MAKE MORE MISTAKES
No one likes to fail or make mistakes; we do our best to avoid it at all costs. But did you know failures can actually contribute to a better work environment and spur creativity? Failure expert Remko van Drift tells us how in his book Fouten Maken Moed, published by Anderz. As a friend of Roquefort, Remko asked us to create the design for his book.
So we did, surprisingly without any mistakes!
Laura and Bianca, Roquefort, I’m a fan! We’ve been working together since 2007; they designed all my websites and visual identities, as well as merchandise like pens, notebooks, and stickers. And of course, they designed my two books. The design for this second book, Fouten maken moed, like all the other designs, is creative, inventive, and inspirational. Laura and Bianca are a dynamic duo. I don’t know how they work, or who does what in the design process (and I don’t want to know, because I’d like to believe it’s a magical formula) but they manage they create something beautiful every time. They always know how to turn my ideas and wishes into something far beyond anything I could’ve imagined. It’s almost a shame, really, how perfect they are;) )
In addition to the book, we also created a website. Much like the book, the website is filled with bad jokes, fun illustrations and interesting facts. Check www.foutenmakenmoet.ml.
