Hello 👋, this is Robbert Mastebroek speaking. I'm a 25 year old designer from The Netherlands, making stuff for the biggest ‘nd baddest brands in the world. I started studying graphic design when I was 15 – and also opened shop as a freelance designer that year. Two degrees and 8 years later I joined MediaMonks, the world’s most successful creative digital production agency.

Get in touch

I'm available for freelance work: I like helping organisations and brands with design challenges and digital strategies. If you're in for a good talk, here's how to get to me:
MediaMonks, 2018

With the MediaMonks team, I was fortunate enough to help Viacom develop a punchy, new corporate website right when they were in the middle of launching a rebrand. Corporate websites often play it safe, but we wanted to make Viacom’s site just as much fun to explore as Viacom’s networks are to watch, which often push envelopes with a playfully rebellious attitude. A big part of this process was to highlight Viacom’s massive library of great content. To achieve this, we implemented several fun interactions and tactile elements into the design. We call this “cherry content,” named after the “cherry on top” of a cake or sundae. This unobtrusive content serves to prove and support the value proposition that brands put forward, allowing users to choose to scroll by or dive deeper by interacting with it directly.

MediaMonks, 2016

MediaMonks was approached to create a bold front-end design for the global platform. The design, built around the launch of their new wireless headphones, shows the company’s obsession with sound and technology. I got tasked with transforming the beautifully crafted desktop designs of key pages, such as the home page, product detail pages, category pages and campaign pages into great mobile experiences.

Shell Annual Reports and Publications
MediaMonks, 2017
Lead Designer

Each year Shell publishes a comprehensive operational and financial report: The Annual Report. Besides this report, a Sustainability Report and an Investors’ Handbook is released, too. These reports feature hundreds of articles with comprehensive data and statistics, and also include comparison tools, a download centre and handy chart generators. As the lead designer on this project, my goal was to design a striking new look for all pages, including multiple versatile modules for the hundreds of data-rich article pages; all meeting the company’s accessibility goals.

All imagery and data displayed in the images above are for demo purposes only. They do not reflect actual data from Shell's 2017 reports.

MediaMonks, 2015

“Design a responsive splash page for the (fictional) release of the adidas F50 shoe by adidas and Lionel Messi”: This short and sweet brief is what you’ll get when applying for an internship at MediaMonks. So that’s what I did. In a weekend’s work, I designed both desktop and mobile designs. Since the product features such striking colors, I decided to base the design on just that. Brightly colored powders, imagery and UI elements on top of a dark background create great contrast and really make the colors – and thus the product – stand out.

Browsing random Airbnb listings is fun, but there are better ways of finding out about your next travel destination. Meet Airbnbmag: Airbnb’s magazine MediaMonks was tasked to design based on the Airbnbmag print version. Every month, a selection of amazing, long read articles were transformed into beautiful online experiences. As the designed of mainly the articles, I got the honor of designing a couple of articles and creating a styleguide to make sure all feature articles are consistent in look and feel.

Freelance, 2016
Design, Illustration

LeadLogic is a young, bright team of online marketers from The Netherlands. To easily show and explain their unique way of working to potential clients, the company asked me to design a brochure that will truly stand out in their field; Something clients won’t throw away after the meeting. In stead of showing boring charts, dull content and free stock photos of an employees’ desk – like every other marketing company – we went for a far more unique and visually striking option: The 4-fold brochure is full of illustrations that show the employees, process, products and clients in a truly charming and personal way.

Logos and marks
Non-profit, freelance (2011 — current)

A selection of logos and marks I created for companies, non-profits, school projects, side-projects, et cetera. I created a lot of logos in the last few years; these are some of my favourites.

Freelance, 2018
Design, Branding

Saled is a LED provider based in The Netherlands with big ambitions in the lighting industry. Together with the LeadLogic team I worked on creating this company brochure, showing their products, way of working and previous projects. Without any branding guidelines, it was my task to create a visually impressive product in a relatively short timeline, that will also set a basis for the company’s future communication materials and corporate identity.

MediaMonks, 2016

Magic.Kinder is an immersive, online world where kids can play and learn, safely. After creating the desktop and tablet version, I got tasked with translating the experience to mobile devices, so kids can enjoy all games and interactive stories wherever they want.

PetSpace (concept)
MediaMonks, 2016

Annenberg PetSpace is a new community center based in Playa Vista, Los Angeles, founded by Wallis Annenberg. It's goal is to strengthen the animal-human bond through educational programs and adoption. Before any design guidelines were known, my task was to make a quick exploration for a interactive landingpage in both style and functionality.

Non-profit, freelance, 2014 (— current)
Designer, front-end developer

IJsselmeervogels is the most successful team in the highest Dutch amateur football league, the “Tweede Divisie”. I started playing football at “The Reds” as an 8 year old and was building ‘unofficial’ websites for my team not much later. Needless to say it was a big honor - and a lot of fun - when I got tasked to design and build the official website for the club years later. After a long period of research, design iterations and development the site was released and was met with very positive feedback from club supporters, players and sponsors. In the following years I kept working on improving the club’s branding and corporate identity in my spare time.
