Goodbye

One of the things that keeps happening is those goodbye moments when interns are leaving. After months of hard work they are like a part of the team. So it’s often with a double emotion that we say farewell. On one side ‘hate to see them go’ on the other side ‘curious how their careers will turn out.’ they come from far these days. We had interns from: France, England, Russia, Poland, Japan, Bulgaria, Italy, Canada, Singapore, Denmark, United States, Brazil not to forget the many Dutch off course. And the list keeps on growing like a global family.  It keeps us dynamic. They come and learn from us as much as we learn from them. It’s a big privilege to work with them and be able to play a little role in their development as designers. Maybe that’s why the barbeque has become like a goodbye ritual at our studio. If the weather is good off course.
