Who we are?
Schrijfwerken is a duo +1 combining their talent and experience in storytelling, marketing, business, creating and technology: the duo Frank Willemse and Aline Juliá + the one and only Erik Willemse. We work together with equally experienced and talented graphic designers, UX-designers, photographers, SEO-experts, … We’re really good at imagining stuff and building it in reality. We are thinkers and do-ers. We can also be a pain in the ass because we’re awfully curious and don’t stop asking questions. That’s the only way we can give answers and solutions. We work as individuals and as a team. It just depends on the kind of case..

MBA, University of Antwerp
“I am a creative generalist and eclectic curiosity is my middle name. As engineer in IT holding an MBA, I am a technical geek and business mind in one”
I combine a pragmatic approach with a good sense of humour to convince, inspire and creatively communicate. I work as freelance senior business consultant helping companies and (marketing) departments with digital strategy and service design, user experience, ideation and prototyping projects.
I teach a digital design course. It started as a lecture on mobile marketing but soon evolved towards a practical hands-on workshop combining service design, user experience and everything else the students learn in the other courses in the postgraduate program. I have taught this course together with Aline Julia in the past years and, because of the success of the program and the intense follow-up and guidance we offer, Wouter Walgraeve has joined us in 2017-2018. Also, from 2017-2018, the course has officially renamed into “Digital Service Design”.
