    I started the website for myself but please check it out, because I feel pretty happy about making this work. You can find sketches, small ideas and finished stuff. It's a bit of a process.

    Brancussi, Rosso and Man Ray - Framing Sculpture
    For the exhibition Framing Sculpture at Boijmans Van Beuningen Lotte Meijer created Studio Brancusi, Studio Rosso and Studio Man Ray.
    In these three multimedia spaces visitors can feel a bit like the artists. You can interact with the (reproductions of) sculptures, make photographs, cut and color like Rosso by using the app. Or you can make rayographs on photo-luminescent sheets using different objects to create your own compositions (You can see me make one in the photo top right :)). 
    I designed all the educational panels for the Studios and the app for Studio Rosso.

    You can visit the exhibition and the multimedia spaces untill the 25th of May.

    Got married
    Remco and I got married in a beautiful industrial building on the Westergasterrein. Because it was completely empty we had the chance to make the place and the day totally our own, with a lot of help from our friends. And the day was amazing!

    When two designers get married there's gonna be some styling and designing involved. Above you see the wedding invitation we made together.

    Hand Made in Boijmans Van Beuningen
    This coming spring Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen is taking crafts as its principal thema. An exhibition with more than 500 objects presents the most exceptional examples of artistic crafts. There is also a complementary programme of films and documentaries, markets and a whole variety of workshops.
    Together with Thonik I designed a newspaper about Hand Made, centred around 7 popular cliches that exist about the concept of crafts.
    It was issued with the Dutch national newspaper NRC Handelsblad, March 7 and is also available now at the museum.

    Sketches for posters School of the Arts Rotterdam
    Together with Andrea Ronhaar I just finished a couple of posters for the Open Days of Codarts. It's a school of arts for dance, music and circus-arts. We also made the poster for the Havo/VWO (highschool) for dance and arts. Inspired by the two logos we made a special letterfont for both schools. Above some sketches for Codarts - with a stripy horizontal and vertical type. The highschool type is also stripy, but diagonal. Soon I will show the end results fresh from the printer.

    My work in High Touch
    The project Papercuts I did together with Floortje Bouwkamp (by the name Floortje/Fluitsma) is featured in a recently released book by Gestalten. High Touch, about tactile design and visual explorations shows a lot of handwork made with different materials. You never know what kind of book your work is going to be in, but I really enjoyed this one. It's full of amazing work I wish I had made myself! Order or browse the book here.

    Art Biennial Manifesta 9
    This years Manifesta takes place until September 30, 2012 at the impressive site of the former Waterschei mine in Genk, Limburg, Belgium. I can very much recommend going there. Besides the selection of contemporary and historical art the site itself is worth a visit.
    I designed the general guide for the exhibition and made a several page supplement for the Dutch national newspaper NRC Handelsblad, June 14. The great identity of Manifesta 9 is made by Thonik.

    Back at work
    The trip was amazing. I have to show some pictures. Number 1:  big landscapes. Number 2:  our roadtripteam, consisting of Simon (the lovely young frenchman), Zigmunds (our sketchy latvian guy) and Remco (my rocky mountain) and me. Number 3: speed up, rove around, slow down, drive on (also the names of Simon's playlists:). By the way, being four designers on the road we were very happy to get the reasonably cool graphic campervan at the rentalplace, and not the airbrushed one with planets and mountains.

    Book presentation
    The book 'Op de huid' presents a survey of the carefully gathered art collection of the Sint Lucas Andreas Hospital in Amsterdam. It was a great project to work on. I did a lot of the photos in the book myself, next to the talented photographer Thijs de Lange. The texts about the artworks are written by the very original Basje Boer. I'm proud of the outcome, and last week it felt like a real celebration when the book was presented.
