  "Led by “simplicity brings efficiency” Johan is able to cover an incredible amount of quality work that's pure, clear and accurate in a very short timeframe. This single quality alone is enough for many to be well perceived but Johan always looked a step further. With his detail-oriented approach he is always using his subtle touch to move a design from “good” to “wooooow!”. Seduce the human and your conversion will follow, isn’t it? "

  Recommendations for Team Leader / Coach / ...

Jean-Christophe Goovaerts
Former Senior Webdesigner
at LBi Belgium
  "I have worked for years in the internet industry, with several managers in different companies. With Johan it was the first time I felt real creative leadership. Johan is a designer himself and knows perfectly how to handle estimations, how the customers will react and how to get the best results. Furthermore, he is really open to suggestions and always ready to fix day-to-day problems. I'd be really happy if I got the chance to work with him again in the future! "

Loïc Wydouw
Former Account Art Director

  " Among many managers I had the opportunity to work with, Johan is probably the most “human centric”. While working with him for a web development and online marketing agency, he was leading his team like a father; always mentoring, advising and sharing his long and amazing experience to let people grow and earn additional responsibilities in a sane and positive atmosphere. Not only good at creation, Johan understands every step of the chain and helps you to stay one step ahead of problems. For sure Johan is an inescapable asset for any design project you’d like to launch!"  
Bart Van Den Kieboom
Former Client Manager at LBi Belgium,
now Managing Director at K Company.
This company hired me in 2011.
  " I have always liked working with Johan and this for many reasons. First I knew him as a very capable designer who was able to deliver on time and with high quality and then as a colleague in the management committee at LBi where he was present as Head of the Creative Design Department. He was probably one of the most humane directors I have known and it was a pleasure to work with him and his team. I wish him all the best in his future career and lucky are those who will have the chance to work with this fountain of creativity. As a small inside joke I would like to add: "Power to the Mole-rats.” "  
Dehon Blaise
Former Project Manager
at LBi Belgium
  " I have obtained much satisfaction from working with Johan. He really is a solutions guy with a lot of good advice. It's also no surprise he's appreciated in his team because his natural leadership is rooted in real human qualities."  
Pierre Somers
Former Senior Consultant / Project Manager at LBi Belgium
  " Johan is a highly skilled webdesigner - one of the few with a genuine personal style - and an enthousiastic team leader.

He is extremely focused and supports and defends his team in all circumstances i.e. when facing complex resource allocation problems. Johan brings strength, talent and confidence to design! "  
Tom Hoffmeijer
Junior Web design Intern
at LBi Belgium
  " As Head of the Creative Design Department Johan hired me in september 2009 as an intern. He has a broad field of interest and knows how to guide a team. He's a team player. Apart from that he's enormously enthousiastic, especially when he's educating his interns in his clear, calm and controlled manner. We have enjoyed working together for five months."  
David Alexander Slaager
Former Art Director
at LBi Belgium

"I have worked with Johan for quite a number of years. First he impressed me because he was presented to me as the fast and efficient B2B specialist of clean interfaces. And it has to be said he's got "the eye"! He immediately understands the client's wishes and offers him THE solution. Even down to the pixel he creates beautiful designs that are always functional. His sense of aesthetics and his eye for detail make his judgment a certainty for success. His remarks are always grounded and he systematically comes up with a solution. Over the course of the years Johan has accepted new challenges at DAD/LBi and became "Head of Design". Our collaboration continued on that basis and still he displayed that same efficiency, the willingness to compromise and listen in his search for solutions. For a freelancer like me, that was very reassuring. "

Andreea Buescu
Account Art Director
at LBi Belgium and LBi London
  " My experience with Johan as Head of the Design Department was very positive. Human, caring and supporting, he was always available and attentive to his team. His trust gave us many responsabilities and opportunities to learn, grow and achieve success on big projects for our main clients. Working with Johan was a rewarding experience I'd enjoy doing again. "  
Richard Cop
Former Senior Web developer and Webdesigner at LBi Belgium
  " I had the great pleasure of working in the service of Johan Wuyckens. He is a very good team leader and inspires his colleagues. He is a quiet, very nice guy who has mastered the art of negotiation with other departments, especially with the Projects Managers. He never seems overwhelmed by the situation... He is always in control! In addition, he's a great designer... This is a valuable asset to lead a team of designers. If I had the opportunity to work with him again, I would sign up! "  
Florence Moreau
Former Senior Web Analytics Business Consultant & P.M. at LBi Belgium
  " I have had the opportunity to work with Johan when he became the Director of the Creative Design Department. Alwyas ready to help us out with the allocation of the talents within his team, he also proved to be an excellent Art Director. His experience and the quality of his work always shone through in the design deliveries. It has always been a pleasure working with this excellent designer and team leader."
