His lil' sister Vissie

Last month, a new fish store "Vissie" opened in Barendrecht. The Vissie concept sells all kinds of ready-made fish products and is following big brother Kippie, a similar concept but focused on chicken. For us a fun challenge to translate the two concepts into both the interior of the store and the visual identity of the new brand.

Different, not less

The editors of Nieuwsuur have recently made a tour of the largest corporate employers in the Netherlands. It appears that more than half of the companies foresee a decrease in the need for office space. After Covid, the expectation is that we will continue to work from home more often. Before Covid, employees visited the office for an average of four or five days. After the pandemic, this is anticipated to be about two to three days. The rest of the week employees work at home or, for example, at a client's location. The companies surveyed, including Capgemini Group, AEGON Netherlands, and consultancy firm Arcadis, expect a reduction in the demand for office space of 20% to 50% as a result.
