Ronald Snijders en normale mensen

Webdesign made for Normale Mensen (normal people), the website of stand up comedian Ronald Snijders. Had quite a good laugh while working on this assignment.


Fronterra, uniting people around food

Proud to have been able to make the logo and website for the Fronterra foundation.
Fronterra is an organization that aims to break down ethnic barriers and create common understanding through communal dinners.

In large parts in Europe, multi-ethnic communities live in a state of alienation. Ethnic divisions are amplified for political purposes, resulting in simmering tensions or outright conflict. People lose hope, retreat in apathy or leave.

Fronterra's mission is to help people bootstrap themselves out if this misery by pooling their capacity and by co-developing social business ventures.

Design for a new responsive website for Stichting Mainline. Mainline is a Dutch based international platform dedicated to improving the health and quality of life of drug users.

The whole design traject started with a personas search and guide, a written representation of the website's intended users, prioritising features and functionality.
The extensive site is in Dutch and English, it is responsive and parts of it have a parallax scrolling effect.

Lost & Found invitation

I designed the invitation for Lost & Found, an evening of stray images and sounds held in De Waag in Amsterdam.

The four coloured blocks in both triangles are all exactly the same size, but miraculously, the second triangle has an extra block of white space appearing out of nowhere. First lost, then found.

Parallax scrolling & responsive website

The studio just finished its first responsive website with a parallax scrolling effect. Take a look at this one-page website for RRT, a young company shaking up the sewer reparation bizz with a new and better way of repairing sewers.

As our world becomes more and more digital and mobile-driven, interface design increasingly defines how we connect with people, brands and services.
