De Grote Kunstshow / The Big Art Show

De Grote Kunstshow. A fascinating introduction to the rebellious contemporary art from the KRC Collection, from Rattan Chadha. Hardly ever exhibited, but very much worth seeing.

‘When you gather around a piece of art for ten minutes with three hundred people, the experience becomes much more intensive.’

Pink Ribbon Annual Report 2012-2013

This years annual report of breast-cancer charity organisation Pink Ribbon is anything but frivolous.
Clear visualisation of the content was a key demand, telling the story of people dealing with the disease a necessity.
How to get the maximum out of ordinary Wire-O binding was our challenge.

Accompanied by six beautiful Koos Breukel portraits.

Rearranging Content

We made a new visual identity for Stadsschouwburg Amsterdam. Here are the first examples. The theatre’s need for a strong and clear visual concept has been answered by using two prominently placed yellow bars. These two bars are solely used for brand communication. As these elements are so visually powerful, the most diverse programmes can be communicated effectively in the space remaining, without cluttering the overall identity.

Turn the heat on

Famous theater company ‘Münchner Kammerspiele‘ comes over soon for a special visit at Stadsschouwburg Amsterdam. For that special occassion we thought it would be a good idea to burn an bavarian icon, namely: die Lederhose.
Thanks to Fulco Smit Roeters for this special photo and sorry for the accompanying odor- and smoke harassment. We think it was really worth it.
