Golden Ray Wreck Removal Animation

For the salvage company KOOLE I made this animation. This animation depicts a proposal for removing the Car Transport ship Golden Ray which was stranded on the banks of Brunswick Georgia. This ship contains several thousands of cars, which have to be removed without spoilage. That is why KOOLE proposed to put a dam made of sheet piles to contain liquids.

RIJK, Logo design

So happy I can show the redesign of the corporate identity of Stichting RIJK. Logo, website, email signature you name it everything was redesigned by me. In the briefing for the logo a few requirements were stated. These were: Contrast with previous logo Iconic Smart Simplicity But I also had to keep in mind what the story is of the organisation. Their primary business is to provide purchasing experts for Dutch municipalities. Their story could be boiled down to three points. Personal Expertise Connecting The purchasing experts of RIJK work …

Portrait of Joost

I made this portrait of my friend Joost. We go way back…I have known him for about 25 years. I have a memory of him that he was tied up on a pole wearing a toga….(long story..something..something…fraternity). But I also see him who is actively seeking spiritual liberation.

For Stichting Rijk I made, together with my friend Jorrit, a video about sustainable procurement. That is called MVI in Dutch. In this video experts of RIJK explain what kind of possibilities there are for sustainable procurement for the Dutch Municipalities. My friend Jorrit manned the camera, I did the interviews and production. Together we edited the video to make an interesting and entertaining story. You can watch the video here below.

Dolfinarium Slides

Dolfinarium is Europe’s largest marine mammal park. They asked me to make a 3d illustration to promote their new water slides. I modeled their new water slides and tried several perspectives to capture the full size. This proved to be tricky, the water slides of Dolfinarium are huge, and have pretty complex shapes. I eventually settled for an isometric perspective.  With an isometric perspective the things in front are as large as the things in the back. This perspective is often used to make maps, especially of theme parks, museums …

Sky Dive Albert Heijn

One of the other visuals I made for Albert Heijn was called Skydive. This was made for an invoicing project within their organisation. This image had to convey to take a leap of faith in the new project. In the image a cartoon figure jumps out of an airplane followed by big number of papers with euro signs on it. The character has a hand scanner in her hand pointing at the viewer.

Shrink Albert Heijn

I have made a few visuals for Albert Heijn for an internal presentation. This visual addresses the so called Shrinkage. Shrinkage means inventory loss. This loss can happen due to theft but also due to Shelf life or expiration date. Simply said, Shrink costs Money. So this visual shows that Shrink means throwing money away. In this visual standard Albert Heijn Packaging is used. The product being sold is “Fresh Money”. This money is past its expiration date so a discount sticker is put on the packaging.

KOOLE contractors

I have done some work for a big Dutch Salvage company called KOOLE contractors. Most work I did was for their international Maritime Salvage branch. Which means they clean up shipwrecks around the world. The size of the machines they use is impressive. My main job was to visualize and animate their new and innovative concepts. The owner of the company mr. Koole is very keen on developing innovative but ‘cheap’ solutions for difficult Salvage problems. So I can not show all my work I made for them yet. Some are still in development. But I can show you the animation down below that I made. This is one of the solutions proposed by KOOLE to remove containers from the North Sea Seabed that are accidentally dropped their.

The Amsterdam Canal Dragon

This is my application for the Amsterdam Light Festival 2019-2020. What is slumbering there in the Canals of Amsterdam? An unforeseen consequence: The dragon has been awoken. Rumors of his existence were always there. Spotty pictures of a white water beast emerged sporadically. Most people claimed it was an urban legend. But now everyone must face the truth. It is out there, in full glory. A lot is unknown about this creature. Is it a force of evil or a force of good? Maybe it just wants to be kept …
