Biography Jan Rajtoral

I was born on September 25th, 1969 in The Hague – The Netherlands. Being a child of Czech parents, I speak both Dutch and Czech flawlessly.

Since my childhood I loved to draw all the time, even back in school. Later, when I was a teenager, my family moved to Terneuzen, nearby the Belgium border. Here I learned to appreciate the beauty of Design, Art & Architecture at school. Instantly, it turned into a real passion.

Having started the study Industrial Design at the Technical Universtity of Delft in 1989, I switched to the Haagsche Hogeschool after 2 years. After my study I’ve worked for a number of well-known Dutch Design Companies like: Flex Development, DSI Design and Well Design. At my last function as senior designer at Ideko I also specialised myself inExhibition Stand Design.

Since my teenager years, the passion for Graphic Design stayed. In my free time I was making my own Cards, Tee’s, etc. in Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator. In the year 1999 I discovered Web Design and made my first website and from that moment learned about W3C, CSS, (X)HTML, SEO, etc., … and never stopped learning.

After the bankruptcy of my last employer, in 2006, I started my own designstudio:gonzodesign, creative solutions was officially ‘born’. My main passion and occupation is designing Logo’s, Brochures, Stationaries, Business Cards, Enveloppes and Web Sites for my Clients at gonzodesign.
