Bright #53

Bright #53 is out and will be in stores from next week. Guest editor Alexander Klöpping wrote about YouTube schooling (Buro Rust made some fantastic illustrations). I wrote about a scale 1:1 self build car, the Toyota Camatte. In the cockpit feature of the magazine I compare the Le Mans accident the resulted in the…

3000 minutes V2

The first version of 3000 minutes went live some time ago. It worked quickly, contained a lot of valuable and funny content and looked good. Customer feedback suggested we could win a few points on the intuitiveness of the website. So Reinout Tiekstra overhauled the design and Arjen de Vries (das Blitz) and Michiel Bodewes…

3000 minutes live

The first project of Jack + Stella and my biggest project of the year so far has gone live. 3000minuten.nl lets you select a tour guide that will show you lots of stuff you can do in one weekend in the city of Groningen. Don’t like a particular suggestion, swipe in something else. Michiel Bodewes…

The Holy Grail: Plastic from wood

Design agency G2K asked me to delve into the stories of the Eems Delta region. Not far from where I live, renowned for it’s harbour and chemical industry. But these stories weren’t about black smoke, polution, chemical spills or environmental disasters. Quite the opposite. I was given a list of 10 people that were involved…

Adidas Speedcell Basketball

Over a year ago I got to make a fool out of myself at ‘De Toekomst’, the training facility for the Ajax soccer club. Adidas launched their miCoach soccer shoes and I got to sprint, kick a ball around and underachieve amongst journalists who had played soccer since they were kids. So I asked the…
