About Reuben van Esterik

My name is Ruben van Esterik. Freelance animator / motion designer, concept thinker and animation trainer! Independent entrepreneur in the creative industry for over 10 years and with a nice diverse arsenal of customers in various segments. I develop TV commercials, social videos, web videos, spatial projections and much more for customers such as Videoland, Kunstmuseum Den Haag, Shimano , Mentos and American Express.




Stefan Sagmeister has been an inspiration for quite some time. His out of the box, unconventional way of thinking and working makes him unique. I had the honor of having a long chat with him at a festival over a beer. Super relaxed, smart and open person. Also companies like Buck (, Pixar and countless others!
I would like to follow the line I have now set. Various projects with a unique approach and style each time. I would, however, like to grow a bit in order to be able to run more and, above all, better productions. Hence soon Studio van Esterik!
Sagmeister & Walsh – Beauty. Literally Beautiful! The design, layout, and visual examples in this book are amazing! I appreciate their statement and explanation that beauty is functional, and how that challenges modern perspectives on design.
New challenges and successfully completing tough challenges!
Funnel as much as possible at the start of a trajectory. Eliminate the ability to choose from 'EVERYTHING' anywhere. Set rules, keep it clear and be creative with the chosen ingredients.
