Merten Snijders definitely deserves an honourable mention because his site was the only one in this year`s Reboot that showed me something original. His navigation is innovative, clever and perfectly executed and the attention to detail with the thumbnails being discarded from the screen when navigating to a new section gives his site that added plus.

Won’t stop until the job is done
Merten is one of the best interactive scripters I’ve worked with. Very good eye for detail and won’t stop until the job is done.

Capable of bringing his original ideas to life
Merten Snijders is a highly motivated professional with excellent skills in creating innovative interactive productions. He is not limited to proven ideas and very capable of bringing his original ideas to life.

A really jaunty hat that will liven up any workplace!
I’ve learned a lot about animation, coding and most of all teamwork from Merten. He’s the hardest working man in show business, no-one contributes the hours and dedication to making the good stuff like he does. Plus he has a really jaunty hat that will liven up any workplace!

His wide range of work
Having spent numerous hours on various projects working side by side with Merten at Perfect Fools has truly been an awesome experience. Besides very strong technical knowledge used with programming Merten possesses a great deal of aesthetic know-how regarding color, composition and form. A fantastic combination which compliments his portfolio and shines through in every bit of his wide range of work. Merten has proven himself of being a very talented artist during our time of working together, last but not least he also is a very good friend capable of adapting to new people, cultures and situations.

17 jaar lange samenwerking
Merten, bedankt voor de al 17 jaar lange samenwerking op vele uiteenlopende klussen. Van het produceren van grote web projecten en online campagnes tot het ontwikkelen van kleinere websites en fotografie. Altijd een goede, deskundige, creatieve, kritische en vooral plezierige partner aan Merten gehad.

New experience in quality pushing
My time with Merten at Perfect Fools was a new experience in quality pushing and long discussion about ideas, concept and life itself. Merten`s personalty pushed me to think one step further than I was used to. He's a reliable and a secure professional you want to have aboard when you enter projects. He makes you sleep tighter during the night. I have had the great opportunity to work with this wonderful person, to bad it was short and I hope I will have the chance again.
