A fiction reality cross-over essay exploring the written word in a three dimensional space. This is explored through the usage of mixed media like spoken word, typography, literature and performance. Exhibit during the I am sure you know what I am talking about 2018 graduation show of the University of the Arts Utrecht.

Album art work and publication for Benjamin Fro. Behave & Praten over Leven

A couple of spreads designed during my internship at Córdova Canillas for Connecting Spaces  Hong Kong - Zurich. Art direction and design by Córdova Canillas and icw Oliver Campbell. WITH is a publication cataloguing three years of projects at Connecting Spaces. The graphic system of this “book-zine” allowed for a design that changed drastically in parts, with seemingly chaotic design being broken up by slower paced sections. This allowed for a clear distinction between types of content and makes for a catalogue that never gets too repetitive. Featured on It’s Nice That
