Everpress T-shirt


Illustrator Maxim de Gilder and I collaborated in making this tee for the collaboration collection from Everpress. They asked to design something for the theme ‘connection’.

“In this design we showed a nostalgic way of making contact. We created a storyline, in which the can-phone rings on the front of the shirt and where the phone is being answered on the back. This way, connection gets separate from the digital interpretation and takes you back to the fun moments how we made connection as kids.”

This book is for those who struggle with the pressure of creating original work in a world where everything has already been done before. I was placed in this situation as well and therefore tried tackling this during my graduation. Originally Produced, will take you on a journey of my process in finding solutions to this discouraging situation.

This book bundles my case study towards the design possibilities of the typical Dutch fototaart. Why the fototaart you think? As it is my ultimate cliche object. Cliches are the pinnacle of the unoriginal and if I can prove you, that it’s even possible to create a few hundred design experiments using a cliche object, I might persuade you to give it a try as well. Prior to all approaches are methodologies written that you can apply to your own creative process. These methodologies are focused on helping you to outgrow the situation.

Originally Produced stimulates creative people to follow their intuition during their making process. The more personal you make it, the more original it eventually will be.


Last July I graduated form the Willem de Kooning Academie in Rotterdam. Due to COVID the graduation show has been postponed.

Animation by Studio Tomotion


Identity Chardonnay


In close collaboration with filmmaker Nando Dullaart, illustrator Maxim de Gilder and animator Thomas de Gilder did we work on the identity, short animations and capsule collection for Notion's snowboard film Chardonnay. I was responsible for the identity and letter design.

Throughout the film, you'll follow four street snowboarders traveling across Europe. Along with the footage, short animated stories tell undocumented moments in an exaggerated and humorous way.

Interview booklet


My interview with Pieter van Vos, co-owner of creative firm 75B, transformed into a conversation as soon as we started. I learned a lot about the personality of my former internship 75B and Pieter himself. That’s why it earned to be archived into these colourful booklets, so I can read it again now and then.
