Girls Love DJ’s

In 2016, I got an internship at Girls Love Dj’s. They hired me as a graphic designer. They wanted a couple of things; artwork, their logo redesigned, and we even talked about animation. My internship lasted about 6 months.

GLDJs Logo

Logo

GLDJs asked me to take a look at their logo, and try to put my own take on it. I was getting really into line art, but knew that the logo needed a bit more weight to it. I made a couple of examples for them to choose out of.

Promotional Artwork

They also wanted me to make some artwork that could be used for Spotify playlists. It was difficult at first to really get what they wanted, but in the end we got there.

Jacket Design

Jacket Design

This project was meant for promotional uses while on tour. A festival was coming up and they wanted me to design a jacket that people could wear while on stage or in the crowd. I originally made it in color, but we ended up going with just the color white.

This was an interesting experience since we were already with a team of creatives that all had their own opinion, and we all had to come to an agreement on the design. And when we came to an agreement, the company that printed the jackets came out and said that it would be best if we did it in one color. We picked the color white.

Right before I actually started my internship I was asked to make a Facebook cover for an event that was gonna be held in a clothing store in Amsterdam. I already made a drawing of the DJ, and they asked if I could use that one in the design for the event.

I made a couple of designs for them to choose out of, and there was also a second edition with the same concept, same design, but just different colors.

Animation Concept

Animation Concept

At some point, we started talking about using my artwork for the big screens on festivals. It had to be animated though. I’m not the best animator, but I wanted to try and animate a look and feel. Animation is extremely slow, mainly because I’m still an amateur in it, so the video is only a couple of seconds.
