Ancient History: Consciousness

A few years ago we designed posters for a charity event called Consciousness. This is the non-communicative poster featuring fluor typography in a clear white space. We also made one with the time and place and stuff, but this one looks much nicer. Image via Jarr Geerligs' Flickr, who has an extensive archive of posters in Amsterdam.

MTV Playground: an Art Show - Part One

An art show by SWATCH & MTV is not about wandering through dull white spaces, not about endless discussions on meaningless paintings. It’s not about drinking cheap chardonnay, not about citing so called art critics. Not about endless debates on post modernism.

MTV Celebrates the future of art.

We did the concept, design and art-direction for the SWATCH MTV playground events. Adding meaning to the word "show" in "art show".

Below you'll find the first photo of the smallest event: a 120cm x 120cm x 220 cm box which fits an interactive screen, 36 par 20 fixtures, a 2000 watt strobo, a big smoke machine and a massive sound system.

More soon.

Royal Drinks

Prinsess Maxima was visiting New York for the Henry Hudson 400 celebration. Wearing a postage bag jacket by Dutch fashion designer Jan Taminiau, she signed a bottle of Bols Genever for the U.S. marketing V.P. of Lucas Bols.
