‘Nutshuis Den Haag’ organized a green event in their garden and asked me to photograph and design the poster for them.
This event was part of the open garden weekend festival ‘Struinen in Haagse tuinen’. It took place on Saturday 24 and Sunday 25 June, 2017.
With my plant cuttings swap event ‘Stekjesruil‘ I was participating at the festival and therefore I am also part of the poster.
With much excitement, last year ushered in a fresh collaboration with graphic design company dailymilk
which involved taking photos of the working environment and its employees. The project was commissioned by Klaas-Jan Bernouw -the creative director- on the premise of depicting the office in an original state. I was allowed full creative control.
