De Geuzen, a Foundation for Multi-visual research, is been active in art and social media for 14 years. To celebrate the vibrant variety of their feminist oriented work, a retrospective opens at Stuk Art Centre in Leuven, Belgium. Since Renee’ Turner is 1/3 of De Geuzen and my beloved companion, I was happy to contribute to their low-fi catalogue by making a line drawing of every single item exhibited, and that is a lot of drawings!.
Exhibition runs until 6th June 2010.
One of the most difficult things to do is to be your own client, you never quite hit the target, or so it seems at times…but in rethinking the design and multi-purposes of my site I am happy to say that the resulting flexibilty, ease of use, and possibility to expand its varied content in a structured way feels like an important step in the right direction.
So here it is, in its modular glory, for which I am very grateful to the extremely helpful Ap at Alsjeblaft, from now on it’s all about visualising..;)
For the Dutch children clothing company Lamien, I have designed and animated characters to represent their online identity.
The concept revolves around a magical world inhabited by little winged girls and their everyday activities. They live cosily inside a golden egg perched on a tree branch on the outskirts of a big city. The egg, the company’s logo, is where their makers, also represented as winged characters, are busy tailoring their clothes in a flur of activities…
A ‘Doeboek’ is the equivalent of an activity book. Children can read it and get inspired to follow some of the ideas in it, hopefully adding to their play experience. That is why the Kunsthal in Rotterdam published this book to coincide with their summer exhibitions and to encourage children to explore the museum and get to know the art works a little better.

Project coordinated by Countercreatives.nl for Effectory, a company based in Amsterdam specialised in market research. I have designed a series of 12 images centered around summer themes, and made storyboards to show how to animate the transitions from one image to the other, to make the filling of online forms a little less dull….
What are the scenarios for the future? This was the premise for an online Flash presentation describing different scenarios and trends in our society for the coming 25 years…I have designed the presentation and navigation, animating text and images.
