Without a doubt: an illustration made by Milou Trouwborst. I love all her work and I have a few prints hanging in my house. This one was made on a request and I am so, so happy with it. It illustrates our cat Bobby on our dining table.
Hmm… I like different kinds of genres, but the music which you will find on my playlist right now is Diggy Dex, Racoon and Suzan & Freek.
I am a huge fan of Tomas Saraceno. He is one of my top three favourite artists besides James Turrell and Ai Weiwei. Tomas is a master in linking art, life science and social sciences all together. One of my favourite pieces of art are his spiderwebs and his research community Arachnophilia.
Well, I walk a lot through my neighbourhood in these times, like everyone else, I think. One of my latest discoveries was a beautiful small Cherry Blossom park, which I had never noticed before!
Haha, honestly: nothing! I think I am the biggest snooze queen in the world, to the annoyance of my boyfriend.
Recently I made lamb shank soup and oh my god! So, if you would like to try it for yourself, I have added a picture of the recipe.
It’s difficult to pick just one project, because there’re so many great out there (cliché). But if I had to pick one which was recently made, I would choose the film How to be a Roll Model for Project Fearless. Directed by Al Lewis and created by W+K Amsterdam’s art director Emma Mällinen and copywriter Ane Santiago. This short aims to show the diversity of role models within the skating scene. The cast and crew of this film are largely composed of women and I believe the message to be a necessary one. We need more videos like this one and more role models for girls in male dominated fields/environments!
Not so much advice, but a quote which inspires and encourages me from time to time: ‘If your dreams don't scare you then they aren't big enough.’
Haha, get off Instagram, it destroys your creative mind.
Just by doing it! At CZAR I get a lot of opportunities to develop and challenge myself and I am very grateful for that.
My ideal collaboration is where people work together with different professional backgrounds. I have experienced, if you join forces, you can inspire and challenge each other even more.
Hosting the event 2020, creating her next decade, together with agency 180 Kingsday and Ladies, Wine and Design. What started as a simple idea, while drinking coffee with Ami Guest, grew into a mini festival to celebrate International Women’s Day. The event aimed to inspire and empower women, through a series of talks, workshops, screenings and a photography exhibition. We succeeded in uniting people from different creative backgrounds, with the ambition of building a strong and supportive community for women in the advertising industry and beyond.
