About


John Doubleyou or Jan Waatze Schuurman Hess (1995)  as his dutch friends like to call him, is a Graphic designer from the Netherlands working from Montreal, Canada.

Jan Waatze is a designer of fun stuff. Astonishment, amazement and burning questions are the motivation for his works in which also sensitive subjects are not being avoided. Jan Waatze translates his subjects and/or stories in a surprising way and reshapes the expectations of his audience. Jan Waatze's works are not directly a representation of his own opinions but they create a space in which everyone has the posibillity to shape his/her own opinion, created with the help of humour and interaction.
