Hi, my name is Niels Straatsma. I am a musician, tattoo collector and creative writer for brands and agencies. Right now I'm a Creative Director at Superheroes Amsterdam. Before that, I have worked at Hustle R/GA Los Angeles and Achtung! Amsterdam. I have created campaigns, branded content,  product innovations, services and digital experiences. 

I like to disrupt brands and businesses. Not just because it's cool, but to make people care.

Feel free to reach out for a chat. Or find me on Instagram for pictures of the great outdoors, strange people and cool cars.
