Visual Identity for ice cream shop Lily à la Vanille, Citadelle de Blaye, France

I worked very hard and with a lot of fun to finish all the items for this cute ice cream stand in Citadelle de Blaye. The brave Inge started this shop in 2018 and asked me to design her identity and do some styling for her place. Now that the new ice cream season is coming again, it is time to further expand the visual identity, such as menus, outside plates and design for a festival point of sale. Instagram: @lilyalavanille

Collage workshop at Paper Art & Design, 9 March 2019

During this workshop you will learn how to create compositions of paper, patterns, color, pictures and surfaces. It doesn’t matter if you’re making a figurative or abstract image. We discuss your own chosen subject/fascination for your collage. Then we determine (using your sketches) with what materials and techniques you can go run. There will be choice from different paper types including some manufactured by Loes. The other are papers that Daniele itself also used in her collages.

The first workshop took place on 9 March 2019. The second workshop will take place on 6 April 2019.

Presentation Vuurvliegje at Object, 7 – 10 February

Presentation of a collaboration with vlak. For the past few months I have been busy with the development of a small light. While Gregor van Egdom (vlak) engineered the technical tour de force for this ultra efficient light, I came up with the idea and visual identity. We launch “Vuurvliegje” (Dutch for “Fireflies”) at the fair Object in the Haka Building in Rotterdam.

Expo: “Facetten van papier”, 15 January – 12 April 2019

I have my work on display in a lovely Gallery Paper Art & Design from Loes Scheepens in The Hague, I use paper and old book pages to make collages. In the series ‘Undressed’ persons depicted in layers of paper, that are dressing and undressing. The action dressing up is sometimes a struggle, then again sensual. Sometimes the ‘ fight ‘ with the garment so portrayed, that person seems to be almost one with the garment.

In alternation with the collages of me there is also work by Loes Scheepens. New hand-made wall objects, large and small, represent a very different world, dictated by nature, containing the stillness and movement. These works are going to have a connection with my collages.
