Hello! My name is Leif,image

Recently graduated from the Design Academy Eindhoven, I am actively developing my practice in the field of participatory design

to learn more about how to give expression to the drives of people and places.

The way I work is transmedia-based, collaborative and involves research through design.


As a Co-founder of the Volunteers design collab., I am currently working on the social food experience Bricknic,

designing new cooking-ware with Roemertopf

and developing a creative strategy for the open source seeds program together with Hivos.

Next to that I explore the medium of audio-materialisation for the placemaking-method Vocorama.

To check out how things are going with those projects you can visit my blog: bude or follow me on instagram.
