Internship report De Monsterkamer ~ publication ~ 2020

In 2019 I did my internship at De Monsterkamer (Sample Room) in Amsterdam, a physical & digital platform that gives advice to anyone who wants to produce something in print. Naturally, for my physical internship report I used different papers, that I ordered through the database of De Monsterkamer

Janssen Rehabilitation Medicine and Consultancy ~ web ~ 2019

Dr. Janssen treats people with Ehlers-Danlos syndromes (a group of genetic connective tissue disorders). These people often identify themselves as zebras.

I created a new visual identity and website for Dr. Janssen’s new rehabilitation practice, including a logo consisting of Zebra's hoof wearing an ankle-foot orthosis.

anew magazine KABK Industrial Design ~ publication ~ 2019

With sustainability, readability, a diverse audience and a small budget in mind, Mahtab Zamanifar and I created the second issue of the anew, a magazine publication of the Master Industrial Design at the Royal Academy of Art, The Hague (KABK).

The final design is bright, colorful, playful and most importantly produced with only leftover paper from Lenoirschuring’s printer (so no new paper was harmed in the making of this magazine).

The graduates selection is designed as a separate booklet, so it can be taken out by visitors of the graduation show.

Printed at Lenoirschuring

Python, generative letters ~ code + poster ~ 2018

Mijn moeder zei altijd ~ poster ~ 2018

Mijn moeder zei vroeger altijd dat ik een laatbloeier was. Hoezo, vroeg ik dan. Gewoon, antwoordde ze. / My mom always said that I was a late bloomer. Why would I ask? Just because she would answer.

This weird and closed conversation between a daughter and a mother comes from Maartje Laterveer’s book ‘Vrouwen en Seks’ (Women and Sex). I created an object by hand from this (first) sentence . Then I took a photograph of my object which I turned into an A2 poster.

The ornamental devine ~ mural + video ~ 2017

After a wonderful roundtrip in Iran, me and my fellow students presented a guilt-free renaissance in which tendrils creep, petals unfurl and geometric patterns abound. We honored our heroes in this immersive exploration of the grid.

My piece of the wall is dedicated to Kathleen Hannah, one of the co-founders of Riot grrrl, a punk and feminist movement from the 90s.

10 books exhibition ~ expo ~ 2017

This project was inspired by the Best Dutch Book Designs exhibition. In teams of four we made a selection of 10 books to create an exhibition that would show off these books.

We chose the overlapping concept of space (space in the grid, the topic of space, condensed space, online and offline space, etc.) to showcase our selection with an exhibition in space.

#metoo in linoprint ~ image ~ 2017

Although I am very happy about companies and media outlets addressing social issues related to ‘real women’, ‘real beauty’ and ‘being honest’, I also feel there should be a difference between breaking taboos like menstruation, cellulite and curves and using (or misusing) these taboos to sell your product, which inspired me to create these linocut prints on japanese paper.

1968 The Homefront ~ publication + essay ~ 2017

The Homefront is an essay on equality and its representation in 1968. Our main sources were Martha Rosler’s series ‘House Beautiful: Bringing the War Home’, Gui Debord’s ‘The Society of spectacle’, Marshall Mcluhan’s ‘The Medium is the massage’ and Susan Sontag’s ‘Image world’. All of which are included in the design of our publication.

This publication is part of a series of 5.

Next to this essay we also designed the three key sources that we read before writing the Essay. This entire book is part of a series of five books.

Collaboration with: Selina Landis, Emily Anderson and Emma Benozzi

International week of the deaf ~ campaign ~ 2016

During the International Week of the Deaf (IWD), several professionals visit middle schools to tell the children about what it is like to be deaf.

To explain to middle schoolers some basic rules on how to communicate with deaf people, I created several pieces of communication displaying easy tips on how to communicate with a hearing impaired person.

The Royal Opera House ~ campaign ~ 2016

A reason why younger people don’t visit the opera is because they think it is too expensive. Even though it’s not!

So, in order to make visiting the opera more attractive, I created these market-themed campaign images, as the market is immediately associated with cheap, but good products.
