Remit: Concept, identity, interior design, installation, motion design
ID:gender.net was a program of International Film Festival Rotterdam 2016. Identity and gender are the central topics of this project. The goal was to visualize the insight given into the blurred boundaries between man and woman. The shades of a gradient were introduced as a metaphor for the different sexualities while the break in the gradients shows off the mistakenly drawn line between genders. The line moves and disappears within different animated applications. Photography: Jande Groen
Remit: Customized type, layout & typesetting
Glamcult is an Amsterdam-based independent magazine focusing on fashion, music, art and youth culture. It’s distributed throughout nine countries and can be found in clubs, galleries, clothing stores, universities and cafés. Every issue has a theme on which topics, photography and layout is based on. I worked on three issues, on different customized designs for headers and table of contents. Creating various layouts in an existing raster, setting the text as well as the micro typography was under my area of responsibility.
Culture and Identity
My remit: Concept, poster, logo and book design, realization of the live stream, concept of the play/direction, exhibition concept
This experimental concept for cultural design seeks a more non-commercial base. For the example of use, the Gärtnerplatztheater in Munich was chosen. The posters and the logo are variable and inspired by the structure of the new building placed directly on the Gärtnerplatz. The building is supposed to be used for experimental theater and as an open stage. It consists of hydraulically operable rings, which allow an ongoingly changeable look. The mediameshes installed between the rings, allow to display a scenery as well as a broadcast of performances in the main building. Besides that not only a live stream is intended but performances with a interactively alterable story. This idea was realized/tested with a short self-written play that was performed at a vernissage.
My remit: Analysis and Bookdesign of Book 1 and 3.
This work has been selected by the TDC to receive the Certificate of Typographic Excellence and a TDC 59 Student Award. It consists of three volumes and a psychogram and the main focus lies on the analysis of the font's individual characters. The series examines the origins as well as the broader historical background of the Bauer Bodoni font and illustrates its modern applications. Inspired by Bodoni's careful selection of paper and printing ink, the work was printed on colored paper. It was also influenced by Bodoni's love for the use of full justification.
Remit: Conception, Copywriting, Design and Layout.
A diary about my internship in New York that recaptures my experiences as life-like as possible. Due to the fact that my experiences were so diverse, numerous and not just restricted to the internship, this book has a extensive personal touch. The layout fits to the mostly stream of consciousness-like style of writing and tries not only to reflect experiences but also the spirited New York design world.
Remit: Concept and Design of Various Subpages
The redesign of the website for KidO, a manufacture and distributer of quality toys, including a suitable mobile version, was created with and for Studio Lin. The challenge was it to create an exciting variation in the vast number of pages that keeps the user interested, without appearing random.
Remit: Layout and Crafting
This is the annual calendar of Studio Lin in cooperation with Linco Printing for the year 2014. The crucial points are the weekends which are punched out and show a beautiful pantone blue that is printed on the inside of the Japanese bound calendar pages. All 40 calendars are hand-crafted.
Remit: Organisation, Content Managment and Layout.
The design of the bilingual catalog for the Japanese design store is based on the established identity of Minke and was made with and for Studio Lin. The main eye catcher are the colored stripes on the edges of the pages, which lead, simultaneously, to a colored body of the book. A very difficult part was the arrangement of the content. In the catalogue every designer has a page/spread before the products appear and every product has its own page/spread. At the very end of the catalogue there is an index sorted by product category.
Remit: Conception and Animation
Visualization of a beating heart that bursts apart into million particles circling around and dancing along the beat of Tricky's “Hey Love”. It's an animation of instanced particles dancing to a beat by using different fields in Autodesk Maya. The final cut was made in Premier.
