Introducing The Lab

As an important part of vdwoerd we will frequently post our creative coding experiments on our homepage and on The Lab – things that can be implemented in future projects. We love to play with code, data, form and sound, and like to share this. Please stay tuned.

Homepage: The Shredder – only on desktop: drag your own image into the frame (jpg or png), compose with dragging the mouse, push te spacebar to download your composition.

Time to setup our new website

Thanks to the break that social distancing is giving us, we found time to develop our new website. Six years have passed since the last edits on and a lot has happened during this time, as you can see in our catalogue.
Since the talented Rein van der Woerd (1997) is joining we changed our name to vdwoerd2, with creative coding and interaction design as additional disciplines. We both love to adopt new skills and look for new dimensions to create contemporary and meaningful form with impact, for all platforms.
We hope this global crisis will pass soon and in the mean time we serve clients in the best way we can to get through this and beyond.

A font based on Reaction Diffusion

The final outcome of my research into Reaction Diffusion for the course Designing Programmes at ArtEZ. I started out with the surprising Photoshop method of Reaction Diffusion: Gaussian Blur, Sharpen and High Pass filters, repeated over and over. I then discovered that OPENRNDR’s EdgesWork filter can achieve similar effects. I applied this to a typeface, vectorised it and converted it into a proper font using Fontself for Illustrator.
