I am an independent designer, researcher and writer, trained in media design and cultural anthropology. Based in between Paris and Amsterdam I work on a freelance-basis on commissioned projects while also developing independent research projects.
In my work I look at design and typography as part of public debate, visual culture and public space. In my research I document, categorise and re-contextualise seemingly mundane visual vocabularies in public space and public debate to offer a new perspective. However graphic design serves as the basis of all my projects my work manifests itself in different forms, among which screen-based, printed, and three-dimensional media.
After gaining work experience at Studio Dumbar (Rotterdam, NL) and Base Design (Brussels, BE), I work independently since 2014, while at times tutoring at the Design Academy Eindhoven.
