For VPRO Nederland van Boven I was art director, meaning the creation of the programs’ logo, identity, style guide, leader, idents, broadcast design, online & offline communication design, augmented reality tv guide, promo videos, timelapse photography & post production. I worked with the editorial team at VPRO, the communication and TV guide department to conceptualize and roll out the marketing/promo media and designs for the program.
The program had an average 1,2 million viewers, was worldwide trending topic and had rave reviews on twitter, facebook, and in the news media. Instead of bending content and it’s form to what’s proven to be popular (which is what journalism and tv programs seem to be about now), VPRO has the guts to be innovative and try something different. It brought up discussions about ‘slow tv’, data visualization and journalism, and showed dutch tv stations that people are interested in television that gives some space to look and think.
Netherlands from Above showed Dutch viewers that the Netherlands is pretty from above, every centimeter designed by humans. It showed we are not such a mess as it all seems if you just watch the news (which only shows a selective virtual microcosmos based on reality). NLVB gives a new perspective on our everyday lives. We are a design country, a grid country, a control freak country, a protectionist country, with lines running through every bit of landscape, moving us around or dealing with water. Here you’ll find a selection of the media and footage I did and art directed. Thanks for reading/watching (please view all videos in HD).

Last night the Mediamonks 10 jaar celebration video went online, filmed by Lars and me. What a party, seriously. How strong and cool can a media brand get? It was packed. It was happening. It was mental.

Yesterday was TEDxAmsterdam, a wonderful inspiring event about Technology, Science and Design. We were nominated with project On the Ground reporter for the TEDx Challenge Award.
Respect to the winners: Wind Drinker, a great project. I was very nervous for the presentation on stage at the Stadsschouwburg (City Theater) for about 800 people on site, and many more watching live online or in 50 other locations in the Netherlands. There were many great speakers, and it was an honor to be part of an TED event, and to be nominated! Thanks to the organisation behind TEDx.

An impression of the 2010 Taekwondo visit to Korea. From Jeju Island to Seoul, from the buddhist lifestyle to the official Kukkiwon Taekwondo trainings & demonstrations. It was a 10 day trip, and filming/photographing happened quickly in between trainings & travels.

This is an edit of footage I shot for Exact (for Mediamonks), directed by Rogier Schalken and edited at Mediamonks. We followed 4 small and very different companies who use EXACT accounting software that ensures they can focus on their businesses. The clip is embedded on the EXACT website, to give it a more personal touch.

This is an online game I made to inform young people (age 15 – 20+) about the conflict in Darfur, and journalism in general. It’s a photorealistic first person point & click adventure based on real interviews with the people in Darfur, and real photo and video material shot in Sudan/Darfur.

This is a television leader I made for a VPRO program on how to become a Rat, based on a book. The program reveales stories of people making each others lives difficult. The design is lighthearted, in contrast with the shocking material found in the program. The design has been finished and approved for 3 months now, but the program itself is being reformatted. Thanks to Robert Wiering (VPRO) for the support.keep looking »
