For the city Leeuwarden in the North of The Netherlands (my hometown) I created a series of animations, explainers and commercials.

Leeuwarden has became Cultural Capital of Europe in 2018. A huge happening with many events and millions of tourists visiting the city. For marketing purposes on television and internet, I proudly created several TV commercials, explainers and promo's in collaboration with the great people of the organisation of the event. On this page I made a selection of the many projects for Leeuwarden 2018.

The Story

Our era is changing. The world has grown and society is more diverse. It takes a great deal of courage, creativity and imagination to deal with those changes. Leeuwarden-Friesland tackles its Capital of Culture year by sticking its head above the parapet. By bringing about change in the province, country and Europe in order to go from a community to an open community.

By seeing the chances that appear and listening to new insights. By being flexible and adjusting without losing yourself.
