They didn’t go for the tulips and windmills, the bikes and canals, or the beer and soccer. Gram Garner and John Yum went to the Netherlands for the design firms.

“The Netherlands have the most designers per capita, and they are world leaders for wonderful creative work,” says Texas State communication design professor Claudia Röschmann.

Garner and Yum both developed strong admiration for Dutch designers while they were Röschmann’s students. With help from Röschmann, plus hard work and significant stores of moxie, Garner and Yum both secured internships and then jobs with their “dream companies” – Undog and Dietwee, respectively – in the Netherlands.
