With a background in advertising and fashion, Robin has been working as an independent creative marketing professional since 2010. He believes in value-driven creativity, in helping people and meaningful brands to establish a relevant and long-lasting impact. Robin currently works on various projects for companies like Impact Hub Amsterdam and the sustainable denim brand Kuyichi, but his main focus is his own venture, Citinerary.
Citinerary is a public service that invites travelers to explore city life through meeting local citizens and inspiring stories captured by city correspondents. With an online meets offline approach, Robin hopes to change people’s perceptions of how we actually live in a city like Amsterdam. A social context, an exchange of culture and lifestyle. A City Made By People. http://citinerary.net/
