Marten Meijboom

Creative Lead

Marten helps brands believe in themselves.

Marten Meijboom has a decade of experience introducing, building and expanding brands within a variety of categories. During his career he helped a startup ad agency grow from 5 to 25 employees and worked for brands big and small, amongst which Vodafone, Volkswagen, Carhartt and Johnny Walker.

Marten left the hustle and bustle of Amsterdam two years ago and traded it in for the mind blowing lunar landscapes of Iceland. From here he offers his services as a senior copywriter on a remote freelance basis. When he’s not working he’s fishing, hiking, building cabins with his friends and exploring the magnificent beauty of this incredible island.

‘Creating the Clear Music Brand Identity, I loved the moment where Jarl and Mattijs started writing on it themselves. Suddenly it started to come alive, and we were building something beautiful, together.’

Steven Verrips

Musicologist & Business Developer

Steven Verrips is a trained musicologist with a special interest in film- and trailer music. During his studies, he learned everything there is to know about music; from it’s theory and history to organisational skills, production and marketing. All of these skills have proven to be very useful in the matching of music and media.

Steven combines a passion for music with a love for writing and maintaining client relations, which is essential in the world of music. As a musician himself, he is experienced with performing and recording and especially loves going to concerts. His favourite way to discover new music is through visual media. Many songs on his regular playlists stem from film and television soundtracks.

The importance of music in visual media can’t be overstated. When used correctly, music can elevate moving image and create meanings and messages that otherwise would never be felt.’
