Work In Progress: Dear Wendy

Design Dear Wendy Moodboard

Design Dear Wendy Posters

The last time I shared some of our work, you all seem to like it and asked for more. So here is another project we are working on.

When Anouk and Simon of Dear Wendy approached us a few months ago, we knew right away we would hit it off. They come from the same island as Nick and they all share the same love for the sea.

Dear Wendy is Anouk and Simon on their guitars making dreamy folky music and we knew we wanted to capture that feeling in their website somehow. We also knew we wanted to do something with the fact they both come from an island, surrounded by sea. As you can see in the moodboard. We’re now in the final stages of designing their website and it should be online soon.

Dear Wendy landed a gig in Holland’s biggest coffee chain Coffee Company (think Starbucks, but Dutch). They asked us to design a poster for the occasion.

Because we couldn’t decide and got carried away, we made four poster designs and we’re sharing two of them with you. The first one is in the style of the moodboard and website design, the second one is my personal favorite. A poster that will stand out between all the other posters.

With the design of the posters, Nick and I really worked together as a design team. Something we’re always looking to improve. It’s easy to get lost in the your own process and forget to work together. This time we brainstormed, bounced designs around and both posters are the fruit of our co√∂peration.

What do you think? Which poster do you like more?

Work in Progress: Mabsback

A little over a year ago, Nick and I started our design studio. It began with a shared love for creating, Nick’s passion for computers, my love for art and our wish to be independent. So far, it’s been a great ride and we’ve been honored to work on some really great projects and with some really amazing people. I want to share one of them with you to show you what we’re up to all day. We’re still in the middle of this project.

When our close friend Martes asked us to design his website we were super excited. We hadn’t worked with a friend before and we were curious to see how it would turn out. So far, it’s been great. We meet up, spill all of our ideas, drink some beer and have fun.

When I asked Martes to describe what he does, he made up his own word. Oplettograaf (it’s Dutch. Sort of). Someone who notices his environment. An eagles eye. He is the kind of person who is hard to describe in one word. ¬†After a lot of brainstorming the best we could come up with is free spirit. A free-spirited philosopher who makes videos. A creative video maker. He is a pleasure to work with, comes up with a lot of ideas and isn’t afraid to tell us what he likes.

These are a few of the logo’s we have designed for Martes and a snippet of the moodboard. The final logo is still in the making. We can’t wait to see where this project will take us and to show you the end result. Stay tuned!
