Others have seen what is and asked why. I have seen what could be and asked why not.

My name is Eline Spanjaart. I'm an all-round designer and photographer based in Tilburg, the Netherlands. I'm always ready for a new challenge. Do you have one for me?



I'm specialised in creating digital and visual solutions for educational as well as commercial purposes. I work with individuals and businesses of all sizes to bring ideas to life.


The idea behind a design, the message or intention, is just as important if not more important than the actual design. In order to connect with the viewer, a concept is needed. I translate the message and target of the client into a concept, on which I base my design. Of course, this happens during and after a meeting with the client. Everything happens in cooperation.


I take great care that everything I design has a purpose and an idea behind it. I am an all-round designer in a literal sense. I have experience in creating print designs (posters, business cards, student workbooks), websites, animated presentations.. you name it! These skills allow me to be fully responsible for a project, so there's only one person that the client has to address.


Photography has an emotional component to it. I create images that connect to the theme or story that the client wants to express. Not only do I create photography on request, I also have an extensive collection of photos that I have made on my travels. Nature, urban scenes, architecture, animals, and people.

The best camera is the one you carry with you.
I always carry my iPhone 5, which allows me to capture everything I encounter. Quite often I see the most beautiful skies, but nobody around me seem to notice because they are staring at their screen.
Why not use your device to capture these moments?
Take nothing but photos, leave nothing but footprints.
One of my favourite pastimes is capturing abandoned buildings. I love exploring these derelict structures, where its history is quite apparent. They also show the power of nature, taking back what once was hers.
Or perhaps it always has been..
  • The trip was to be an odyssey in the fullest sense of the word, an epic journey that would change everything.

  • All revolutions are the sheerest fantasy until they happen; then they become historical inevitabilities.

  • I travel not to go anywhere, but to go. I travel for travel's sake. The great affair is to move.

    Robert Louis Stevenson, Travels with a Donkey in the Cevennes



My designs are based on the message and identity of the client. I use research, strategy and problem solving to take your ideas and work with you to make them even better.

Varied work experience

I have worked as an art director and graphic designer in e-learning. Running my own freelance design business as well, has allowed me to gain valuable experiences, otherwise not gained in an office environment.

I prefer working directly with you on all your projects. I love to talk and discover your ideas.

I often use Prezi and illustrations/photography to make static textual documents more dynamic and manageable.

I love what I do. I'm passionate about it. I'm most likely the person you are looking for.

Constantly exploring new ways to push the boundaries, honest, outspoken and driven. I love learning, and developing myself through lots of industry reading and conference-going.

Other than designing, I have a passion for education. That's why I'm studying to be an English teacher and experimenting with 21st Century Skills, designing lessons that link learning a language to my students' perception.

I love Apple products. I use my Macbook Air, iMac, iPad and iPhone for work and play, because I love using beautifully designed things.
New insights and ideas don't just happen. It's through travel that we meet and understand the outside world. For me, travel is the ultimate escape, yet the greatest homecoming.



Trends and technologies are swiftly evolving. That is why I am constantly learning and keeping up with the latest technologies, to be able to create designs that suit this day and time. By allowing myself to be inspired by our history, I often implement retro styles and images into my designs.

"Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever."

Whenever I get into a new project, I try to push the boundaries by creating something new. This forces me to expand my knowledge of the software I work with. With every project, this knowledge grows bigger.

To the right is a small selection of my skills.




Talk to me about whatever you like. Ask me a question. Tell me about your project.
I'm all ears!
