Nagele

Nagele

Nagele was designed by the architectural team “De 8” between 1948 and 1954. The village has iconic shapes and the new identity shows it off, square blocks with primary colors.

I was responsible for the identity, some on- and offline communication and the website, which shows the latest news and events in and around Nagele. The events can be printed as posters from the website for local offline communication.

This project is commissioned by Gemeente Noordoostpolder.

Topcompetitie

Topcompetitie

Topcompetitie is a long lost (last used in 2000) classification/placing list in the elite cycling competition in The Netherlands. In cooperation with the KNWU (Dutch Cycling Organisation) the people behind Topcompetitie (Top Competition) want to re-introduce “the list” into Dutch cycling to keep track of prospects for pro cycling. The identity and website (development done by www.andriesreitsma.nl) are based on bright orange and white – which will correspond with the orange, white, dotted and blue jerseys in the peloton which show the leaders in the current standings. The logo(mark) is a dynamic base with diagonal lines and a simple T/Arrow pointing to the top. More information: www.topcompetitie.nu. Photography: Léon van Bon

Cinetree

Cinetree

Together with Fabian Hijlkema we’ve worked on branded collateral and a fresh new homepage for Cinetree. Cinetree is a platform with beautiful handpicked movies and documentaries. The campaign with Cinetree movie posters (stills from Drive, Public Enemy Number One and The Act Of Killing) were spread around Amsterdam and Den Haag with quotes from Humberto Tan, Carice van Houten and Joris Luyendijk.

Tesla taxi Service

Tesla taxi Service

Tesla Taxi Service is among the first in Switzerland to offer an electric taxi service. Their mission is to drive you safely and comfortably to your chosen destination – in an eco-friendly way. TTS’ new identity (and website) is a bold tri-tone style, preserving the luxurious appearance of Tesla and pairing it with a classic Taxi color. The identity is based on the multiple names other luxurious taxi services are using, therefore the identity is using terms such as car, driving, limo, cab and taxi in the identity as well, which can be seen (for example) on the scrolling action of the website – showing the motion of traffic and taxis in a busy street. The website (also) gives people the opportunity to book a cab online, whenever you need one in Switzerland. Together with friend/photographer Paolo De Caro the tone of TTS is set in a luxurious way, showing the luxurious in- and exterior of the cars TTS are offering. The identity is printed on GF Smith Duplex Colorplan 700gsm Citrine and Ice White using FF Mark trhoughout the whole identity.

Anyone wearing their neon caps, sunglasses, shirts or hoodies is bound to make you turn your head when they walk by.

Bereikbaar

Bereikbaar

A subtle logo, for a new brand called bereikbaar. Bereikbaar means signal/being reachable in dutch which is a link to the services they offer. The essence of bereikbaar is repairing mobile devices together with providing (new) mobile parts. The name is based on the fact that people want to be reachable again, they want to have a signal on their mobile device. Bereikbaar was an online business at first, but now they focus on the offline market, they become reachable/bereikbaar for the people living in and around Heerenveen (The Netherlands).
