Tessa van Balen
I just love design. Not only from nine to five.

I’m Tessa van Balen. I’m a 26 years old ambitious, driven and allround designer. I started working as a freelancer in 2010, at the age of 17. Since then I worked for some awesome brands. I decided to stop my freelance activities to become a fulltime visual and motion designer, but I’m always available for awesome stuff.

  • Allround

    I'm a self-taught pencil artist, learned graphic design and developed myself into a motion graphics designer.

  • Ambitious

    I always try to aim high. The sky isn't the limit (although this sound cheesy, it's true).

  • Critical

    "To avoid criticism say nothing, do nothing, be nothing." ― Elbert Hubbard.

  • Driven

    Always looking for new techniques, new approaches and new knowledge.
