Joukje Akveld

Joukje Akveld (b. 1974) is a writer, translator and journalist. She writes picture books and non-fiction for children and adults. Her work has been translated worldwide and has won two Zilveren Griffel awards (annual prize for the best children’s books in the Netherlands), two nominations for the prestigious Woutertje Pieterse Prize and two Vlag & Wimpel awards. She also translates picture books, and her writing as a journalist has regularly been featured in national publications such as Vrij NederlandTrouwKidsweek and Het Parool.

Joukje asked me te recreate her Dutch website and translate it to English. She couldn’t get in touch with the admin of the Dutch website / server, so we decided to host the English website on a subdomain and point it to another server.


Aurox, a USA based DeFi company, is on a journey to change the financial world by leveraging all the positives of DeFi and combining it with centralized user experience and a battle tested platform. The core goal of Aurox is to create a simple way for users to control their funds, execute trades across multiple exchanges and eliminate the complexities of DeFi applying CeFi user experience.

Aurox put me to work on various jobs. It started with creating images for social media. After a while, I was asked to create teaser and introduction videos for the newly released crypto wallet. I also made thousands of crypto icons for use in their wallet and terminal.

No Agenda Show

Under the pseudonym “Nykko Syme,” I create cover art for Adam Curry and John C. Dvorak’s Podcast: The No Agenda Show (also known as The Best Podcast in the Universe) Twice a week during the live show, different artists create cover artwork. The piece that appeals most to the hosts, it is chosen as album art for that episode. This way all the artists participate in providing “Value4Value“.
