About Rob, the studio and a little history

Once upon a time...

It started with a bachelor in Design and Multimedia. After that I was a teacher for many years at the Noorderpoort Art and Multimedia School in Groningen. I started graphic design when I was young and was co-owner of a web agency for ten years

Studio 1902 was founded in 2017 and owes its name to my beautiful house in Baflo, where Anno 1902 adorns the facade. I work from home, which means that you often see a cat, child or my wife walking through the screen when we're video conferencing. The variety of working independently and together on beautiful projects is what makes me love what I do.

Rob de Kort.

Besides development and design work, I like cooking, music, theater and gaming. I also have a preference for anything that has a plug. Furthermore, I am a cat person, father of two and happy with the opportunity to light a fire in my garden, but also to be able to decide to make a long journey.

Rob is one of Statamic's competitive advantages. His kindness, code, and critical thinking makes the community a better place.

My work

I would describe my style as minimalistic and modern. My websites always match my clients message, with an eye for beautiful design. What I absolutely stand for, is user friendliness: managing a CMS shouldn't be harder than writing a Word doc. I also think privacy and accessibility are important parts of my job.

What drives me, is the infinite change in web development. Without exaggeration: I learn every single day and I keep improving and refining. My way of working is personal and I do things with care. I don’t like keeping up appearances. Simply because being yourself brings out the best in others.

Working with Rob is very pleasant. From a clear quote within the deadline to a slick website. He works quickly, is knowledgeable and proactively comes up with improvements. Very satisfied!
