This brand identity was created to express the museum’s classic yet contemporary and varied character. Since the museum is located in an old cloth hall built in 1640, we took the historic image of a lead cloth seal (lakenloodje) as the starting point for the entire identity. You can find the 'lakenloodje' in some shape or form on every brand material and imagery.
Sign of the Times is an exhibition about pilgrim badges at the Zeeuws Museum. These centuries-old pewter brooches depict the most diverse and strange imagery- from religious scenes to the utmost obscene visuals. I transformed the imagery, which included vaginas and penises with wings, beards and legs, into illustrated icons and patterns.
Glow-in-the-dark icons depicting the festival’s different themes serve as the main design for this new brand identity. All the brand materials were made with glow-in-the-dark ink, printed on black as a base color.
Kaagman & Kortekaas is one of Amsterdam’s hippest new restaurants. Chef Giel Kaagman and maître/sommelier Bram Kortekaas opened this bistro-style hotspot in September 2015, and they’ve been receiving high praise and raving reviews from guests and critics alike ever since. VISSCH+STAM created the corporate and visual identity for this successful culinary adventure.
The Museumplein, or Museum Square, follows a straight line along three different museums in Kerkade. The visual identity was inspired by the physical aspect of this line, as well as the overarching theme of unity present in the different institutions that make up the square.
Translated as Generous Magpie, De Gulle Ekster is an online subscription service for unique art and design. Much like how a magpie enjoys collecting shiny objects in his bird’s nest, the curators at De Gulle Ekster find the best artists, designers, photographers, chefs and architects. But unlike a magpie, De Gulle Ekster shares its findings by offering products and services through a quarterly subscription.

Language is a rich and dynamic subject. Diverse and interesting enough to deserve its own museum- but not just any museum. Because sometimes a subject is best displayed on a scale far smaller than that of a museum. Taal! decided to take on this challenge. They create small-scale, language-related projects in and around Leiden, all revolving around sustainability and community-building. The visual identity for Taal! uses bright illustrations and colorful, legible designs to express the diverse and dynamic scope of their projects.
