So we thought up the  MonsterMotel, a quirky cross-over between a giant dollhouse, tamagoshi’s, sesamestreet and big brother. We arrived a week before the festival with a group of 25 creatives and a lot of material … Continue reading

What we like about festivals is not to just sit around and consume. We want to join in! A big festival like Lowlands is like a village, you can eat, drink, dance and consume whatever you like. But once in a while you get ideas on festivals, and you want to produce them immediately. This is what we provided at the Lowlands Festival: Rapid Proto Typing for the masses (or as we say in dutch: creatief met kurk, nou ja … Continue reading
