Nine times a day, this online application pulls an array of photographs out of twitter messages and creates a randomly styled image out of them. These small, pixelated images are then displayed in an ever growing collection website.

Dogtrail

A logo can be a lot more than just a static image of a swoosh… For Dogtrail, a small company that organizes tracking courses for dogs and their owners, I designed a logo toolbox consisting of a truetype font. This font lets you choose from different logo designs combined with 25 different silhouettes of dogs, and a cat.

5 year anniversary FCDC

Publicity campaign for the fifth anniversary of the FC Donders Centre for Cognitive Neuroimaging at the Radboud University Nijmegen. This campaign emphasizes the strong points of the FCDC, being state of the art brain scan technique performed by excellent scientists.

Whaa is an agency which organizes a broad scala of activities for, with and by immigrants and minorities, ranging from urban music performances to the world music stage of the Vierdaagsefeesten in Nijmegen. To enable them to present themselves in a recognizable, unique fashion without losing diversity, I designed a system of vignettes which serve as constructing elements for a logo.

A first result is a concept for an online application, that enables users to create an image by uploading photographs, entering texts and backgrounds and setting levels of interaction and intensity. The resulting image can be used online (background or image) or offline (poster or flyer.
