Studio for conceptual, social design and research

Timothy is a multi-disciplinary social designer, researcher and creative strategist based in Rotterdam who spent the last years working on visions and projects for near-future world building. In my design/art practice, I am exploring the intersection of speculative design, social design and design research.


He investigates our social and cultural mechanisms, where he questions normality and standardization through the norms of our social infrastructure and system rather than new functions. His works intend to invert what exists already and to inverse the infrastructure of norms that unfold in the notion underlying the rapid development of cultural transformation and hybridity beyond an assumed hierarchy, using narratives, exhibitions/workshops/lectures, and strategies/services to catalyze the social imagination, the collective imagination.

He also works as a freelance graphic designer focusing on visual identity(VI), branding and graphic design. He undertakes design work across a broad spectrum from two-dimensional graphics to spatial design such as exhibition and signage systems.
