This site shows a selection of my work as graphic designer. I am based in Rotterdam, and concentrate on projects mainly for clients in art and culture.
Apart from regular collaborations with other graphic designers (with Kummer & Herrman for Cornerstones, Witte de With's Annual Report 2010 and the Source Book series; with grafisches Büro for a catalogue for Vienna based artist Josef Trattner and the redesign of the identity of IMV), I am working on own projects.
I have recently completed a video installation for the Stadsschouwburg Utrecht. At the beginning of the year, I was commissioned by Witte de With to design the exhibition graphics and publicity materials for the exhibition The End of Money. The exhibition was accompanied by a digital publication.
My field of work includes a broad range of media: books and editions, visual identities, posters and interactive works, such as websites for Julia Grandegger or Tomás Saraceno. Together with Jana Steffen, I have worked on a poster proposal for the 11th edition of Frauenperspektiven, and earlier in 2010, I designed a poster invite for the young fashion label cloudsacrossheadlines announcing their show.
In March 2008 I moved to Utrecht (NL) where I was employed by design studio Kummer & Herrman. Working there for 2 years, my commissions included the graphic image of the exhibition The Return of Religion and Other Myths at BAK – basis voor actuele kunst in Utrecht, a series of interviews on Why Berlin? and the redesign of the identity of Rotterdam based Witte de With, Center for Contemporary Art.
For Witte de With, I made a large number of program and invitation flyers, a couple of Source books, the first edition of the Reflection series, the art publication JET and a publication for photographer Otto Snoek.
I have collaborated in the design of the website and a poster series for The Sochi Project, a cooperation between photographer Rob Hornstra and journalist Arnold van Bruggen. For Arnold van Bruggen, I also designed a poster for his documentary The Russian War which was first screened at IDFA Amsterdam. Alongside my involvement in cultural projects, I took on responsibility for the design and the realisation of the last ten issues of VROM.NL, the corporate magazine for VROM, Ministry of Housing, Spatial Planning and Environment.
On occasion of the 5th edition of Berliner Kunstsalon,
I worked for Burg Giebichenstein, University of Art and Design Halle, and earlier for werkleitz – centre for media art and for YEAYEA on the realisation of a Design Guide for Saxony-Anhalt. In 2008 I graduated from Burg Giebichenstein, University of Art and Design Halle with Pop-up Spaces, a book about interventions in public space, and Dazwischen Etwas Anderes, a compendium on interspaces.
Earlier projects have included collaborations i.a. with fashion designer Hedwig Heinrich for her collection Re.Member, various theatre posters with a focus on calligraphy, and the design of smaller publications (Hard-Boiled Wonderland for Franziska Bähring and Schussgegenschuss for the same-titled exhibition experiment co-initiated with a lovely bunch of people).
