Dana Dijkgraaf

Dana Dijkgraaf is a Graphic Designer and Art Director, based in Arnhem (NL). With her love for form, colours and well-thought-of-concepts, she comes up with design that sparkles and visualizes the story well.

She started in 2014 with her own studio DDD in Arnhem, and never stopped enjoying her work. She works for different industries: fashion, art, non-profit, art education, nature and corporate organizations.

Dana is responsible for the Future Based logos, banners and logo photography and therefore is considered as our very own, in-house graphic designer.
