Oxytocin (2013)

Publication design for dutch artist Emmeline de Mooij coinciding with her show 'Oxytocin' at Legion TV, London, UK.


Website designed in collaboration with Denny Backhaus for SSBA-SALON. The website is an online cultural magazine and focal point for what's going on in Amsterdam. The website is designed as an 'app' environment, so it works perfectly on both desktop and tablet devices, a scaled down version of the website was developed for the iPhone. The design of the site was of based on the identity that I designed for SSBA-SALON.

Nabeeld (2012)

Publication design for dutch artist Amie Dicke to accompany her solo exhibition at the GEM museum of modern art in the Hague. The newspaper consists of an interview with Amie and an overview of her work. Central to her exhibition is a work that revolves around the history of the Gemeente Museum, where the exhibition took place. The design of the newspaper partly consists of a grid of thick beams. The beams form a composition on the front page and change their position as you go through the publication. The beams then come together again in a different colour composition on the last page. The beam-structure is built upon a square grid, that together with the used colours refer to H.P. Berlage, who is the architect of the GEM museum of modern art. The structure acts as an intervention, interacting with the tekst and images of Amie's work.


Publicity design for I Can Change The World With My Two Hands. A communal garden project initiated by artist Natascha Hagenbeek.


Identity for SSBA-SALON, initiated by Amsterdam's city theatre as a cultural platform. Salon mainly functions as an online platform, but also organizes events in and around Amsterdam. The main focus of the identity is based on three overlaying sheets of paper, that in combination with the typography convey the idea of a manifest. The salon itself being a manifestation of cultural urgency.
