Our Story

From coincidentally being paired-up in school and ending up in the chancellor’s office, to working together as a team for more than five years, including a detour to study film at the School of Visual Arts in New York.

During the latter, we came to define our method of working into one single formula. A formula we believe in so much, that we got it immortalised on our homepage and on our bodies
(yes, bodies).

People often ask us how we make it work so well as a team and we always answer the same: It’s like a marriage without all the benefits, but at least we’re in it together.

S/O to Thomas van Driel on the left, a great all-round creative maverick
& the primary reason we didn’t starve to death in New York.
