Illustrations and graphic design for the project 'The first 100 Days Scan' of the Hanze University o

For the Hanze University of Applied Sciences, I created illustrations and did the graphic design of the research paper called ‘The First 100 Days Scan’. The purpose of this project is to give students the best possible start in order to prevent unnecessary school dropout. The first 100 days appear to be an important period for students (May, 2022).

Summer visitor campaign with Marketing Groningen and Groningen City Club

To encourage local residents to return to Groningen's inner city after the intense corona period, I worked with Marketing Groningen and Groningen City Club on a beautiful visitor campaign. During the summer of 2022, I worked on illustrations of beautiful, vibrant places in Groningen and Haren. My illustrations were captured through a photography and video campaign. Through ads and videos on social media and posters, they were distributed throughout the region (June, 2022).
