We’re a small Amsterdam based design studio that likes to invent and build!
Since graduating from the Gerrit Rietveld Academy in 2008 I’ve been combining design and technology.
Being able to act as a designer as well as a ‘builder’ has proved to be quite useful and has allowed me to develop many creative solutions and systems in both commissioned projects and self initiated projects.
The purpose of the archive is to play a role in a creative process, by using images as reference material in a design process, or by triggering new ideas. It enters the world of ideation (idea generation), and allows you to document the thoughts and ideas you get while browsing through your archive, and seeing interesting connections between images. The real magic happens in our brain, and Beeld/Bank allows you to document that magic for future use.
After positive responses from fellow designers I’ve decided to give others the possibility to use Beeld/Bank as well, it is currently being tested by various designers and artists. On the roadmap is a feature to be able to work collaboratively.
