Last week, we added a new creative brain to the aFrogleap pond with the coming of Daantje. She worked as a Creative Strategist at Yourzine in Den Bosch for two and a half years. Now, she enters our office with a big fresh smile every morning as she just jumped off her bike. She couldn't be more happy to bike through Amsterdam in order to get to work, instead of traveling long distances by train. Daantje van Gent will be working as a Creative Strategist at aFrogleap. She hopes to bring energy and experience to the strategy team. Also, she will use her business development skills to get new and exciting clients aboard. Because helping clients is what she loves to do: "I think it's super fascinating to dive into a client's business and get to understand their customers. This way, work is never the same and it's a perfect opportunity to get to know multiple branches and learn more about the culture behind a brand," she says.
She is specifically interested in client who are willing to invest in innovation. Clients who are ready to change their marketing from traditional marketing to more digital, one-to-one marketing. By joining aFrogleap, she expects to work with creative and fun people which will bring her a lot of energy. She will also increase her mobile knowledge, since she considers our team to be the best mobile team in the Netherlands (or maybe even in Europe?!).
In her spare time, she likes to discover the world or just Amsterdam with her husband Dirk and daughter Bo. She loves to cook (sushi, curries, stamppot, Italian, pies) so hopefully her new colleagues can benefit from that hobby too ;)
Photography is one of her interests as well. And she tries to work out every now and then (bootcamp, cycling, swimming and pilates). But she also takes time to relax and watches series on Netflix. The apps she uses the most are: WhatsApp, Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat en Pinterest. Social media really take a lot of her attention. But to plan for work, home and everything in between, she creates to-do lists in the Wunderlist app, which helps her to get things done.
Interested in what we could do for your digital strategy? Please feel free to contact us and come by for a cup of coffee with a nice view on the IJ and Houthavens here in Amsterdam.
