  • 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

    12 postcards, 12 lighthouses, 12 stars on the flag of the EU, 12 commitments to its economical rules. The outcome of an assignment on the secret poetry of capitalism, by Sam de Groot. Together with Noëm Held. 2014.

  • 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:


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.
