About Me

About Page

My name is Jan Rajtoral — AKA Gonzo the Great — and I’m the Founder/Designer at gonzodesign, providing design services across the full spectrum of Branding: print as well as (front-end) web design!

An unique and stimulating design can express quality, attract the attention, distinguish and seduce to read or to buy.

Gonzo the Great

I was born on September 25th, 1969 in The Hague (The Netherlands). After my study — Industrial Design at the Haagsche Hogeschool — I’ve worked for a number of well-known Dutch Industrial Design companies, e.g. Flex Development, DSI Design and WeLL Design.

In the year 2000 I discovered the interwebz and made my first website and from that moment learned about CSS, HTML, Javascript, PhP, Web Standards, Semantics, etc., .. and never stopped improving and developing my skills and knowledge.

After the bankruptcy of my last employer, in 2006, I started my own design studio and gonzodesign was officially ‘born’. My main ambition and occupation is designing Brand Identities and (Responsive) Websites for my clients.

There’s something to be said about working with passionate business owners that truly love what they do. I’m no different. I started my business because I honestly enjoy to create something beautiful every day that has the ability to impact others.

If you’re looking for a hard working, experienced, skilled and very down-to-earth designer then look no further and view the online version of my Résumé or check my Linkedin account.

For Whom Do I work?

My clients all come from different industries (industrial sectors, construction, service and real estate, etc), but all of them need a visual solution to a business problem. Whether it is to improve the image of your company, to communicate a certain message with your target group, or to simply sell more products, .. I can help to realize that!

But also for graphic designers, WordPress Developers, Startups, web and advertising agencies I regularly build entire websites or code the front-end (HTML, CSS, jQuery or a fully working WordPress theme). The combination of creativity, experience and technical knowledge is used to come up with practical and effective solutions for your company.

Let’s be honest and cut through the marketing fluff. You need a website that looks amazing and actually works. Bottom line, that’s what I do. And if you want to learn more about working with me, pick up the phone and give me a call (or email).
