Promotional campaign and program
A POSTER PERFORMANCE
Promotion of the Rietveld's participation in Holland Festival, a yearly performance festival in Amsterdam, how better to do that than through a performance? Emma Olanders and I chose to focus on the performative act by a live act of posting posters. Hanging a poster became a performance.
Taking departure in the simple notion of the act of posting we created a dialogue in posters performed live at the Stadsschouwburg and the Frascati Theater. Each poster dealt with different aspects of the specific evening, responding to the atmosphere and the performance that was to be shown that night. Focusing on the fact that performance is a medium specific to when and where it takes place.
We used the photographs taken during these promotional performances in the design of the programs, one image per program for each of the Rietveld's evenings at Theater Frascati. Enhancing the autonomy of the act and the confusion between graphic design and life – or art.
In collaboration with Emma Olanders.

ALL OUR FIRES COLLECTED
For my graduation project I created a display of Designers ready for society. In the form of an informative catalogue covering the expertise of every member of our class. I based my research into descriptive and assertive language on the words used in professional and commercial contexts such as galleries and art- and design magazines. I looked for patterns in writing and ended up building a library of styles, dialects, figures of speech and metaphors, as well as precise words.
In the act of describing someone in superlatives I try to lay bare structures of language, to visualize the absurd mannerism in which this category of words are used. To criticize how this language forges professionals into products.
The catalogue is a pocket-size catalogue and guide for the graduation exhibition which was inspired by the Memphis Movement. The lilac gradient renders each page an individual character. Offset printed at the Rietveld, in an edition of 1000 copies, 2012
