Content Creation & Visual Storytelling
Travel & design productions
Content. Veerle Symoens' extensive experience in PR, journalism and advertising means that she understands both sides of the story. Her passion for content - in text and images - allow her to voice a brand's commercial goals in custom content projects that inspire. From concept creation to international production, Veerle offers creativity, perseverance and originality.
Collages. Veerle also creates personal art. She started instinctively tearing out images that caught her eye in all the magazines that crossed her hands. She set to work with scissors, glue, paint, markers and her own photography to recreate a very personal atmosphere and composition. Today, her mixed media collages are exhibited and sold worldwide.
