This website contains a selection of work created by Studio Bas Koopmans since 2004*. Although parts of the site claim to show ‘everything’, this is clearly ment as all the content on the site, rather then everything once made by the studio. Obviously.
With no deliberate field of focus, the studio finds itself creating a steady stream of identity-driven work that lives on the intersection of contemporary culture and commerce. Within this proces the goal is to create creative directions that go hand in hand with graphic design and art direction.
If you would like to chat about hobbies, nerdy tendencies, why I’m partner at Unfair or just pop in for coffee with stroopwafels, please get in touch.

The studio used to work under the moniker ‘Baster’, based on the trend for bastardising one’s name. The name had nothing to do with the Turkey Baster or the Namibian ethnic group that descended from European settlers and indigenous African women.
