MOONMISSION 2030 MOONMISSION 2030 is a collaboration between Recycle Valley (Amsterdam) and studio de Quaasteniet (The Hague). Our main goal is to retrieve a plastic bag that has been left on the Moon after one of the Apollo Moon missions. With this idea in mind, we hope to create a platform on which we, as intergalactic environmentalists, can discuss the plastic pollution problem here on Earth and its future and possible solution(s).

In this ongoing project with a self-proposed deadline in the year 2030, studio de Quaasteniet acts as a visual designer and creative director. The project was launched during the Dutch Design Week in Eindhoven in 2017.

Inbetween "A selection of graduates from the Royal Academy of Art (The Hague) and Willem de Kooning Academy (Rotterdam) and their venture into film, animation and documentary." Inbetween is a cinematic event held at Lumen in Delft.

Initiated by Pleunie Franke, the event is organised as a way of showcasing the work of freshly graduated artists, and to give them an oppurtunity to talk about their work in an environment that differs from that of the academy.

The visual identity of the event consisted out of silkscreened pearly posters, flyers, animations, a website and a trailer which was shown in the cinema.

Vluchtmaat "Vluchtmaat is an independent prototype of a socially conscious society within the city of Amsterdam. On one hand it is an economically sustainable housing model for refugees in limbo, and on the other hand, it is a stimulating workspace for socially engaged citizens and entrepreneurs."

The Vluchtmaat prototype, managed by Stichting Noodzaak, was nominated for a Dutch Design Award in the Habitat category during the 2017 Dutch Design Week in Eindhoven. Katarína Gališinová and studio de Quaasteniet were approached to document the concept and create the exhibition design.

The Distance to Mars ­­— Newspaper
Newspaper for my graduation project The Distance to Mars, in which I created my own space agency (Initiative for Celestial Exploration) and travelled to Mars to prove that requirements are non-existent when it comes to space travel. The project included designing my own spaceships, capturing photos of the Martian surface and collecting Martian rock samples. The newspaper is the carrier of both the research and results of the Mars mission.

The Distance to Mars ­­— Geological photobook An important aspect of the mission to Mars was reconnaissance. The D1400SP BESTRON satellite was equipped with a high-resolution camera system that was capable of taking photographs of the Martian landscape. A number of suitable landing sites for the first manned mission were chosen from these and collected in this book.

The Distance to Mars — Patches A space mission is not complete without it's own mission patch design. For the ICE's first manned mission to Mars, a selection of words was made from the Outer Space Treaty. This Treaty was also redisgned to fit in one of the pockets of a spacesuit. Project website

What's in a circle? How does the scale of a circle affect the interpretation of it? This publication contains photographs of my visual research into the exciting world of circles. By playing with perspective, surface, scale and contrast I wanted to see how far the limits of this closed shape could be stretched.

Spring Festival For the 2015 Spring Festival of the Royal Conservatoire in The Hague I was asked to design a visual identity. As the Festival was once initiated by the late Dick Raaijmakers, I chose to approach the design in the same manner as he approached some of his music pieces; by cutting and pasting directly into the materials he worked with. For me this material was the title of the festival.
