PAF 2012 / ‘Collaborative Play’ (theme ) aims to stimulate cross-overs between different fields of play, interaction and design. The festival wants to connect a wider audience with the spaces of play. Focusing on showcasing games that evoke physical and emotional responses by putting the player into action with friends and foes.
Concept: Let the visitor interact and be part of the festival. Let the identity reflect a certain sense of community, creating an emotional bond. Collaborate and play!
Execution: I created a simple-to-use Tool/Template (T-shape within a circle) for use on posters, flyers, etc. Encouraging visitors to get creative and put them into action. By creating their own avatar each visitor could make a contribution to the festivals identity, become a member of the unique PAF community. To ensure a uniform imagery only the use of black was alowed. To communicate the concept I pre-designed 10 avatar logo's.Branding, Character Design2013

The main exhibition is showing work from game-designers and artists from The Netherlands and Belgium. Alongside this exhibition is a program including a symposium in the Stedelijk Museum and 'Game Day' during B-There Festival. This exhibition includes several independant games. These ‘Indie games’ have been realized without the intervention of a commercial production company. They differ from the familiar big game productions because of their different purpose.Creative Direction2013
Dutch clothing company MEES asked me to design the logo's for their new sports collection: MEES UNITED, and it's premium line HISTORICAL LEGENDS. Also to think up a brand new name and logo design for their self-invented ‘sports textile with a moisture management system’, COOLDRAFT.
The MEES logo consist of a large dot within a circle. I designed this more 'sports-related emblem' for their sports label MEES UNITED. Using the same proportions both labels now have a clear relationship with each other.Branding, Graphic Design2012
