We design stuff. Hence our name: Designer Kollektiv. At the time it was different: in 1962 the founders started out in an empty Atomic Bomb shelter, designing creative concepts for their first clients. Artwork, Design, Photography and soon film as well. And to make things viable, there was a true sales rep chasing clients. A very successful team of 4 dedicated Designers: Dirk, Karel, Leo and Victor. Hence the name DKLV. Fastforward to now: we still create artwork, images, films and movies. The equipment has changed, creativity is still as alive as it was back then. We create things for you. Our motto: Design for you.
