About Me

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 and web design. I am a full-stack designer who loves the intersection of design and code.

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 2004 I also discovered the internet and made my first website and from that moment learned about CSS, HTML, Javascript, PhP, Web Standards, Semantics, Accessibility, etc., .. and never stopped improving and developing my skills and knowledge.

After the bankruptcy of my last employer, in 2006, I established my own design studio and gonzodesign was officially ‘born’. My main ambition and occupation is designing corporate ID’s and (WordPress) websites for my much beloved clients.

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

Gonzo the Great

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 creating 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. I’m available for freelance projects and full-time employment, remote or in-house.
