Selfie zone safety trial results

Printing a selfie zone near the Rijksmuseaum in Amsterdam as part of a trial to see if it would encourage people to take selfies from a safe location on the sidewalk instead of a dangerous location in the middle of a busy bike path. The results were a 23% decline in the number of people who took selfies in the bike path as well as a 30% increase in the number of selfies being taken with many being uploaded to social media sites generating great PR for the city of Amsterdam

The circular economy is filled with possibilities. Turning waste into a valuable asset is the future. How we turned discarded beer bottles into a medium used to produce an outdoor marketing campaign.

The City of Amsterdam is experimenting with using natural-media techniques and the public space to engage with the public. Amsterdam is one of the first cities to officially allow the use of natural-media for their own communication purposes as long as the materials used to produce the prints are sustainable, high qualities standards of the city are met and the prints are removed after an agreed upon period of time. 

Decorating with sand

 

SandBoss sand printing works great for creating really nice looking messages. But it is also ideally suited to decoration whether that's a public space or a wedding. 


This print is +10 m2 and took me about 7 hours to complete and half an hour to clean away.

I used 9 kilos of dry sand-mix. 

SandBoss sand prints dry hard and adhere to the surface. The non-toxic water based binders also make these prints easy to remove.
