Leystede laat wereld van de toekomst zien.

|Sorry, Dutch only…|

Leystede is de school voor vmbo en de plek waar Bonaventuracollege, Visser ‘t Hooft Lyceum en Resonans samenwerken. Het gloednieuwe gebouw van Leystede, ingericht door Yield, is klimaatneutraal, duurzaam en dient als voorbeeld voor het vmbo, voor de leerlingen van de toekomst die met het praktijkonderwijs allerlei technieken en inzichten leren die bijdragen aan een duurzame toekomst. https://www.linkedin.com/…/leystede-laat-wereld-van-de… In dit artikel (via LinkedIn) meer over ons en de drie kunstwerken van ARTvertisements waarin geschiedenis, duurzaamheid en dromen met elkaar verbonden worden.

Thrilled with this aesthetic and informative artwork. I have commissioned ARTvertisements as well for in- as exterior projects.

Barbara & Niki of ARTvertisements were given the assignment to create a working environment which stimulates motivation and personal development, a positive attitude, peace of mind and offers perspective. The design implements the DNA of Werkse! and shows metaphors of work related activity, because Werkse! is an employment agency for people with poor job prospects. The grey office has been transformed into an inspiring space. The ladies are both fun and professional.

They are brilliant creators and fast thinkers with perfection in mind, searching for originality within a short timeframe. A solution is offered suiting the environment.

In 2016 I worked closely with Barbara & Niki, they were given the assignment to visualise a route and implement it in a tunnel. They worked with dedication and enthusiasm within the given scope and co-created with local companies and organisations as requested. Working with them created a lot of energy!

Barbara & Niki consulted us about the color usage for the new interior of the school, implementing color psychology. The artwork they created needed to show the international character of the school. They succeeded in both, the space looks larger, and there’s a positive vibe because of the used colors.

They love a challenge and do thorough investigation into history, application techniques and printing possibilities. The art created for Ibis Hotel, is designed to celebrate all that is Amsterdam. This digital collage brings together the city’s rich past and present. Embedded QR codes allow the viewer to delve in further and discover more about the city’s many museums and places of interest. As well the tables as the wall contains the artwork.

The regular meetings with Barbara & Niki of ARTvertisements were a pleasure, all our wishes were granted in the artwork. We are impressed by the creativity and professionality of both Barbara and Niki.
