Being surrounded by mostly creatives and entrepreneurs. Daan together with Jeannot Keser decided to start a creative collective based on the idea of being able to create anything. As young designers, they use DesBoules DesBoules as their voice to the world.

Near the end of 2020, they worked on a collaboration with Vintage Vetements, a vintage clothing store at Strijp-s, the creative heart of Eindhoven. Vintage Vetements has since its opening in 2019 been a household name in the scene. The collaboration resulted in a beautiful and playful sign built to withstand all weather conditions.  

Ontwerpen voor een nieuwe wereld; Hoe maak ik impact?

“Designing for a new world; How do I have an impact?”


For a new Minor program, the HAN University of Applied Sciences asked Daan to make a promo film. He visited several entrepreneurs that have an impact and students with a vision of making an impact. He used their stories to describe how important it is as a design student to develop a vision of how you want to have an impact on the world around you.

Verbind; a project about selfreflection & -development

A project about self-reflection and -development resulted in the short film that sparked Daan’s love for filmmaking. He physically and metaphorically joins his strengths and passions to design and present a series of furniture items only using wood joinery.
