Projects 2009 — 2023

Hi there 👋, this is Robbert Mastebroek speaking. I'm a designer from The Netherlands who started studying graphic design when I was 15 – and opened shop as a freelance designer a year later. Eight years and two design degrees later I joined Media.Monks, the world’s most awarded creative digital agency, creating digital experiences and platforms for the world's largest brands.

I also co-founded the sustainable sneaker brand TŌ, where I'm heading product design and creative direction.

Things I kinda know a lot about include anything e-commerce, fashion, online platforms, web/digital technologies, design and typography.

Get in touch

I'm available for freelance work: I like helping organisations, start ups and brands with design challenges, branding and digital strategies. If you're in for a good talk, here's how to get to me:

Media.Monks, 2023
Art Director, Lead Designer

Crafting everything from the creative concept through strategy and production; I developed an interactive web journey leading visitors to discover their Angel identity and a stunning NFT collection in collaboration with 3D artist Marc Tudisco. Hyped by sleek, animated teaser videos—the 300 NFT Angels sold out on OpenSea in under 30 seconds, making it the fastest selling NFT collection on the platform so far. By creating an exciting new way for fans to identify with the Mugler brand we showed how a fresh approach can generate enduring cultural cachet.

MediaMonks, 2021
Digital Designer

At MediaMonks, we redesigned the platform, preparing it for the big launch of the groundbreaking, all-in-one Oculus Quest 2 headset. As the main designer on the MediaMonks' Amsterdam team, I collaborated with our creative teams (fellow designers, copywriters, creatives, etc.) in Melbourne, New York and Los Angeles, enabling a unique 24 hour per day production structure for our client. Over several weeks, we went from pitch and exploration to final delivery of the final platform, in close collaboration with the team over at Oculus.

Personal Project, 2021—2023
Co-founder, Creative Direction

During COVID times, the stars aligned just right: A life-long dream of launching my own brand turned into a reality. With 2 co-founders, I launched TŌ Inspired by Japanese craftsmanship, the brand provides customers with high-quality products that are ethically and sustainably produced.

As the co-founder and creative director, I am responsible for a wide range of activities within the company: Product design and development, marketing, digital strategy, design and development of the online e-commerce platform, and sales to digital retailers and platforms such as Zalando, Bol and Miinto.
MediaMonks, 2018

With the MediaMonks team, I was fortunate enough to help Viacom develop a punchy, new corporate website right when they were in the middle of launching a rebrand. Corporate websites often play it safe, but we wanted to make Viacom’s site just as much fun to explore as Viacom’s networks are to watch, which often push envelopes with a playfully rebellious attitude. A big part of this process was to highlight Viacom’s massive library of great content. To achieve this, we implemented several fun interactions and tactile elements into the design. We call this “cherry content,” named after the “cherry on top” of a cake or sundae. This unobtrusive content serves to prove and support the value proposition that brands put forward, allowing users to choose to scroll by or dive deeper by interacting with it directly.

In 2021-22, ViacomCBS got rebranded to Paramount. This also meant the website had to be completely redesigned – a project I had the honor to lead the creative direction and design production of.

Logos and Rebrands
Freelance (2011 — current)

A selection of logos I created – often part of a bigger rebranding effort. For all these projects I was advising the company on its rebranding the lead designer on each project. Hover over each logo to see the project date. mobile platform
MediaMonks, 2016

MediaMonks was approached to create a bold front-end design vision for the global platform. The design, built around the launch of their new wireless headphones, shows the company’s obsession with sound and technology. I lead the design of the mobile experience of the platform, including the design of the .com's home page, product detail pages, category pages and campaign pages.

L'OR Espresso Platform
MediaMonks, 2017

With the MediaMonks team, we worked on the UX and Design of a new e-commerce platform for the L'OR Espresso brand. Besides designing the full e-commerce flow including account pages and check-out layouts, we also designed captivating and immersive landing pages for the new L'OR Barista product.
