In what turned out to be one of the most satisfying projects I’ve worked on last year, I was asked to design a couple of posters for the Diabetes Fonds (an organisation that spreads awareness and funds research towards the treatment of diabetes).
Liger is a small company that puts out a high quality t-shirts in limited editions. All with solid illustrated designs.
Each ‘wave’ of t-shirts has designs by 6 new illustrators and is each based on a different theme. I was asked to participate in the 4th Wave which is being released today. The theme was “Old School Gaming” and this is how my entry came about…
As you work on different projects through out the year, there’s always a lot of work in the form of proposals and sketches that never gets to see the light of day. So I’ve decided to periodically go through the waste paper bin to see if I can find anything that deserves a moment in the spotlight before it’s going to get hauled off to be shredded, pulped and recycled.
Today a bunch of lettering.
In september 2013 I got an email from Dario Nucci, the man behind Alpha Studio, telling me he was going to need some design and illustration work. Dario has been taking care of the creative direction for quite some Omega campaigns over the last few years and with the Sochi Winter Olympics coming up, he was put in charge of the accompanying print campaign.
Yesterday finally saw the release of a project I had been working on for quite some time last year. Commissioned by Wolff Olins I created a series of nine fiery foxes as part of the total branding concept for Mozzila’s new Firefox OS for mobile devices. Very proud to see these guys finally roam free.
It’s not very often one comes across companies that value the importance of their internal communication as much as they do their external one. Usually when organizations even understand its importance, they don’t want to spend any real money on motivating, informing or educating their employees about their plans and strategies.
This coming March the conference on type design and technology called Robothon will once again be held in The Hague, The Netherlands and as ever it’s being organized by Erik van Blokland and Paul van der Laan.
Although they are both gifted graphic designers themselves, they thought it was a good idea (don’t ask me why) to let me design the logo for this year’s conference.
