Hello! My name is Niek Hendrik Grootendorst. I am a motion designer based in Utrecht, the Netherlands. 
My favorite way to express my creativity is through fictional characters. I’ve always loved designing all different kinds of characters, representing a wide range of personalities, emotions and general roles in society. 
Because of my everlasting love for drawing by hand, I quickly gravitated towards 2D frame-by-frame animation. Using this technique gives me a sense of freedom and expressiveness for creating my animations.
If you're interested in learning more about my creative process, consider watching this video essay I made giving some more insight: Click here. 
On this website you will find many examples of my work. Please take a look around and enjoy.
