About Me

Hello there!

I am Paaj. Put it in reverse and you got my name, or is it the other way around? Well, my full name is Jaap Nicolaas Dekker. Raised in the east of the Netherlands, living in the west. To be more exact, in Amsterdam. As a kid I was a huge fan of Michael Jackson and was fascinated by Dinosaurs. I’ve been blessed to have seen ‘The Land Before Time’ and ‘Jurassic Park’ in the theaters during my childhood. Besides that I danced to every song of the King of Pop.

And many years later it’s pretty much the same deal. Of course I listen to a whole lot more music and have seen a lot more movies. But I still love to dance and addicted to movies.
Besides that I love to observe. I think that looking around you is one of the basics of design. Your eyes are a very important tool. Look around, get it in your brain, process it and create something out of it. After the observation comes the creation.
