motion design









I started in 1996 as digital image manipulator
for (analogue) photographers. The still image turned into a moving image sequence and editing, motion graphics and animation were added to the mix.

In 2002 Leon van Rooij, Erik-Jan Maalderink and myself formed LADDS - the organisation of imagination. We worked for clients like Interpolis, Oranjewoud, Agio, Philips, gemeente Tilburg, Haribo, Grontmij, but also created lots of independent art, VJ performances and videomapping-events.

Until 2011 we explored this world of digital animation & arts on many levels. After that it was time to go our seperate ways. Since then i'm focussed more on capturing reality, but motion design and animation is always a big part of it.
