AMC navigation app banner

Client: AMC | Agency: M2mobi

The AMC navigation app (for the Academic Medical Center, in Amsterdam) was created and developed by M2mobi in order to make a hospital visit as convenient as possible, especially by providing easy and quick directions inside the hospital. Because hospital visitors usually don’t know they can download this app or how it can be useful, I designed this roll-up banner that stays in the entrance of the hospital to promote the app and makes it easier to download it there by simply scanning the QR-code.

North Sea Jazz Festival

Willem de Kooning Academy, 2011

A poster I designed for the competition for the North Sea Jazz Festival 2011. It is a jazz event that happens once a year in Rotterdam, the Netherlands. On the poster, I use the shape of a piano as a window to the city, emphasising the typography on the piano, with a more classic vibe that I get from jazz.

Dimensions: A1 – 594 x 841mm

Magazine cover

Willem de Kooning Academy, 2010

A magazine cover I designed for an introductory assignment for the typography classes at the WdKA. The ideas was simply to introduce myself to the group, so I designed a magazine cover showing, through typography, my interests for technology and the transition from architecture to graphic and information design.

Dimensions: 230 x 290 mm

The book I wish existed

Willem de Kooning Academy, 2010

I was asked to design the book I wish existed, and I did it not in the two coordinate dimensions, but in a spherical coordinate system. It sounds geek, I know, and that’s why I will not explain in details how I created the parameters to determine the size, shape and measurements of the book. But if you are interested, I wrote a text about the Cartesian and spherical coordinates systems, I counted the number of letters, words, sentences and paragraphs of each chapter, and I used these numbers to calculate the book dimensions and to generate the fractals using a computer program. The result is a very unique and exciting shperical book, with a very mathematical, geometrical and, why not, geek vibe, that represents the book I missed.

Dimensions: 13cm radius, 13cm height
