Born 1961 and living in the Netherlands

Working is my lifestyle since 1986

I am Peter van der Steege a multi-disciplinary creative from the Netherlands, currently working as CEO and Art director at Fitbrand (Groningen), creating and designing value and experiences for brands.

Proficient in graphic design, branding, photography and marketing.

For more then 25 years, I have helped clients to develop brand identities, as well as a strong marketing positioning. My vast experiences range from designing advertisements, products, brochures, logos and websites, to more complex projects, such as the complete brand design for some major Fitness & Health Corporations in The Netherlands. I understand the importance of knowing the long-term vision of a company and how to accurately and consistently reflect and strengthen that message in all visual and written communication.

I enjoy a good cup of coffee and watching Scandinavian tv series. I can’t work without the vibes of music or good company.
