Logo design for Het Huis van de Vlinders (The House of the Butterflies). The House designs, manufactures and sells trendy and contemporary fashion and home accessories from residual textile, handmade by young women from Utrecht, that experience a distance to the labor market: “by working in The House of the Butterflies girls and women can grow from a small caterpillar to a colourful and beautiful butterfly”. The House wanted a logo that was feminine, trendy, colourful and included a smile, based on the colors pink and brown.

Together with the amazing Gilly Rochester and Daria Hlazato I was featured on the Creaure Mag blog with an illustration accompanying a grim poem by Ben Macnair.
The image of a crime scene immediately made me think of an infamous, brutal murder in the Netherlands. On the 2nd of november, 2004, filmmaker Theo van Gogh was murdered by an extremist, because of his controversial opinions. The illustration I made was inspired by one of the most well known pictures from this time. The ice bears are a reference to the snow in Bens poem and to the white suits, worn by the crime scene investigators.
The poem: Crime Scene Don’t follow the red snow, it is a warning, that around here are Grim fairy tales with an eighteen certificate.
