It's winter and I'm still obsessed with skatevideos. Some endless surfing inspired by Karl Berglind. Gram.
I was selected to speak at this year's antenna conference during Dutch Design Week in Eindhoven. Together with 19 of the world’s best design graduates I was on stage to talk about current topics and my work. Accompanied by an exhibition at Klokgebouw.
"Antenna is a platform for young, international design talent, initiated by Design Indaba and Dutch Design Week. The very best of a next generation that will have a positive impact on the world with new insights, clear ideals and strong ambition. No superficial products or big names, but people searching for answers to global challenges. Antenna gives them a voice and the chance to change the world."
It was an absolute blast and I'm looking forward to share more of this experience soon. I really enjoyed being on stage and spending time with all the antennas who became one big family for me.
I am very happy to announce that as of beginning of August I started working at moodley as a part of their branding office.
We have previously been working together on projects and I was a part of their interaction office for a short time earlier this year. It was basically just a matter of time until we would join forces.
I am looking forward to a great future together.

In case you missed it or if you like to watch it once more:
I’ve always been into hand drawn animated loops. This is also why I decided to do it for my Master’s thesis. But recently my fascination for them has grown even more. I’ll post more of them on my Instagram as well as work in progress. The finished loops go up on my farts page. Check them out.
I wish I could do loops full-time.
An ode to beautiful Portugal. Shot on Polaroid 600 bw film. Shooting on Polaroid feels more like painting than photography to me. Which makes each photo invaluable and very special. A perfect way to memorise my life in Portugal. More coming soon. For live updates @christianleban
After a really long time I finally got it all together. Being not completely satisfied after finishing my Master's thesis I decided to revisit the project and team up with David Stockinger for a new sound experience to accompany my shortfilm.
Xièxie – Thanks!
After a Winter of rad sessions and finding my love for skating miniramps the time has come. Wholes, cracks and broken planks. Here are some impressions from an earlier session and the painting of the ramp. R.I.P.
