I'm eighteen years old; fresh out of high school looking for a new edge. I've taken many creative writing courses and have been praised for my vivid imagination. I'm not fond of non-fiction or journalism. The facts are bland; so if you're looking for a reporter then look elsewhere. My passion is and will always be fantasy. Things like mythology, animals, romance and drama will forever pique my...

BJORN RPJ BLANKERT Roemerstraat 5 3861JX Nijkerk, The Netherlands +31 0 6 57338781 bjorn31b@yahoo.com http://nulnul31.nl/ VISUAL MERCHANDISE MANAGER | DIRECTOR BRAND CREATIVE MANAGER | DIRECTOR Innovative, intuitive, and detail-oriented senior visual merchandising and brand presentation leader with over 15 years of extensive global experience utilizing an impressive industry background and a recognized talent for creative problem-solving to continually push the visual merchandising envelope. Demonstrated ability to rapidly assimilate project briefs, identify key drivers, and deliver unique solutions that support and amplify the brand message. Adept at turning everyday requirements into dynamic experiences that perfectly merge concept design and product presentation. Track record leading teams to outperform corporate objectives. Core Competencies: Global Concepts • Visual Merchandising • Interior Design • Brand Development & Presentation Retail/Wholesale Marketing • New Business Acquisition • Team Leadership & Training Project Management • Vendor Negotiations • Client Relationships • Budget, Logistics & Planning Björn represent a rare combination of characteristics which have a proven facility to create value for brands and teams-within-brands. Quick Cognition (it doesn't take him long to "get" the vibe of a brand) Expedience (he is a master of determining the "shortest distance between two points", making him exceptionally productive) Fun (it's a stupid word, but it ensures that his own attitude stays incredibly positive to the point where it actually "positivizes" the attitudes of others involved in his projects and makes him a great networker, negotiator and agreement-builder) Off-Center (he has an unique personality and this can be felt in his projects which also have an invaluable element of "uniqueness" in them, while always also fully supporting/projecting the brand message required) Broad-Strokes (it's related to "Expedience" above, but he works in broad strokes and help brands make a big impression in a small amount of time. Lot's of bang-for-the-buck.) All of the above combine to frame his work as something more dramatic/theatrical than "Architecture", larger and more environmental than just "Visual Merchandising"... More like when ENVIRONMENTS have the life, personality and dynamism of EVENTS. Call it "ENVIO-VENTS" or "EXHIBITIONISM" And it is the combination of who he is as a person PLUS his unique (wide and deep) experience with expressive and respected global brands that have provided the platform for all of the above.
