Editorial and graphic design with a strong conceptual and typographical bias.
Our designs set out from the assignment’s individual characteristics. Each new project poses a new question that demands a novel answer. Our approach is critical and exploratory, which leads to distinctive results that are highly diverse. No single design is the same.

Tuesday, April 24 the stamp 100 jaar Nederlands Openluchtmuseum was presented. The sheetlet of 10 stamps celebrates the centenary of the museum and is themed Celebrating everyday life. The design answers to the question of PostNL and the museum to create a distinctly fresh and contemporary impression of 100 years daily life.
The design arranges a collection of 15 brightly colored monochrome images of different sizes on a sheet of 10 stamps. The rhythm and the overflow of the images suggests movement and layering. The selection and combination of images creates new narratives as cutouts of a larger story. Here, there, then and now.
