Targeting Breast cancer with Design

2013 1021 bookcover

It was such an honor to make this cover for researcher Janneke Jaspers. She spent 6 years in the lab of NKI (Netherlands Cancer Institute) to find out more on anti-drug resistance in mouse models of breast-cancer. The illustration on the cover is a dart/target board and a maze at the same time.

According to Janneke it was sometimes a real struggle and (re)search for useful data/output, I tried to visualize that in the cover. With the pinkish skin-tissue of the background the illustration also resembles a woman’s breast (in an abstract way of course).

I wish Janneke a lot of inspiration and perseverance in her future career in researching breast-cancer. A lot of woman are extremely thankful for what you’re doing… I’m one of them;-)!

Work in Progress: Book Design

Healthy Booklet Shanghai

Working on the lay-out of a booklet about ‘how to live healthy in a polluted city like Shanghai’. This is my first design-proposal for the cover. I wanted to visualize┬áthe idea of a guide in the whole book. The skyline cut-outs in different fruits and communicate how the city can ‘eat away’ the much needed healthy ‘ingredients’ of our life. Like it so far;-)?
