Rotterdam, 20150210 - Today DAFNE.com has appeared, a new English-language online magazine about Dutch creative work. Dafne stands for Design, Dance, Architecture, Fashion, News, E-Culture and Entertainment.
The Dutch creative industry consists of 97, 000 companies. 47% of these are small businesses. Thanks to the digital revolution, freelancers can now run a webshop and reach online customers all over the world. This is a great opportunity for the export and status of the Netherlands as a knowledge and innovation economy. 62% of all companies in the creative industry invest in innovation, resulting in an inexhaustible stream of innovative designs.
Dafne is a shop window for these creative companies and designers. An online treasure room filled with inspiring, sexy and surprising creations. Products, services and designs to dream of. Readers will see high-profile furniture, innovative homes and skyscrapers, listening to trance or rock music; see stylish fashion shows or the latest games and apps.
Dafne's definition of Dutch design is based on the global economy and open borders. Dafne will be the international stage for creative entrepreneurs in the Netherlands and from the Netherlands. There is room for Dutch architects from New York, a Moroccan clothing designer who has studied in the Netherlands and Dutch car designers with their latest French and German models.
Dafne is in English and shows an international audience a creative and open Netherlands without the usual tulips and windmills. The magazine does not dwell too much on Dutch origin, but focuses on what is interesting, stylish and sexy, to offer readers an inspiring experience. The website will mix famous names with young talents who already have a webshop but do not yet attract an international audience.
The magazine also reports on economic aspects of the creative industry and receives a special section where creative companies can find links to government regulations. Because the creative industry is a Top Sector, there are numerous stimulation programs, but to fathom it for many creative professionals is just as nice as a visit to the dentist. Dafne can not make that more fun but tries to help find the way to the appropriate scheme.
