As a graphic designer I am mostly interested in social and political situations worldwide. I combine journalism, speculative elements and a critical perspective to question how a particular process could have been handled differently. Hereby I search for a way to confront the public to think in a different way about the situation. This speculative vision I describe, often suggest that the ordinary might not be so simple, that nothing is what it seems.. To me, graphic design is all about creating tranquility, so the public can deal with the content. I cherish the details. They allow the public to be sucked into the story, because the design is at the service of the message, which I want to convey as clearly as possible. Graphic design to me is an active force in engaging in a discussion with it’s public. I hope it will make people think, and encourage them to question current situations.
I studied at ArtEZ Institute of the Arts Arnhem and my work received, among others, the nomination of ‘Arnhemse Nieuwe’ by Ontwerp Platform Arnhem (O.P.A) and ‘The Best Dutch Book Design 2017' by Stichting De Best Verzorgde Boeken.
