Jeez, building this portfolio takes a lot more time then I thought. Currently I am bussy exporting and uploading various movies onto my YouTube account. If there is one thing I learned during my study, it is that exporting or rendering movies always takes you thrice the time you thought it would. Something goes wrong, codec isn’t right, sound is screwed up, images is distorted… I should just stick to photography and graphic work I guess, hehe. Despite all those trouble I hereby declare the Video & Animation section opened! You can now see my first flipbook, the big ass Travelogue I did together with a fellow student and a preview of the pMp Lab #0708 rehearsels:
If you take a good look you can even spot Miss Montreal in the dressing room! Ow, hell, she is already in the preview picture I see now.
And in the category manual labor: I am so glad I found back this tutorial on book making: The Basic Binding of Books by Jamier Butler. Go read it and go do it!
Some of you might know I have a fondness for analogue photography and the corresponding cameras. Sure, shooting some pictures digital is a lot quicker and most of the time easier too. I also own a digital SLR, but sometimes it’s just so much more relaxing to shoot something analogue. Over the years I collected a few. Some standard 35 mm film but also some that need a roll of 120 film. I don’t really have a preference for a type of film, but sometimes medium format’s large negatives make for cleaner and clearer pictures.
It all started with a Ricoh SLX 500 that I found in my parents attic (this is the standard procedure I think, haha) in 2004. It was a nice set all snugly kept away in a special carrying case. The set consisted of Continue reading Tools of the trade (pt .1)
My latest assignment for a corporate identity was for Marloes Rooswinkel. She was going to start her own business with financial services. She will be providing people with insurance, loans and pensions. This post will explain the design proces I followed with her and ending the whole story with some conclusions. This really worked well!
Marloes Rooswinkel and I had a first meeting in which we discussed the following 5 keywords:
- Brand – User experience
- Customer – Transmitter
- User – Receiver
- Information – Content
Customer and User communicate with each other and the Information and Design are your restrictions or boundaries.
First, I had no knowledge of the types of services she offers. This will often occur and as a designer you have to dive in to it to some extent. To get more feeling with the design, but also to understand the customer or the user of the product (in this case the website). Continue reading Design Proces — Rooswinkel financiële diensten
It’s totaly not new, but I found this again a while ago and just had to share it here…
There are tons of versions of this list and most of the time it is just posted on someone’s blog. So the source remains unknown.
Took some time, but the first three galleries are online in my Photography section. Skipping through all those pictures makes me want to get bussy with it again.
Especially the pinhole photo’s. I might have an exposition coming up that might require some pinhole photo’s. I’ll see to that anyway, because man do I love the images that roll out of there. I think it really fit’s the expo’s theme… I can’t say too much about it because not everything is sure, yet.
It will be an expo with my girlfriend, that’s for sure. And it’ll probably be in Enschede too…maybe in the Dynamo?
