On 20 november 2010 the 14th Grafisch Papier Hier event will take place in Pakhuis de Zwijger in Amsterdam. This year the theme is Paper Plus.
I’m proud that I’ll be one of the speakers, together with graphic designers René Put (NL) and Antoine+Manuel (FR).
The workshop in Shanghai was amazing! I had 23 participants who worked their asses off. Very nice people, mostly from China and the Netherlands. Lots of talent.
The theme of the World expo is “Better city, better life”. The Dutch pavilion is called “Happy street”.
Singer/songwriter Wotienke wrote her song “City Stories” especially for the workshop. She wrote it in Amsterdam and recorded it with her band in Pržno (Czech). The workshop was organised in The Hague and held in Shanghai. Participants came from Amsterdam, Groningen, Bergen, Shanghai, Taiwan, Beijing, Kasinger, Lanzhou, Zhengzhou, Toronto and more.
They all animated their own city stories for the music video.
The workshop was part of the “Don’t believe the type” event, organised by graphic design studio Trapped in Suburbia. There were also workshops by Yomar Augusto and Underware and lectures by Trapped in Suburbia, Yomar and Underware and an exposition with type from the Hague, that also contained some of my letters.
It was a very long, but great day.
During the Graphic Design Festival Breda some of my videos will be part of the Paper Cut exposition.
Also, on the 8th of june 2010, I’ll be giving a lecture about my work. The lecture and the exposition will be held at KOP.
Graphic Design Festival: 8 - 30 may 2010
Paper Cut exposition: 8 may - 20 june 2010
On the 18th of may I’ll be giving a workshop during the World Expo in Shanghai, at the ‘Don’t Believe the Type’ festival.
‘Don’t Believe the Type’ is a one day typographic festival, initiated by Dutch design agency Trapped in Suburbia. This year it will be held on the 18th of May in Shanghai and
will focus on the typographic excellence from The Hague.
This day will be packed with workshops, lectures and visual excitement provided by Underware, Yomar Augusto, Rogier Wieland and Trapped in Suburbia.
Handmade typographic music video
A workshop for twenty participants working together to produce a handmade typographic music video in one day.
Using only analog media (and a digital still camera), we’re going to make a typographic music video for a brand new song by Dutch singer/songwriter Wotienke. She will write and record the song especially for this occasion.
Each participant produces his own part of the music video by animating typographic elements, without a computer. That means 25 frames per second, all handmade! We're going to focus mainly on adding “life” to our animations. At the end of the day all animations will be edited to the
final music video.

The workshop is free of charge.

On the 29th of january I’ll be giving a stop motion workshop during the STOP.MOTION event in Foam, museum for Photography, Amsterdam.
