There are things that you don't always want to speak out loud, but you somehow feel the need to say it. Back in the early days of the 17th century, it was quite common for painters/artists to 'hide' messages in their artworks. Every flower had and still has its own symbolic value, we just don't really use that secret code anymore.
I created a new formula by connecting the symbolic values of the flowers to personality traits of people. Like that you can always compose the perfect bouquet for that person you want to give the flowers to. Just fill out the Personality Checklist. Even if they just have negative traits (which is hard to imagine), I can arrange a beautiful bouquet according to the formula!
Carefully I arranged bouquets that carry a special message, based on the symbolic values of each flower. Some are nice, some are not so nice ;-)
1. I am proud of you
2. I am still a virgin
3. I want to get to know you
4. I hate you
I am currently designing a website and logo for an organic farm in California. Soon more to come, but here a little preview!
I love to do experiments! These are graphics I created after an experiment with nail polish on paper. With a little editing in photoshop I created these beautiful stains. I wouldn't mind to have a stain like that on my t-shirt ;-)
Obataimu is a fashion boutique in Bombay, India. Since they were closed for the season to work on their new stunning collection of garments, they needed a poster to keep their visitors patient, and to let them know that they will be back for the upcoming season. I designed the poster for the opening. And since it's a festive occasion where supposedly, some alcohol will flow, I designed some coasters too!
A selection of the letters I made for 36 Days of Type. This is an online challenge on Instagram where anyone can participate freely. I find it a lot of fun to do because it kind of provokes you to make a letter or number of the alphabet each day and come up with something new.
Sieger Schotanus had asked me to design his new business cards. He wanted his new cards to be more contemporary and stylish.
I designed an identity for a friend who started to grow her own flowers on an urban field in the city of Utrecht, the Netherlands. Initially she only wanted a logo and a business card, but I felt so free to exploit the nice ingredients out of the identity with some other objects, such as paper bags, a tote bag and jars of honey.
For the Obataimu fashion boutique in Bombay, India I created this animated invitation. Last Grabs, to score the last items from the store before closing for the upcoming season.
This book is about the use of ceramic systems in architecture and explains in different projects and example cases how these techniques were applied.
The cover is finished off with a shiny, 'pearlish' paper. The orange typography is meant to imitate the actual base element of ceramics: terracotta. Design for publishing house Birkhäuser, together with Proxi.
Basically I felt like designing a wine label, because I wanted to see how it would work out. Now I want to make a lot more and I want to dive into the world of packaging!
Carl Suchy is a reestablished watch brand from Austria. It started all in 1822, Carl Suchy was the watch maker for Emperor Franz Joseph I. The brand has had great success for about more than a century but has been 'forgotten' for some years. Until it was reestablished again in 2015. I was amongst other things responsible for the website. In cooperation with Proxi.
VPUR is Vera Purtscher from Vorarlberg, Austria. Vera designs various things. Amongst other things she designes cutlery, is an architect, designs crockery and glass.
Kobalto is Elsa Sanchez. Elsa works as set/shop-window designer and uses all kinds of objects in her designs, so logically we decided to use all kinds of different objects on her cards too to express the variety in her work. The cards are printed with white ink which gives it an extra rich contrast! In cooperation with Proxi.
