turn off your mind,
relax
and float downstream.

hi, i’m rik. it’s nice to meet you.
born in the 90’s, my mind in the 60’s 
i’m a bit of a digital hippie.

i’m a graphic artist
from the netherlands,
based in berlin.

i view advertising as a powerful tool
that should be used purposefully
advertising is one of the few industries
that can shift one’s perception;
so get your intentions right.

i love anything psychedelic.
does it make you blink thrice?
there’s a good chance i dig it.

most of my time is spent creating,
pondering big questions
and listening to records.

feelin’ groovy?
