I am a visual designer who wants to make people aware of the dishonesties & problems in the world, by using research, conceptual thinking and graphic design. With my own projects, I want to open the eyes of people, activate them and let them think in different perspectives so they can reflect upon their self.

Holy Nature

My contribute to the magazine “Bundle”. The chapter is in the theme of sustainablility. Everything you need to know in order to be a sustainable designer.

By looking at the life cycle of packaging material, an important role is played by the graphic designer. I was concerned with the issue: What can we as a graphic designer change to have a less negative impact on the environment?

By using constructive criticism in the form of: cause, problem, consequence, how are we going to change this, you can wake up a lot of people and make them aware of their way of doing things. By showing images of a jellyfish swimming in the sea in contrast to a plastic bag floating in the ocean, you can see the effect of mankind on nature.

Because I used so much ink during the process, I campe up with a minimalistic design in compination with the blindpress technique. In addition, I have chosen for a recycled paper to have less impact on the nature.

 

Photography and design.
