Cover and Booklet for De Parade
Since I made this work for a school assignment it wasn't really made for De Parade, but I very much enjoyed the design work nonetheless. De Parade is one of Holland's greatest festivals, a festival were a large group of people (actors, musicians, dancers and people with other sorts of talents) travel through Holland's four large cities: Rotterdam, Den Haag, Utrecht and Amsterdam. In each city a large range of plays are performed in tents and huts that are put down on a big area, where people gather and have fun.
I made an A2 poster which I also used for the cover of the booklet, where you can read the highlights of the plays and other information about the festival. The theme and concept was "Go Back To Your Childhood" and the slogan I used was "In Ieder Mens Schuilt Een Kind" (In Every Person There Is A Child). The booklet was a folded A4, making it rather a high vertical booklet which you can put in your back pocket easily.
Brochure for Hotel St Laurans
Brochure for a French hotel, commissioned by Artbox. This was a lot of fun to make since I love making these kind of old style brochures. I have tried to make the design warm and cozy, achieving this with warm yellow and orange tones and some texture to make the paper look a little old.
Journal of a Compass
This was a project for school. The assignment was to make a small book about a thing that interests you. I chose a compass as my subject and called my book "Dagboek van een Kompas", which means "Journal of a Compass" in Dutch. I wrote the text myself, and designed all of the pages and the cover in Photoshop using stock material like the old worldmaps and pictures, scanned in pictures of my passport, vacation cards from distant lands and wrinkled paper.
Cover - Voor niets gaat de zon op
Cover for a school report about business models around the concept "free". The report is about how big companies like Google and Facebook can make money by charging nothing. As a graphic designer, every report that leaves my hands has to look good, so I made this cover with my own photography and the watercolor style I'm a big fan of.
MARI ad Artbox
Concept ad for Artbox which was to be placed in a magazine about carnaval. In the end another ad was used.
Invitation for Artbox party. In the end another design based on this concept was used.
Website for Artbox > centre for creation. The website can be viewed at www.artbox.nl.
Website for sportmanagement company YBBP. This was a freelance job which I did with a friend of mine. We both worked on the design and the development and it was really fun to do. The company wanted to start up their website with an intro movie which you can see by going to www.ybbp.nl. After the movie or by skipping it, you enter the website, which is designed to have a dynamic background which is a screenshot from the intro movie, which says a lot about the company and their idea's.
It was a real developer's challenge to get the background to be dynamic and to always have the content of the website in the middle, both horizontally and vertically, with only the use of HTML, CSS and PHP.
We also made a custom CMS in PHP for the company so they would be able to manage their content themselves.
