Project: Een reis om de wereld in 18 verhalen

Partners: Vamos Bien

Disciplines: Graphic Design, Book Design, Direction, Camera Operator, Video Editing, Motion Graphics

Year: 2014

Een reis om de wereld in achttien verhalen is a bundle of carefully curated short stories by 18 Master students of Social and Cultural Anthropology about their experiences doing field research abroad. The book gives insight to their findings in a snappy and richly illustrated form, ‘magaziiiny’ style. It was published by Vamos Bien in 2014. A fresh foundation supporting anthropologists to put their research into practice.


Creating more public awareness on the topic is also part of the mission of Vamos Bien, so we were invited to make a book telling the unexpected and exciting stories of these students. An attractive and lasting form of communication, documenting a life changing experience to most of these engaged youngsters. We also made it available as free digital download on



First of all we made selection of students with interesting stories. Then we collected heaps of content from them and edited texts and images. Our visual concept for the book basically was to go heavy on visuals, creating a magazine like look and feel. The graphic design, dtp and typography of this 140 page book were an exciting journey for us as well. Last but not least came the conception of the cover and title for the book, a not so foggy reference to its contents.
