Meet Andrada. Lead Designer at Adyen Design. The in-house design agency for Dutch company Adyen, a platform to simplify and accelerate global payments. Andrada – from Bucharest - graduated from the Gerrit Rietveld Academie, an international university of applied sciences for Fine Arts and Design in Amsterdam, and has been working for Adyen Design for five years now. We asked her a few questions about Adyen Design, their collaboration with Dutch Digital Design, and their plans for 2020.
Who are Adyen Design?
We are a young design team creating international advertising campaigns, event materials, the interiors of the 21 Adyen offices across the globe, and much more. Being in-house we can respond fast, and know the brand inside out. We are the brand ambassadors. Starting back in 2013, we believed that we needed to give our brand a personality, create an experience that translates exactly what Adyen represents: a great, unique, tech-driven product that offers a simple, reliable and seamless payment process to merchants, including Ebay, Spotify and Etsy. Working as a team across cultures and time zones, we also seek expertise from outside our agency. To ensure that we are always able to come up with new ideas relevant to our product, services and merchants. We collaborate. Within Adyen, but also beyond.
Why did you decide to become a Dutch Digital Design Partner Brand?
We are a truly Dutch company. Global, but proud to be Dutch. Proud to support and promote Dutch Digital Design. We saw this as an excellent opportunity to collaborate with the best Dutch digital design agencies in the Netherlands. To learn, to be inspired, and to share knowledge. To be close to the source, to so much digital creative talent, is amazing. And, of course, Dutch Digital Design is a great platform to showcase our own work as well.
It’s the season to be jolly, and the new year is approaching soon. What will 2020 bring for Adyen and Adyen Design?
In 2020 we are looking forward to learn even more. To be even better than the year before. We want to offer the best payment experience out there. Offering unique solutions that provide simplicity and reliability to our merchants, but being fun and engaging at the same time. First point of call in the new year: re-designing our website. Telling our story online, reflecting our great culture, our values and beliefs, and, of course, sharing our payment platform – ensuring we will always stay relevant to what’s happening in the world of global payments.
