Mama goes here

Going on a holiday with your little kids? No booking-stress anymore! On the site Mama goes here real parents share their personal tips for the best family holidays. I designed the logo and header for this website that is filled with the most amazing spots. My studio partner and allround brand identity developer Aura Scaringi from Mimimou did an excellent job in designing and building the site. It was fun to be working together on this project!
On the site I also share two holiday location tips from us. One where we have been two years ago (Krete), and one that was my favorite childhood camping in France.
Yes. We have been working really hard. So I guess… it’s time for a well deserved holiday!


A romantic french flower

Pink, purple and white. Those where the three colors of the romantic Bouvardia flowers that I had to design a package for. What a lovely assignment. The flowers are very sweet and candy like, so this is the feeling we needed to look for. It turned out a combination of watercolor paint for the flowers and pen for the leaves.

This Bouvardia was named Bellevardia ®, after a famous French physician in ordinary to His Majesty at the court of Louis XIII in the 17th century, Charles Bouvard. It was a beloved plant in the Jardin des Plantes, the botanical gardens in Paris, that monsieur Bouvard had founded.

Bellevardia ® package design was commissioned by Boerenjongens for Royal van Zanten, in coöperation with my agency Artbox Centre for Creation

Silent night?

Editorial illustration for OneWorld magazine about Babah, who is a fugitive from Siera Leone.
Babah came to the Netherlands a couple of years ago and he tells about his first Christmas here. It was so silent compared to Christmas in Siera Leone, where everyone goes out on the streets dancing and making music. In the Netherlands everyone is staying inside, making it cozy with a tiny circle of family and friends. It was hard for him,feeling alone here in the first year.
