spatial design
visual communication

Founded in 2017 by like minded architect Jos Blom and designer Johan Nijhoff, Novemberbravo combines multiple disciplines: spatial design, architecture and scenography, with strong roots in applied visual communication. Our clients like to describe our work as readable concepts with an ever aesthetic approach. Multi layered spatial experiences without losing focus on its audience. Depending on the project we are able to scale up or down our team using a network of experienced designers. By managing small and efficient teams under one roof we believe the product will carry out stronger and more coherent enhancing the overall visitors experience. Curious what we can do for you?
