Graphic design for essays
During my studies I had to write quite a bit. For some of these pieces I thought the content could benefit greatly from more elaborate designs.
Premaster thesis: Goblin Market - 2018
During my premaster in Art history I worked on a thesis about the influence of different illustrations on the interpretation of Christina Rossetti's poem Goblin Market. I wanted room for large images, but also to add something special to the overall design. I handbound the booklet with a Japanese binding and handpainted the frontispiece. This illustration represents how the hand of the writer (with a pen) and the illustrator (with a brush) work together on the monogram GM, which stands for the poem itself.
Internship: Kunstveiling.nl - 2018
For my internship at Kunstveiling I made this magazine-style report. At this internship I mostly did research for the artists database, with a focus on the applied arts and design. The pattern on the cover is inspired by a top view of famous vases from designer Alvar Aalto.
Essay: Andre Breton - 2016
In 2016 I wrote an essay about Andre Breton's Studio, which used to be his home workplace but is now (partly) on display at Centre Pompidou in Paris. It is an ecclectic collection of curiosities of a man who contributed to the Surrealism movement. In the design of this essay I wanted to embody the same feeling I got when I saw the Studio. I chose to make three collages to add as illustrations to my plea.
