always about the big idea behind a production, no matter how small the project might be. Koen's professional heroes are Ludwig Mies van der Rohe and George Lois.
STATEMENT OF ART:
Design is a way to communicate an idea. Not necessarily in an appealing way visually speaking. But in an effective way most of all. Clever, to the point and without noise. Good design work is about giving shape to an idea, message or product and making it more valuable by doing so. That should always be the goal, I think.
