Welcome to Bjorn, Front-end developer/Designer

My name is Bjorn Knutzen

I’m a creative based in Hoorn in the Netherlands.


I started my graphic adventure twelve years ago at Ten Klei, a graphical post processor company. Here I had the opportunity to start a course to develop my graphic skills.


Because I just loved what I was learning. My interest in design grew quickly and I specialize myself in web and print. In the past seven years I have not only boosted my design skills, but I have also become a web developer which makes me a much better web designer. And last but not least: I always keep myself up-to-date with the latest techniques. Like CSS3 and HTML5 which is leading and becoming a standard.


What makes me so unique? I have seen and experienced both the design and development side. I exactly know what is possible and can identify the pitfalls in web designing and developing.


At the moment I work for a few companies. At Bikkelhart (www.bikkelhart.com) I work here as a front-end developer. I develop websites and applications for costumers such as Allsecur, Opel, Ik investeer slim, and so on. At Noisj (www.noisj.nl) I design cover art for their digital and vinyl music releases.

Please have a look at my portfolio for further references. I also have my showreel online click here to see it.
