Creative / Art Director
Aesthetically inclined. I’m captivated by certain vintage objects and works of creativity. I like mid-century modern design. It has a certain look and feel that is sharp, seductive and elegant. Covetable, well made interior pieces. Shapes that seduce; refined wooden sideboards and tables with tapered legs. Colours that convey style and charm; think olive greens and grey. Natural materials like wood and wool. Combined together, they create spaces that are chic, clean-lined and vintage minimal.
Creating mood and feeling are an intrinsical part of what makes creative work, design and creative direction so appealing. Thinking about how all elements need to work together in relation to its environment and users is a fascinating exercise. In today’s modern world, this is just as much about converging digital and physical.
Creating atmosphere and designing with light to influence how people feel is what got me into the field of lighting design back in 2010. Walking into a space my eyes are immediately drawn to the lighting design. At best the use of lighting and darkness is what makes us resonate with our surroundings.
I’m a fiend for a great pour over. Coffee is central in my everyday life. Drinking a great tasting cup of coffee leads to a moment of joy and sensory pleasure.
Work, learn, travel or a good conversation with friends, there is always a cup of freshly brewed coffee by my side. The fragrance and aroma of fresh ground coffee can bring intense satisfaction.
Coffee is about meeting different people, having new experiences and creating moments of lasting memories. During travel, coffee is tied to the places we see and the people we meet.
