Mikon van Gastel is a Holland native and international talent who brings to the design process an expertise in film, new media and architecture and an openness to embrace new forms of collaboration and emerging technologies. He is also the creative director and director at A Very Small Office, which he co-founded with producer Saffron Case in 2005. As creative director, van Gastel has designed title sequences for feature films and theatrical trailers.
As a director he has directed commercial campaigns for Target, Nike, Reebok, Olympus, Acura, GMC, L'Oreal, Dove, Heineken, Absolut and Smirnoff. And his explorations in architecture and motion have resulted in the electronic signage design for the new Museum of Modern Art in New York (where his work is also part of the permanent collection) and, with United Architects, was one of six finalists for the redevelopment of the former World Trade Center site.
