Maria Nguyen:
Co founder CRE8 / Marketing
After Maria graduated as Industrial Designer at Delft University of Technology she went on to gain marketing experience working at electronics giant Philips and several non-profit organizations.

The combination of the CRE8 Foundation and Venture allows us to offer our services in a socially responsible way. Thanks to the blend of practical coaching provided in the workshops and the support given by Stichting Streetcornerwork, the trainees who work for us are not only able to operate the machinery but can also communicate well with our customers. In this way we are positively contributing to the career chances of these young people. By combining the foundation with the commercial venture, CRE8 can act as an independent organization with our own strategy and project management.

The venture is lead by Jurre and Maria offers services around digitale fabrication for business clients and for the purpose of the fabrication of our self designed consumer products. Please feel free to contact us for advice and design services concerning prototyping and production of your product – we can accompany you from start to finish in the process of developing a product.


Our product collection can be seen in our webshop or on display in our workshop at the Westerdoksdijk. Almost all products are designed by us, others by friends/colleagues. At this moment our products are sold at many different shops and webshops in the Netherlands, Belgium, Germany and France.
