I LOVE YOUR WORK-poster on A’dam-E.V.A.

Monday, March 14th, 2011

Always nice to see your own work pop up unexpectedly like this old I LOVE YOUR WORK poster I created with the design team at Mannschaft and artist Jan Rothuizen for management institute ‘de Baak’. It just popped up in the decor of this new TV series about our beloved city Amsterdam called A’dam – E.V.A. (Amsterdam and all the others). Nice to see people care to leave it up on the wall for so long!

This week: launching ROOD & voordekunst.nl

Tuesday, November 2nd, 2010

This week two major projects I worked on over the summer will see the light. First on wednesday the 3rd of November there’s the official launch of ROOD magazine , a one time publication to go with the ROOD exhibition in the Royal Tropical Institute’s Tropenmuseum in Amsterdam. It was a huge job and a great pleasure to put this magazine together as the editor-in-chief (all the way to final editing of course), working closely with the Tropenmuseum’s curators, the amazing art directors and designers at Studio Roosje Klap and all those great contributors. The ROOD exhibition, a huge exposé about the colour RED throughout cultures and times, designed by Maarten Spruyt and Tsur Reshef will open this Thursday the 4th. Needless to say, you MUST go and see it.

Secondly, on Thursday the 4rth of November, before ROOD opens with a gala, I will join the official launch gathering for voordekunst.nl, an online crowdfunding platform for the Dutch arts, initiated by Amsterdams Fonds Voor De Kunst. I did the necessary copywriting for the site and its first campaign, working together smoothly as ever with my good designer-friends at Mannschaft.

Shows do go on like they say so there will be no putting up of painful party feet come Friday. Au contraire. I will be on the first train to The Hague where I will be in chambers with the jury for the Dutch Fashion Awards 2010. Friday night November 5th the Dutch Fashion Foundation and their international power-jury will herald a new Dutch Fashion talent with the big prize by Mercedes-Benz and there are three more awards to be handed out, so untill we can raise the cocktail glasses, we’ll be guessing: after Klavers Van Engelen in 2007, Monique van Heist in 2008, Sjaak Hullekes in 2009… who is the fairest of them all in 2010? Ok, me and a handful of other backstage ants will know a couple of hours earlier but our phones will be off!

And the big winner was Iris van Herpen, taking home 3 Ted Noten designed awards
