My Work Samples
Student housing-concept in Amsterdam
I worked on a unique student housing-concept, together with a fellow experience designer. Within experiential design it is always a challenge in breaking down whatever the world feels and is led by, into understandable buildingstones with whic they are again reassembled. Not analysing the shit out of beauty ofcourse. But understanding how our experiences are formed an modelled, helps you to see what otherwise might be taken for granted.
Within the development of the housingg concept, I was fortunate enough to lead the young team through the phases of ideation, creation, breaking it down and glueing it togehter again.
Some of my professional profiles
Tour-production and trainingmanuals for Europ. Cityguide companies
I design and produce concepts that…
facilitate forms of networked coproductions, over different cities and even countries, by means of a collaborative organisational structure.
With project-integration you literally get all the good stuff:
- Local presence;
-bA poject-based organisation, without losing any of your brand image;
- International connections that actually mean something,
- Training manuals and practical production processes;
- Full-on Tourguide training and practical tourguiding;
- Tour production techniques;
A huge knowledgebase and local contacts that last longer than your average barterdeal for a free beer in a pubcrawl!
Knowledgebuilding- and creation can best be conducted within a more substantial concept, which will benefit your services, products ands relations hugely.
Conducting guided tours in multiple European cities is far more complicated than it might sound. Although deploying (more or less) local guides and (ex)travellers, it does not give you the local exposure and familiarity you need, in order to keep business up and running in the long run.
Companies like these, often lack a local grounding. Without having to become part of the local establishment, it is highly recommended you root yourself within the local community, in order to:
Facilitate learning-environments for your tourguides
Grow a trustworthy reputation within the local community of stakeholders
Become a full and professional local project-based organisation.
The concepts require implementation on locations and cities and a unified structure of tours-production, in which knowledge creation takes place through practical interaction and informal learning, making it accessable to new and even temporary tourguides and several stronger local leadership-roles. They create “communities of practice.”
