Designtree worked with many publishers and editors when growing ideas.
Here is what a few of them say.

Hilmar Mulder
editor-in-chief, Libelle

"Besides being a joy to work with, Dorien is a take-charge person who is able to present creative ideas and communicate the benefits. Dorien successfully developed the design structure for Grazia. She was also a key figure in directing the design team during the start up period. " 


Ben Rogmans
publisher Dagblad De Pers

"Dorien Franken is by far the best designer I have ever met in my long career as a journalist, editor-in-chief and publisher. She has a helicopterview as well as an eye for details. She works hard, is straight-forward, honest, clear in what she wants to be done, eager to learn, willing to listen." 


Harriet Calo
owner of Isn't it

"Demonstrating an incredible initiative and a strong dedication, I find Dorien Franken a one of a kind designer who combines her professional skills, with a very warm and attentive presence. (No wonder that a dear friendship has grown from our working relationship in the passing years.") 


Loes van Dokkum
creative director,
G+J Media Custom Content

"Everything she designs, looks absolutely beautiful and resonates perfectly with the needs and preferences of its readers. But there is certainly substance to her taste and aesthetic - she makes sure the magazine aligns with your brand values, communication goals and corporate identity. Dorien is a highly intelligent, charming and warm person. Would love to work with her again. Soon!"

Marije Tolsma-Groen
head of internal communications,
NN Investment Partners

"Working with Dorien is such a pleasant experience! She combines her creativity with amazing design skills, perfectionism, a resourceful network and a can-do mentality. With her sensitivity for (company) culture, she was able to translate an initial concept into perfect execution within a short period of time."
