Meet Niek
February 4th, 2013

Guy Vernes is run by a group of nine friends (most of them know each other from high school). We do pretty much everything in-house; from design to photography and from legal matters to bookkeeping. Driven by a genuine passion and an endless creative spirit we’ve established a brand that is untainted and fun, celebrating creativity in its purest form. We’re very proud to share this with people from all over the world and we believe it’s time to introduce to you the people behind Guy Vernes. Meet Niek, our interactive art director (designs websites, apps and such).

Niek Dekker

Currently obsessed with
Trinidad James – All Gold Everything. Both video and song.

Supernatural power I would like to possess
Teleportation! Definitely. I would be in a different country every day.

When I was 13, I was wearing
An XL white and baby blue AND1 sweat-suit. I know. Beautiful.

What’s on my nightstand right now
A framed photo of the first Guy Vernes shoot back in 2010. No joke.

Dream vacation
Japan. Which is happening this March. すごい!

Favorite historical figure
Leonardo da Vinci

Best party ever
I’m going to have to go with our very own The Hibbit! Kind of a local phenomenon, The Hibbit is a party thrown every four months by homie Bilal al Mashta and myself. We play our favorite hiphop tracks, both old and new.

Favorite day trip out of the city
Antwerp. Which is still a city. But I like cities.

Favorite place for coffee
Cafe Walvis in Amsterdam (Spaandammerbuurt)

Favorite place for hamburgers
Five Guys in New York. Or homemade burgers by Andrew.

Favorite Guy Vernes item
In apparel, that’d be the basic Guy tee from last season. I wear it all the time. And if I can sneak a second one in here, absolutely love The Apologia Sokratous artwork.
