Our goal

Striving for our goal to be a many-sided agency we choose the name Studio Zakmes (translated: studio pocketknife), a metaphor used to describe us (our approach); multi-disciplinary, durable, ergonomic and convenient.

With our constant passion for broadening our horizons in skills and working in teams with different specialties we strive for our “pocket knife” work method. Having creative tools and solutions for any given situation.

Studio Zakmes about photo

Our story

After Sander finished the Fotovakschool in Amsterdam and Patrick Media & Communication in Den Bosch, they both decided to broaden their horizons and started a new study at Hogeschool van de Kunsten - Graphic Design in 2012.

Both having one foot in the artistic world and a gravitation towards the commercial world, in the second year they discovered a similar vision in design, work-ethic and project-goals. Working together ever since, they’ve build the opportunity to launch their own design company after graduating.

Ever after they have been developing their branding and visual skills, with exploring the fields of technological innovations, attending conferences and expanding their toolset. Resulting in an efficient full service design agency that generates visual branding, web design, photography and marketing strategies.

Things we can do for you and your team

Visual branding

We build user experiences by making more than a logo, but by constructing a memorable brand for your audience. A visual identity for us is a consistency in visuals, feeling and tone-of-voice in all assets. This with the expandables in  photography, packaging, web design and marketing experience to boost your ideas.

Website Design & Development

Online representation scalable to all devices originated with the eyes of designers and developers. With focus on the User-Experience suited for the audience you aspire to reach. Enhanced security, fast loads and backed up. Aswell as a powerful CMS for the client to easily adjust or add content to their online platform themselves.


Our office space includes a fully functional photo studio. Here we can capture your portraits or products, but also experiment with photography. We are also able to take our portable studio gear to any given location. Challenge us with your cool concept or let us propose our creative ideas to you!

A selection of the companies and brands we enjoyed working with over the past few years.

Working on different projects over the last five years has vastly expanded our network of contacts in diverse professions. In our philosophy, the way to create the best design is to build a team of people that all outshine/excel in their specialty.
