⑧ Surrounded by water
This series of maps was produced for my graduation at the Rietveld Academie. It was originated by the idea of organizing an event in which, together with my classmates, experiment possible approaches (within the field of design) to cultural, social and political issues of Sardinia. The maps introduce a personal view on such themes, suggesting a field in which to work, research and produce. 2015.
⑦ Gerrit Rietveld Academie diplomas 2015
Design of the diplomas that the academy awarded to 186 fresh artists and designers. It's not easy to design your own diploma, but it can be highly rewarding! Together with Rabea Ridlhammer. 2015.
⑥ W139 posters and van
I was asked by W139 in Amsterdam to produce a series of silk screen prints to illustrate some of their principles. And they wanted their van pimped up. 2015.
⑤ 4 screens, 12 hours, 27 posters
A wallpaper of A0 posters especially produced in one session of 12 hours for the room installation of the graphic design graduation show 2015. My ego on a wall. Not the best, but probably bigger, bolder and more colorful than anything else in the building. Kindly assisted by my buddies Brent Dahl and Lou Buche. 2015.
④ Get it,Gerrit!
Get it, Gerrit! is a pop-up bookshop that collects, exhibits and sells the works of the students of the graphic design department of the GRA. It has appeared so far in Amsterdam and Paris, and perhaps it will appear again somewhere else. GiG is me, Ott Metusala, Noëm Held, Andrada Smaranda and Lou Buche. 2015.
③ The secret poetry of the EU
② South Side Youth United 96
Scarf, jackets and other stuff for a fictional group of football supporters. A research about sport and class consciousness for the Radical Sport Centre, an assignment by Marc Roig Blesa and Rogier Delfos. Together with Noëm Held, Miquel Hervás Gómes, Tomas Malpique, Ruben Baart and Jasper Gottlieb. 2014.
① Local newspaper
For a school assignment dealing with the theme of "local newspaper" i dressed up as a sandwich man with provocative slogans and walked into an Amsterdam's market. Among others, the slogans deal with racism, migrations, monarchy, homosexuality, nationalism, stereotypes, fascism, patriarchy, war, colonialism. 2014.
⓪ Other stuff
Other things i like. Mostly made by me, but not necessarily.
Billboard at the Rietveld Academie.
...and the van:
This catalog frames the collection as of June 2015, after 4 events in 8 months. Many other pieces have been sold and not documented. Check the facebook page
We still have a lot. If you want them, drop me a line.
But wait, there is more: we also did the scarf!
And an underground fanzine!
Nowhere to be found anymore.
It really happened. Here's video
