Jaarbeurs Utrecht ︎︎︎Poster & Banner
in collaboration with Noah van de Wetering︎︎︎
There’s a tradition since 1917 where Dutch designers create posters for the anual Jaarbeurs Utrecht events. To celebrate the doors being opened again after the measures have been lowered, Jaarbeurs challenged the students of the HKU (Hogeschool voor de Kunsten Utrecht) to create a poster for the re-opening of their events.

These are typographic logo’s where I study all the shapes and possibilities of a letter. Sometimes legible and sometimes not. The words are given bij my friends to challenge me in making a typographic logo of their words or names. Trying to inherent their personality into the style of a custom logo. Everything is custom made, no existing typefaces.

Self-curatedChalk on asphalt. 60 Meters2020
During the pandemic of covid-19 in sprint 2020 we were all being stuck in home-isolation. While the city streets remain empty, the countryside became more crowded by new visitors. Especially the long road in front of my home. A message is painted on this road to simply remind them again how beautiful nature is.
Glyphs that died for our Latin script
A one week workshop given by S†ëfan Schäfer︎︎︎ about death anthropology and design resulted in a visual research of ancient glyphs that died for our latin language. I’ve digitalized 50 glyphs from a language that died a long time ago. (old Slavic and old Greek). Most of the characters developed to latin or cyrillic script but its original form can’t be found in modern alphabets anymore.
Research on human movements
The amount of passengers in Utrecht Central grows fast. The old station was made for 35 million travelers each year. Currently the new station comes across 88 million travelers and this amount keeps growing in the future expecting it to have 100 million passengers in 2030. This study has been done on an experimental level where I observed human movements and their navigating behaviour in public spaces. Watching people, describing their behaviour and also walking straight into their path tying to collide into the passangers on purpose.
Does architecture shape our human navigation or does our navigation impact the way we build roads/architectural constructs?
