Nice to do some web design again;-) It’s for a group of joined protestant churches in Netherlands that want to stimulate their members to act on their beliefs and to ‘walk the talk’. The design therefore doesn’t have a lot of words on the main page;-). The shadow of the person who is walking (acting) becomes a light beam in the different situations that are portrayed in the pictures. To bring light and hope to others is the biggest difference we can make with our lives.
During my uni-years i had a night-watch job at an elderly home. Since those times I’ve a weak spot for old people. I just can’t help it. The way they’re wise and a bit helpless at the same time intrigues me. That’s why I simply have to share this beautiful project with you. Philipp Toledo’s ‘Days with my father’ is an extremely moving photo-journal about his aging father, who’s experiencing more and more memory problems.
What I like about the story’s, is that you often can’t decide if they’re funny or sad. For example when Phillipp asks his 98 year old dad to look in the mirror, this happens: ‘He was so horrified with his own appearance, that he refused to leave the house until he found a ‘black pencil’ to dye his white hair with’.

This summer I worked with a very committed and creative urban architect who started his own firm 4 months ago. I liked the process as much as the result; for I’m not used to receiving sketches back after I’ve sent drafts of my idea’s;-).
The constructed environment around us is influencing us every day. The logo is like a wall with a window that communicates different needs of different people. I really like how this logo works in combination with pictures. In the temporary website you can see how we put different images behind the logo in a slide show, to add a 3D experience. The silhouettes become part of the spaces that are photographed: www.senseconceptdesign.com
