Meet the Tricks team

Creativity, experience, and the pioneering spirit to make big things happen. We believe these are the ingredients for a powerful marketing campaign. Thankfully we all share these things in common at Tricks for Bricks.

Peter De Smedt

Managing director

Marketing is second nature to Peter. From confectionery to forklift trucks, insurance policies to cars, and pacemakers to real estate, there are few products to which Peter has not applied his training and expertise over the years. His passion for the sales and marketing has taken him as a consultant to leading companies, at home and abroad.

In 2007, Peter co-founded the first marketing agency specialising in real estate developments in Belgium. This provided new insight into the marketplace and Peter realised there were great untapped opportunities in this area. Which is how Tricks for Bricks came along.For Peter, free time means travel and new horizons. An enthusiastic sailor, he prefers destinations on the water.

Els Westhovens

Graphic Designer

Els has the full package. Ability, talent, insight and most of all, extensive experience. But you wouldn’t expect anything less from a graphic designer who made her name in the packaging world. And we think it’s great. Because it means that Els knows how to handle complex graphic models. And is an absolute force when it comes to branding and logos. We all benefit from this. Because good graphic design is about having an eye for detail. Which Els certainly has. Together with a charming Limburg accent.

When Els isn’t wrapped up in typography and printing techniques, she is on vacation. Preferably at a destination where there are awesome chefs.
