Last edition of “Transmissie” was held at Edhv HQ, friday 25th of August. About sixty guests were here to view two presentations. The first was a presentation about ‘Het Marcus Mysterie’ by the director of the play. The second presentation was our own project “Etropolis.” Two interesting presentations. The atmosphere was nice and open. Also it was good to see our office transformed in a kind of conference/exhibition setting.

Old buildings, new ideas. Together with a group of artists and designers we painted 6 full days under blistering sun conditions. We did a concept for a building site fence.
The first part was the background graphic which defied the perception of perspective in some parts. It also reacted to the surroundings in size and colour.
For the second part the artists and designers added a layer in which they reacted on the provided background. This resulted in a giant collage of different contemporary styles.

And yet another edition of our freelance meetings. If you were there, thanks for coming. If you weren’t there you’re probably not one of our freelancers or you had a really good reason not to be there. As you can see even Tattoo Greg was showing his portfolio to Daan.

This is the first part of an exhibition about ideas concerning the ‘Blue carpet’. The old Philips area in the city. This particular piece by Remco van de Craats is based on streetlevel communication. It shows the interpretation of three different people that walk around a square in Eindhoven. The images are like street level micromarketing. Stickers, tags and car brands. These items are defining the identities of the streets by constantly sending a message. It depends on the receiver what to make of them.
“I took pictures of all the little items I encountered when I was walking around the square. I used PhotoStitch, which is a program for connecting images to panoramas, to connect the images. This gives unexpected results and in my opinion reflects the randomness of walking in the streets”.

These are some of the objects we created on our Milan expedition. We asked several visitors from the furniture design fair to describe their most loved or hated objects. Based on those description we tried to recreate the objects with materials at hand.
