De VouwkrantOBA & ARTHOOD
Together with creatives, artists and researchers we created this folding newspaper about mental health and loneliness. We investigated the importance of creativity and empathy in issues surrounding mental health. By connecting makers, extended platforms and researchers we came up with the following collective question: “How can we as creatives and artists contribute to improving mental wellbeing?” Arthood Strives to make mental health negotiable in a creative and accessible way. We hope to inspire makers to use their creativity for the well-being of the city.
Arthood is a collective of women who reflect on today’s society. We want to stimulate the mind and foster dialogue around themes such as mental health, feminism, sexuality, identity and the environment. We do this by creating visual art, editorials, events and talks. We are creating awareness to make a change.
Experience ToolAmsterdam University of Applied Science
Commissioned by the Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences, we have developed a tool that encourages design thinking. The intent of this tool is to inspire players to create experiences, and provide them with relevant information to do so in (mainly) physical spaces. The tool is built around elements that influence spatial experience. Based on various experiments, case studies and analysis of research in scientific databases, the creators of this tool have identified four main elements, which organizations and individuals can focus on when creating a spatial experience for their visitors. I was responsible for the concept and the graphic design of this tool.
As a style-editor I was responsible for the editorial design. Also I was responsible for the critical concept of this second edition as an assistent-editor. I managed interviews and I wrote some articles. GRAMMIE magazine is a Dutch Instagram-marketing Magazine. This second edition focusses on the positive & negative aspects of the platform ‘Instagram’. Because in a time where we seem to be ‘on’ 24/7 a day it’s very hard to switch that button back to ‘off’.

The ConfessionalStudio Frictie
In the current shifting creative industry, social relevance in projects and working with other people is more than ever needed and playing an important role. We got to discover Social Design, working with ‘refugees’, design studios and the integration of social connections within the making process. We found out that we were playing a part of the problem we stumbled upon. Through being honest towards ourselves and the people we were working with, we got something new in return; Being vulnerable and honest er creating connection and trust.

I am not what I wearManifesto Graduation Project
This Manifesto is about Inner Sustainability. Fashion is so much more than the fabric our bodies wear. Fashion is culture, identity and social as well. In today's shifting fashion industry, social relevance is of importance, due to an overload of products, fabrics, clothing and options can result in an identity crisis. Our inner self is our identity but consuming and the way we look is creating our status at the moment. The philosophy of 'inner-fashion' is caught in a manifesto where consumers become aware of their buying behaviour. In addition, discussing themes such as identity, cultivation, media and branding. Consumers are challenged to join an inner-revolution by making their statements about the current fashion landscape. By printing these statements on T-shirts, consumers can stand for their personal vision and be part of a revolution.
Twisted Pink Sweater
This Pink Twisted sweater, is a form of artful playfulness. A sweater forced out of its natural or proper shape that is wearable in multiple ways. With the aim to not only stimulate the mind, but also create societal awareness of social constructions, systems, concepts, rules and standards. Conclusively reminding society to create it’s own rules and explore all functionalities that trigger the mind.
