ANIKÓ VAN NIE
AMBASSADOR OF CONTEMPORARY ART & DESIGN
CREATIVE STRATEGIC DESIGNMANAGER
Sales and marketing professional with 6+ years of experience in the contemporary art and design industry and various sales environments. Involved in management, (online) marketing, sales, user research, brand strategy and stimulating teamwork.
As a creative strategic deisgnmanager I focus on analyzing and improving the work process of multidisciplinary designteams. Analysis is achieved by using an array of 'Design Thinking' tools to carry out niche specific market research, as well as internal research for companies. Findings are used to produce marketing and policy advises as well as cultural products and services.
As an ambassador of contemporary art & design I experienced collaborating with and representing over 250 artists and selling artworks/designs up to $100k comfortably. Including collections of exclusive and rare work. I have experienced that working autonomously in an international environment, while being active in local art communities is completely different than working for a large size gallery or auction house.
I prefer to work in a more personal and transparent environment, working one on one with clients and within a community-based cultural space, learning how to maintain and develop a long-term client relationship and attracting partnerships with real-estate, architects, yachting agencies, 5 star hotels, cultural associations, museums, galleries and artists.
