Daphne Westland is an Amsterdam based Creative Director.
Having trained as a graphic designer and worked for several advertising agencies,
Daphne Westland moved on to apply her aptitude for bold typography to the art direction,
design (and re-design) of mostly fashion editorial titles during the last 15 years.
Daphne has been praised for her distinct eye for detail, her ability to underline a message through visuals,
her openness and enthusiasm for new techniques, designers and photographers and her great passion
for art and design. She has been nominated numerous times for several awards for her art direction.
Having completed the Art Direction Mastered programme in 2017 to better understand
the challenges of the business she faces everyday, she soon realized her true passion
was in interior, set design and still life.
Daphne creates concepts and images for editorial features, advertising campaigns
and catalogues to help brands create their own personality. Her work can be described as bold and simple,
a mix of play, colour, humor and graphic sets. She likes to play with different types of materials, textures and colors
taking care of the composition and the lighting, applying storytelling to communicate the brand values.
The process starts from concept through Art direction and set design to the final idea.
Currently she’s exploring the boundaries between real and virtual world. This causes confusion but
equally provides an array of possibilities, creativity and innovation to create high-impact images.
