The Common Grounds is Julia Boekholt’s challenge to get the world addicted to organic plant-based coffee. Right now The Common Grounds is a pop-up Coffee bar traveling from event to event. The Common Grounds asked me to create a visual identity for them that’s all about saving the world and get people excited for the products of The Common Grounds without being the “annoying vegan”. The result: A modern logo and a collection of catchy humoristic slogans.

Goofs is a new fashion brand by Utrecht/Montreal based Fashion Designer Jade Simard-Lemaire. Goofs creates sustainable clothing by making new creations out of second hand clothes. Surprising combinations and fresh new looks are the result. For Goofs, I have been responsible for the visual identity. The logo created for Goofs is all about goofiness, looks and variation. The eye can transform for every possible occasion since eyes can express anything.

Long Distance Love Store questions the way we shape relationships when we are not able to be together physically. Because of the possibility to share everything with your lover 24/7, apps like Whatsapp and Skype give you a feeling of intimacy. In the meanwhile more and more applications are being designed to create intimacy between couples who are not physically together. But is this really working? Are you really in a relationship with your lover or are you maybe in a relationship with your phone? Do you, in the end, still recognize him or her?


See the entire project and watch video's of all the apps at:

vlogtelingen
Vlogtelingen started as a youtube channel with content made with and about refugees in the Netherlands, and was later commissioned by the dutch talkshow “De Nieuwe Maan”. The videos are aimed at offering an individual and more enjoyable perspective on the subject of refugees. In the main series of Vlogtelingen, Gelukzoekers (fortune seekers), Jan Waatze spends the day with a refugee in search of happiness during a traditional Dutch activity. Vlogtelingen was made in collaboration with Martijn de Vliegher.

" Un-Known is a coloring book about what we do not know about North Korea. North Korea is the most closed country in the world and it has been a mystery for years what really happens behind it's borders. The stories we hear are usually negative, but is this the truth? Is it really all bad? Are there perhaps very nice things going on? Or is it maybe even worse than we thought. In Un-Known the choice is yours. The book only tells you what we know, all that’s left is blank and it is up to you to color.

There are a lot of designer with opinions who like to make work about their opinions. But shouldn't a designer ask him/herself the question: "ok, and now"(ok, en nu?) every now and then

One of the biggest fears of societies is losing their own culture. Other cultures are seen as a big threat and people are fighting (sometimes even literally) to save theirs. To make it a little easier for those people, Culture Scratch was created, a series of lottery tickets that determine your future culture.
