My English is CRAP too, I’ll correct this later.
And please keep in mind, this is still the first version of my plan. It’s still unclear for me what I would like to do in my future AND for my major project.




Many people think that Graphic Design is a stagnant art form/design, but I think its is much more than that. We can now make graphic design more interactive, let it move.
Video, screen typography, graphic motions, graphic design that moves, these are the things that I really am interested in.

One of my many objectives this year is to improve my After Effects and screen typography skills (for movies and screen). Improving my knowledge about motion graphics, title sequences. I would like to research the theoretical and practical things about visual communication in moving image. Short films – short motion graphic movies. I would like to develop my style in motion graphics and graphic design.

During my BA period in the Netherlands, I already worked a lot with live action. I love to use people in my films; I like to research how they act and behave. This year I would like to focus on computer stuff but I really don’t want to forget the live action movies.

My graduation project during the BA Grahic Design last year was about religion and deafness. For example, lots of Christian people says to me, because I’m deaf; ‘Oh poor you, God will help you.’ Like this; ‘The word DEAF looks like DEATH. It’s scary.’

There was a Christian who prayed for me once. He prayed that my ears will open up to find God. Then I could find my path to God. I was surprised; do christian people look at us at that way? Are we a bad thing?
Am I a punishment from God?


Weird, strange things are really my kind of stuff. Pushing the borders, like my graduation project. I don’t know how to describe it, but I’ll try it. – For example, I really think the TV program Geordie Shore and My Fat Gypsy Wedding are really interesting. They show really a different, an unseen world. Geordie Shore and the My Fat Gypsy Wedding are for me, really, a culture shock. It’s really so kitsch. I’ll come back to the word kitsch later.

Controversial, notorious things. Subjects that make people think. Make them think; ‘Is this good or is this bad?’ I don’t want to make people look away, but make them come closer.
Like, counterculture, it can be controversial but interesting at the same time. Anti-social people, with mullets, who smokes and drinks all the day. Living on the benefits. These are interesting things for me, because it’s an unseen, closed group. For example, I would like to know why they behave like this. Why did they choose for this way of life. People like usual, the known, things, I like to choose the different path from them. The opposite path.

(this one is my own work)


What is good design? What is bad design? When can we make and see the difference.

“… – the tongue-in-cheek kind of kitsch that takes a subversive delight in enjoying aspects of life that were previously upheld as the epitome of poor taste.’ Kitsch Deluxe (I lost the page numbers)


-“Defined in the The Concise Oxford Dictionary as “worthless pretentiousness in art”, kitsch is generally understood to mean cheap and tawdry and is associated with the plastic, the imitation, or, in modern American terminology, the “knock-off”. However, for a growing number of people the word is no longer pejorative. There is no dictionary that yet defines kitsch as a cultish modern trend that sees educated aesthetes shamelessly embracing pink-plastic flamingos, plaster poodles, or, indeed worthless pretentious art, but it has certainly undergone an informal redefinition among an emerging generation of kitsch lovers, for whom plastic is the new gold.

In this modern context, kitsch encapsulates the ironic “so-bad-it’s-good” sensibility, which rejoices in the shortcomings of low-budget B-list movies and low-brow art. As such it also represents a form of inverted snobbery. Kitsch film director John Waters once said, “In order to acquire bad taste, one must have very, very good taste.” However, for others bad taste doesn’t come into the equation: they are simply attracted to playful objects d’art, colourful mass-produces souvenirs, and vivid-themed décor. And then there are those for whom kitsch continues to represent the stereotypes of artificiality and vulgarity. In short, the world is loaded with contradictions and counter meanings, as complex, and as impossible to define, as taste itself. –Kitsch Deluxe (I lost the page numbers)

“Kitsch can be seen as a term to identifying and make a difference between low and high quality art. Kitsch is often identified as tasteless, ugly and bad. High quality art means good taste and low quality art means bad taste or kitsch. The term kitsch is often used for mass culture in general. Quality or quantity or lower of higher culture, that’s the point in kitsch. “ (The graphic design of Christianity, thesis, 2011, Marie van Driessche)
When is design good? When is design bad? Can we make a bad, kitsch design/motion graphic/film, which is good at the same time?

Humour in graphic design. I think humour and irony in graphic design is very important. How can we make people laugh and think at the same time?


Can I make a film that is kitsch and good at the same time?
Can I make a motion graphics, which means nothing and means something at the same time?
I whish to explore what kitsch is, and how we can push the borders of good – bad/kitsch design.
