My name is Daniël Samama. Art director and designer from Amsterdam. In the last ten years, I've worked for agencies like N=5, JWT, BBDO and DDB.

If you need a creative team to help you with your brand our business, check out timanddaan.com.

Ideas are nothing if you can't turn them into things. But sometimes it goes the other way around. 

Start with making things and see what ideas come up. Turn them over. Take them apart. Try stuff. Grind. Scrub. Polish. Analyse your own thoughts and let your hands explain. Now you’re thinking by making.
