creative warriors with a dream & great coffee


We’re a team of creative, inquisitive professionals with fighting spirit. Both hands-on and reflective, we turn our dreams into reality with a creative game plan – and a cup of coffee, of course! We keep each other on our toes and love translating complex (social) issues into creative, visual solutions. Duel is committed to and promotes diversity, equality and inclusion. Also in the selection of new employees. Oh, and surfing – that’s another thing that always gets us inspired.

Hederik van der Kolk

Hederik  has a sharp view on design. As an art director, he passionately and mercilessly enforces the studio’s creative regime.

Are you always busy with your work?
A lot, but not always. Life is not just about work. I make time to be with my family.

Bas de Koning

Bas is a concept thinker with a strong story. Armed with sensible ideas and a strategic visual concept, he turns spectators into active participants.

What makes your heart beat faster? I have always traveled a lot with my girlfriend and have seen a lot of the world. Now that we have children, we travel far less often. It seems fantastic to me, when the children are a little older, to show them all the beauty of the world.

Tom Munneke

Tom is the youngest member of the team.
With a ton of fresh and original design experience, he reinforces the studio.

In his mostly typographic designs, he looks for a balanced combination of digital and traditional approach.

Patricia de Koning

Patricia de Koning is the newest member of our design team. She is a graphic designer at heart and like the rest, spoiled surfer.
