This past spring I made the first poster for 2 Worlds, 1 Sound—a musical event consisting of several gigs highlighting the seven largest non-Western immigrant groups in Amsterdam, organised by Radio TNP. For this first event, focusing on Indonesia, they invited Derozan and Krishna Sutedja to collaborate on a hybrid performance of both acoustic and electronic music. Soon more gigs will follow, stay tuned!
A successive gig, focusing on Marocco, with Hamza Amrani & Inezgane Records—guiding us from North to South through a wide range of local music—combining the Ud with electronic sounds in a complementary way.

*rawcooked is a periodical culinary magazine that investigates one specific local and seasonal product in each edition—from how it is farmed in Dutch soil, to how it is harvested, sold, and plated. The magazine portrays this topic through art, writing, and recipes: essays on consumption and perception; everyday recipes; articles on preservation; recommendations, tips, and tricks; poems inspired by it and art comprised of it; interviews with chefs; and sharing the voices of the farmers who make it all possible.

Selected 2019Selected is an exhibition, curated by Public Rietveld, where each year nine graduates get the opportunity to show their graduation work outside of the academy.
In 2019, I was asked to do the graphic design of the publication, the online publicity, and the information inside the exhibition space. That year the exhibition took place at Looiersgracht 60.

A collection of six booklets, responding to Sketchbook by Emilie Ding, as a result of an assignment to redesign one of The Most Beautiful Swiss Books from 2017, given by Julia Born during the Rietveld Zürich 6-weeks residency.
In her book, Emilie Ding takes images of modernist architecture and uses them to create her own visual narrative through composition. This series of booklets documents and treats printed matter in a similar way as she treats architecture in her book; by capturing details, recontextualising, zooming in, cropping and moving the content around to create a new narrative.
Each booklet consists of either text or image excerpts from different sources found in the city: the Tages-Anzeiger—a Zürich newspaper—from Tuesday 25.09.18.; a BMW-manual from 2005; and the Oasis fan-magazine uncut presents: Oasis from 2002.

“Nation-building concerns the ‘soft’ aspects of state consolidation such as the development of a common national identity among the inhabitants through symbols, propaganda, history writing, and the cultivation and ‘invention’ of traditions and national customs.”

This is a brief history of the Phoenician alphabet and an introduction to its subsequent alphabets. The first step of the assignment was to make a keynote presentation for the optional subject, the second was to translate the presentation into a publication.
A quick assignment, by Floor Koomen and Paul Kooiker, to make an A5 zine with black and white images on one subject. I’ve juxtaposed a collection of paintings that depict writing and reading.
A poster I’ve made for an assignment from Elizabeth Klement: each person in class got assigned a different building to make a poster for. I was happy to get De Flesseman on the Nieuwmarkt because I noticed it’s pretty, yellow facade each time I passed by.
