A selection of works.
‘The Universal photographer’ by Anne Geene & Arjan de Nooy offers an introduction to the life, work and opinions of a fictional photographer who had the tendency to copy, collect and combine styles to define and continuously redefine his own identity.
Situated in Amsterdam West, ‘De School’ is a club, restaurant, gallery, gym, and community gathering point situated in a repurposed school building by the Dutch architect J. B. Ingwersen. The venue’s identity was based upon its floor plan and building structure, which reflects the modular aspect of spaces within the Brutalist inspired building. By revealing the underlying grid in all the output it is a clear framework to build on but also becomes the recognisable identity. Light installation by Children of the Light and graphic design i.c.w. Edwin van Gelder (Mainstudio).
Poster design for exhibition series ‘Tijdgenoten’ at De School.
June 8, 2018 marked the 50th anniversary of the ‘RFK funeral train’. Up to one million Americans stood along the railway, paying their respects as the train slowly made its way from New York City to Washington, D.C. This book ‘Robert F. Kennedy Funeral Train - The People’s View’ by artist Rein Jelle Terpstra reconstructs this important day in American history by using vernacular photographs, film stills, and the personal recollections of eyewitnesses. It was selected as ‘The Best Dutch Book Designs 2018’ and awarded Gold Medal at ‘Best Book Design From All Over The World’ in 2019.
Exhibition design for Cedric Price: The Dynamics of Time at Bureau Europa, Maastricht i.c.w. Jan Nauta.

Graphic identity and poster design for a club called ‘Noorderschip’, based in the historic Veronica ship laying in the harbour of Amsterdam north. These posters show the arrival of the club, layering the new ‘compass’ logo on white, black and the colourful details of the ship. Photography by Sanne van den Elzen.
‘Dodonaei’ by Anne Geene & Arjan de Nooy is a particular way of ‘reclassifying’. As a tribute to the sixteenth-century botanist Rembert Dodoens, the Dodonaea genus of plants named after him by Linnaeus is deconstructed and rearranged. The use of the Risograph process for the printing is a deliberate choice making to show this alternative herbarium with a more playful awareness. The various emphatically uncoated but tinted papers enhance the organic, botanical atmosphere. In 2017 it was selected for ‘The Best Dutch Book Designs’
