PORTFOLIO

SEPTEMBER 2020 / GRAPHIC DESIGN

Welcome to the City of Arnhem, home to the country’s most overly extensive metro transit network. We ran out of space to build railway tracks on the surface, so we decided to just start digging.

SEPTEMBER 2020 / GRAPHIC DESIGN

Welcome to the City of Zwolle, home to the country’s most overly extensive metro transit network. We ran out of space to build railway tracks on the surface, so we decided to just start digging.

SEPTEMBER 2020 / GRAPHIC DESIGN

Welcome to the City of Leeuwarden, home to the country’s most overly extensive metro transit network. A decent smooth-flowing ring road might be a bridge too far, but at least you don’t have to stagger home from Goal Alley anymore.

AUGUST 2020 / GRAPHIC DESIGN

Welcome to the City of Utrecht, home to the country’s most overly extensive metro transit network. We weren’t able to make the trains run on time, so we decided to just throw our hands up and dig in.

JULY 2020 / GRAPHIC DESIGN

Welcome to the City of Groningen, home to the country’s most overly extensive metro transit network. Although the official slogan maintains that ‘there’s nothing above Groningen’, nowhere does it say you’re not allowed to go underneath.

A continent in stereotypes, viewed through the eyes of the average Dutchmen. From bike-stealing Germans to our love/hate relationship with the French to lazy Poles taking our jobs.

This 2014 map went viral almost overnight. No map has been more insightful in the Dutch national psyche while managing to piss off every single region and city.

NOVEMBER 2017 / GRAPHIC DESIGN

Wat stelt die Haagse baantjescarroussel nou helemaal voor? Ik was benieuwd naar de functies die onze bewindvoerders de afgelopen decennia hebben vervuld na hun ministerschap…

APRIL 2016 / GRAPHIC DESIGN

Amsterdam, dam aan de Amstel. Hoe makkelijk de oorsprong van een plaatsnaam kan zijn. Maar waar komt de naam Utrecht vandaan? Of Leeuwarden? Of Schiermonnikoog?
