4 selfportraits

I fooled around with an app called Bellus3d. It gives you the possibility to make a 3d scan of your head with an iPhone x. The scan can be imported in several 3d programs, which I promptly did. So I made several self portraits. One of them looks painted, which I am really proud of. Most of the time I work with filters so that it looks like it is painted. This is the first time I used several brushes on the image in Photoshop to get that oilpainty look. …

Portrait of Joris

This number 3 in my series of portraits that I am making. This is a portrait of my good friend Joris. He is a life coach who as you can see in the portrait loves to surf. My previous portraits were more realistic. In the sense that my father and Jorrit are more or less possible in real life. With Joris I wanted it to be more surreal. The main theme of his portrait is balance. Can you figure out in how many ways I have a portrayed that theme?

Portrait of my dad

This is my 2nd portrait that I made. This one was really hard to make. Mainly because it is a portrait of my dad. When I do a portrait I want the one who is being portrayed be pleased with what I made. But if they are not pleased, I am not overly disappointed, things like style and taste differ. But with my dad it is a whole different ball game. Just felt like a kid again, who presents his drawing to his parents. Relationships with your parents can be …

Portrait of Jorrit

This is a portrait of my good friend Jorrit. Jorrit is a photographer and someone who is an all-round Handyman. This is the first one in a series of portraits I am making. When handing over his portrait I interviewed him. He was really touched by the way I portrayed him and as an artist that is the reaction you hope for. In my work process I first took several pictures of him, then I recreated him in 3d. He thoroughly enjoyed the photo shoot, especially the hair cap. But …

Klimaatgesprekken Flyer and Banner

For the Dutch Branch of Carbon Conversations (Klimaatgesprekken) I designed a banner and a flyer. The idea is to show real people who do their best to lower their carbon impact. Different examples are presented, like driving an electric vehicle or going on a holiday locally.  The pictures are presented like small puzzle pieces. We are all small pieces in the puzzle of lowering our climate impact. On the flyer there is a call to action ‘Discover the workshops’.

RIJK Sustainable Public Procurement Poster

I also designed a poster that was inserted in the Rijk magazine. This poster represents the flow of sustainable public procurement. Flowcharts are of course a simplified representation of the procedures/steps people within an organisation have to take. The simplification always leads to discussion. How can you simplify complex things? In this case the flowchart with the blue background represents the organisational or strategic flow of sustainable public procurement. The flowchart with the green background represents the tactical/operational flow of sustainable public procurement. Then there are the different themes where …

For Stichting RIJK I developed and designed the concept of this Corporate Magazine. Stichting RIJK is a purchase organisation for several municipalities in the Netherlands.

The magazine is eco-printed certificatied which means it is printed in the most …

This is my application for the Amsterdam Light Festival 2018. This year I was not selected to go through the second round. The theme for 2018 is ‘The Medium is the Message. Below you can read the description of my light installation called ‘Don’t Walk’. Do you dare to walk through or will you wait and obey? In the middle of the walkway two classic pedestrian traffic lights are erected. The crosswalk is visualized by red lights on the floor.  There is no traffic that needs to be regulated. The …

Brand Style Guide ‘Klimaatgesprekken’

For the Dutch Carbon Conversations I made this Brand Style Guide. I already did some work for them but their branding was kind of all over the place. This made it harder for me to work for them. So I took the initiative to make a brand guide for them. A brand guide consists of at least six elements: The Story, The Logo, The Colours, Typography,  Images and tone of voice. We discussed all these items and made a comprehensive Brand Style Guide which you can download and read by …

Disneyland Ride Competition: The Soap Box Race

My son is an avid Donald Duck Magazine reader. It is one of the most popular magazines in The Netherlands, and still going strong after 65 years.

You had to come up with a ride for Disneryland Paris. My son Job came with the idea of a soapbox race. We discussed if he should …
