“The medium is not a fixed vessel for the message, but an intertwined part of it”

So, hi, my name is Bobbie. At the moment, I’m in my third year studying Graphic Design at the Willem de Kooning Academy in Rotterdam, the Netherlands. However, right now, I’m on a period abroad, studying Graphic Design & Art Direction, with a specialisation in Visual Design at Nuova Accademia di Belle Arti in Milan, Italy.

Most of my projects are about stereotypes and the way we position ourselves among others. I approach design in a systematical way with a focus on the relation between image and type and have worked on projects varying from short films to visual research, creative writing, editorial design, photography, visual identities and type. I believe the medium is not a fixed vessel for the message, but an intertwined part of it. However, my main interest lays with printed matter.

Currently, I’m really excited to explore hybrid publishing. Additionally, I would like to further experiment with the relation between medium and message and research how new mediums and technologies are changing the way we communicate.
