Just as I am depending on my network for work as a freelance designer and other people I work with are also depending on people in their network I decided to give the people I work with a place on this site. At the moment I like to work in different networks of people as it keeps me fresh. For now I share the people I have been working with in 2015 and will add new people when my network expands.
Today I want to introduce Karianne Rygh, Dennis Cup and Madelon Eelderink to you.
Can you change the landscape of local news? Dennis Cup thinks he can! Dennis is a long term friend who left his marks in the grassroots street wear media industry and is currently using that knowledge to change the way local news works with Hearlemsbodem (dutch). He truly dares to be critical on social events in Haarlem and constantly experiments with new ways of bringing news. Besides that he is a very talented photographer and filmmaker. He is out their in the streets.
Madelon Eelderink to me is a true pioneer. She asked herself could I use active research the help world forward? Yes, her answer and she started her company 7senses to tackle social challenges i.a. in Uganda. Madelon co-creates solutions by using participatory active research. We share a similar sensorial approach from different backgrounds with a same goal. Want to know more about using (academic) active research in the social environment? Reach out to this lovely lady.
The last 3 months I had the honor to work with the inspiring Karianne Rygh. Karianne is a Norwegian designer/ design researcher who uses the ways of making and designing physical objects for doing research. The past months she showed me her thinking by doing and coaching Innovation students. For me it was a really nice learning journey, where we shared our vision and knowledge about design. When you are looking for a great designer and thinker contact Karianne.
