First this.

Principles that are so essential

When designers contact us the majority of these designers have a have a fashion background. For us fashion is something completely different. Designing for fashion may look the same as for interior, but believe me this is like comparing cricket with baseball. Therefor I will guide you through a few principals that are so essential for interior.

Terms and conditions

For all of our free-lance designers we have the same terms and conditions. These terms and conditions are strict and not negotiable. If you find these terms and conditions not acceptable in the first place, there is no further use in contacting us.

  • If you contact us, one of the procedures is, that you send us some small JPG's (300 kb max.)or a PDF with designs or items you have created in the past. We will evaluate these pictures and conclude if the particular "hand" would be a good addition to our portfolio. Not all good designers or good designs are interesting for us.

  • We carefully watch over our total portfolio. We will not create opposite interests in one portfolio. That means that we are not interested in "more of the same" designs in one collection. This would mean that we would create a kind of competition in our own portfolio between our existing designers.

  • All designers have to sign an agreement in which clearly all "does and don'ts" are stated. One of the most important issues is that the designer guarantees the originality of the designs. On request, we can send you a copy of the agreement.

  • We also have a very intense cooperation with several agents in The US, Japan and Korea and UK who sell our portfolio. Your designs will be showcased on an international platform.

  • During the process of designing you offer the possibility to get instant feedback by using Email, or WhatsApp.

  • We will provide you with information that is essential for creating commercial designs. We have very good and intense contacts with several trend watchers and trend documentation. You will get the newest trend information at first hand. We will share this information with all of our designers.

  • Verbeekdesigns is well known for their commercial designs. Nevertheless, we think it important to have a part of the collection that is innovative as well as trendy.
