About.

MOTIVATED BY THE IMPOSSIBLE.

When he was born with an extreme case of strabismus, doctors told his parents that he would never be able to make proper use of his sight. Then they told him he couldn’t write because he had dyslexia. Now, he proofs them all wrong.

In his early days, Ton Eijkemans sought a career within the field of information technology. He had a clear understanding of how to assemble all kinds of things and computers didn’t hold many secrets to him. But as a passion for photography and visual media ignited within him he switched tracks to pursue a career within the realm of graphic design, photography and motion picture. His creative work has been published in various Dutch newspapers and magazines and Ton also won several awards with his photography and short films. In the end, he found the perfect match between his IT skills and his creativity within the field of marketing. Marketing relies both on strong (visual) communication skills and know-how of the digital realm, and Ton has a clear understanding of both.

Besides his career as a marketeer and hobby photographer, Ton is also active in the field of screenwriting. Having read numerous screenplays for studio validation and weekly visits to the cinema Ton has created a deep understanding of story structure and dramatic conflict. Currently, Ton has written one feature, one short, a comic book and a children’s book, and more work is on the way as he keeps on writing.

BREAKING THE 4TH WALL.

Within stage productions, there is a term called ‘breaking the 4th wall’. It means that an actor breaks the imaginary wall that stands in between him and his audience and that separates the world on the stage from the world inside of the theatre. Marketing is just like breaking the 4th wall.
01. AUDIENCE

There are many ways to reach out to an audience, but every audience desires another approach to reach. Before I create any content I want to understand the people that I want to reach out to. With my IT knowledge and market research experience, I can create a clear image of the target group that I translate into the proper content.

02. CONTENT

I have a great passion for design and the psychology behind design. What emotions are carried over by colours and shapes? And what combination of words can ignite curiosity or trigger someone into action?  It’s this knowledge that I apply in my designs to stand out to an audience and reach them in a way they haven’t been reached before.

03. ANALYTICS

As an actor on stage, you see the reaction of your audience, within markering this isn’t always the case. That’s why there are some great tools available to show you the reactions within your target group, you just need to understand how to read this information. I understand this form of language and can translate it easily into a form that makes it readable for everyone.

Writing.

LIES THAT TELL THE TRUTH.

A fictional story is always a lie. It’s an exaggeration of real life, cut into the most interesting parts and told in a way that has the strongest emotional impact on you, the reader. But these combined lies that make a good story often tell a form of the truth that can’t be explained with only words, It’s a truth that needs to be felt.

Everyone has great story ideas, but most of these stories never see the light of day. The art of writing is getting these stories out on paper and sharing them with the world. It all sounds very easy, but I can tell you from my own experience that it isn’t. Writing is an adventure with a lot of tough challenges and setbacks along the way. There are rules to follow and writers blocks to overcome.

I learned it all the hard way when I wrote my first feature screenplay ‘Scary’, which took me over two years to complete. It was a struggle from start to finish, but we learn from struggles, they teach us things, and looking back at this period, it has been one of the most insightful periods of my life, and so I started to write on a new story, eager to struggle again and learn some more.

Currently, I have written one feature screenplay, two shorts, and one comic, and I’m currently in the process of writing a new feature. Some of my screenplays have been featured on The Red List and participated in international contests. For me, writing is purely a hobby at the moment. I like doing it, and people from inside and outside of the industry seem to appreciate my work.

The new PC you purchased yesterday is already outdated today. It’s fascinating to see the power of these machines and even more staggering to see how they have changed our way of life over the past few decades. Nobody can get around these devices anymore and if you miss out on this rapidly evolving technology, you will miss out on the future.
01. WEBDESIGN

There are over 1.7 billion websites on the internet, so how did you land on this specific one? Well, that’s due to my marketing knowledge and IT expertise. A website needs to work across all sorts of devices and everything needs to be optimized so that search engines can find it. Everything to stay ahead of all those other 1.7 billion websites.

02. SUPPORT SPECIALIST

First, restart your computer, it will solve 9 out of 10 problems, I promise. If this doesn’t work for you, use Google to find the problem you encountered, maybe you think you are the only one with this specific problem, but I can guarantee you’re not. Still can’t fix it? Contact me and with my experience, I will fix your problem.

03. ASSEMBLING

Did you know that there are over 170.000 possible combinations to pimp up your coffee at the local Starbucks? So why choose a computer that only has one flavour? By assembling your own PC you have endless possibilities, and putting one together isn’t as hard as it looks, I did it several times already.
