Liqueur Buddies

In a year where hugging and having a drink together with your buddies wasn’t possible, I came up with Liqueur Buddies. A moment to celebrate the new year. I developed these friendly bottles as a new year gift, so that people could have a drink together with their buddy during the lockdown and curfew.

 

Just cut the label, share one of the bottles (keep 1,5 meter distance) with your buddies and you’re set up for an evening of joy. The Liqueur Buddies were available in 3 flavors: speculaas (ginger bread), amaretto and limoncello. You can recognize the different flavors in the patterns that are worn by the Liqueur Buddies.

Bedtime Monsters

During the day they’re beautiful and innocent still life paintings, but at night they come alive and transform into friendly little monsters! Bedtime Monsters are here to keep children safe at bedtime. The project plays with the given that mundane objects get a mysterious appearance in the dark, especially to the children. Hand screen printed with glow in the dark ink the Bedtime Monsters light up like a little night light to watch over the children.

Inspiration
In the dark a child’s fantasy takes hold of them: Moving shadows over the walls and creepy little sounds are the biggest enemy’s of a night’s rest. With Bedtime Monsters we created a little buddy to keep them safe for all that scares them at night. A night light that watches over them and provide them with a good night’s rest. 

During the day they’re innocent colourful still lives, with classical subjects as themes. The still lives come in three different designs: A vase with flowers (available now), a bowl of fruit (available for pre-sale) and one which will be announced later. Each of these illustrations transform into a friendly monster at night.

Educational
Everybody has its own view on things. Whether it’s art or our daily surroundings, from different perspectives we experience it in a different and often new way. Idris and Ivar took this quite literally: their design uses a day to night transformation to create a change in perspective. When a child has a Bedtime Monster in his or her room this is a first step at looking at things in a new light, or in our case: a new dark.

Limited Edition
The art prints are solely printed with bright colourful inks. Screen printed, signed and numbered by hand. The prints come in a limited edition of 200.

In collaboration with Idris van Heffen

Dutch summers are unpredictable and quite rainy from time to time. The Dutch love to complain about that fact. That’s why MUDSHIRT started silk- screen printing a T-shirt collection with local mud (which will survive the washing machine).

Reclame Ridders

ReclameRidders gives creative masterminds the possibility to share their vision on the advertising branch with the new generation. The goal is to challange young creatives to form their own vision.

What started as an alternative of a thesis grew to become an organisation which is organising events a couple times a year and writing opinion articles. I started ReclameRidders together with Martijn Lankveld and passed it over to a couple of young and eager students. Last year I did the design of the identity as well as the images which were used for the events.

Since the events are targeted on young talent, we used playmobil figures to illustrate our topics in a clean and graphical way.

A gay goodbye

Together with Cinerama and Martijn Lankveld, I organized another movie night. This time in honor of actor and professional joker Robin Williams. Not a mourning ceremony, but a celebration of his life. For this occasion we screened The Birdcage and a special guest, the founder of the official Robin Williams fanclub, reflected on Robin’s life and the story behind that characteristic smile of his. I was also responsible for the visual identy that was developed for the event. The portrait of Robin Williams is based on the two sides of the character he plays in the movie The Birdcage and resembles the two-sided life of the actor.
