A writer has always existed within me. As a child I used to write very elaborate short stories. My mother always told me I had 'such an imagination!' She used to hang my stories on the fridge. They would remain on there so long the edges would curl. I figured out in my teen years that my imagination became a doorway to some great writing. A long time dream I had was becoming a writer....

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.

Hi, thankyou for taking time to look at my page.Well to start with heres a little bit about myself.I am 39 years old and i have been creating artworks since i was about ten influenced by comic books and cartoons.When i was about 13 the hip hop scene started to get really big so i started to incorporate some of the styles used in graffiti into my work,creating works mainly for myself and friends.After i left school i stopped drawing for a bit .In 89 i managed to get hold of some tickets to a party called mission impossible ,this was when all the illegal raves started hitting the press ,and to be honest it was a life changing thing for me,the scene and the music started to creatively inspire me again and i used to get back from raves and just draw.This is when i decided to try designing flyers,so after a night out at the eclipse coventry i designed my first flyer and sent it in,the rest is history as they say!Since those days i have worked for mixmag,had my own t shirt range,designed greeting cards and one off commisions.Since then i have been producing music as a hobby,holding down a job and most recently creating artworks again having been reinspired by the street art scene.I have been putting my work back out there again and have recieved a lot of interest and have been offered two exhibitions one at brick lane gallery,london.So folks keep your eyes peeled cause you aint seen the last of me yet.....one love......Jamcee
