Dani Polak · Art Director


I’m a multidisciplinary art director originally from Amsterdam, currently traveling the world fulltime ⟶.

I like to create products, services, platforms, art projects and ad campaigns with a digital heart and soul. I did so at CODE D’AZUR Amsterdam, TBWA\Neboko and AKQA Amsterdam. My work has been featured in Vogue, on the BBC, The Verge, PSFK, Gizmodo and more.

I'm the co-founder of The Big Internet Museum († 2017), guest instructor at the JUNIOR* Academy for art direction and occasional jury member. Next to amazing ad campaigns and revolutionary start-ups I like anything that works on batteries and split pea soup. Yes, split pea soup.

Besides this small piece of writing there’s also an alternative way to get to know me; through this project called Internet Dani ⟶
