Fenne Dijkstra Art director & Visual consultant

Fenne is specialized in design thinking and Art direction and has a background in Marketing & E-commerce. As a kid she used to hate school and drawing was her only way out. Her parents were shocked when she decided to go to the College of fine arts and again when she decided to move to the other side of the world: Sydney. When she returned to Amsterdam she started a family. During the Covid19 she noticed the need for extra help for parents who are facing the challenge of combining the role of a parent and home teacher while having a job of their own too. And then team JOP was born. She is extremely thrilled to see her concept come to live with the help of a fantastic team. In her free time she sings in a jazz band and likes to kitesurf. 

Her favourite inspirational quote - “quoting is for dummies. I only quote myself ;-)”

I’m dedicated to visualize JOP and help parents create more time for their own JOB”
