About Kees de Vos
Kees de Vos, founder of BrandStory: ‘It is the story behind a brand that really makes it shine’
‘Beauty is nothing without substance, and substance is nothing without the allure of beauty to let it shine. A thing of substance is understood better if it is communicated clearly, but also with beauty and grace. Only then can authenticity be achieved.’
Kees de Vos started his career in the publishing business. At the Staatsuitgeverij (Dutch national publisher), he worked on beautiful art publications. This inspired him to attend the Academy of Art and Design where he developed his creative side, specialising in visual communication. The interplay between image and typography, the power of clear visual expression, the emotion that a message needs, and the direct relationship with the receiver of a medium; these are the elements with which BrandStory distinguishes itself.
Innovative entrepreneurship starts with a combination of progressive thinking and the courage to stand out from the crowd. Distinctive design and a strong identity serve as a springboard for growth and success. Using Design Management as a basis, we develop these components and in doing so bring value to design. That is the power of BrandStory.
We are proud of our clients, the beautiful brands and the inspiring organisations we are lucky enough to work for.
