Dearest reader,

in between commissions we always try to find the time to work on self initiated projects. We think it is important to formulate a personal vision – wether it be on image making, storytelling or other personal interests – that can influence our practice in interesting ways. Since last year we have been working on newspaper collages. Every day we cut up a newspaper and leave it to each other for a reply. This year we decided to start afresh with a new set of rules. Still cutting up newspapers, we now treat a different Belgian newspaper every month. Since a newspaper is made to fit as much content as possible we have decided to only use the residual spaces, the non-spaces, the out of focus, the in between. How do these influence the content?

Here you can see a few of our first results. We have been working on De Morgen and De Standaard for now. More coming up in a few months!

Warm greetings,
Ines & Lauren

P.S. Our personal cutting edge hero Henri Matisse is exhibiting his cut outs at the Tate in London, can’t wait to see!

Dears,

Join us tonight at Art Brussels and come watch this stand by Thorsten Brinkmann at Hopstreet Gallery!

Dear visitors,

It’s been a while since we’ve shown you our current activities! The past months we’ve been working on a nice variety of projects, including some more newspaper collages, a poetry app with Rozalie Hirs, an identity for architect Barbara Thevelein, a workshop at LUCA Brussels, the redesign of Hopstreet’s visual communication, a poster for a dance performance called dUb and developing a whole new identity for Belgian lingerie brand La fille d’O. Some of it is finished other projects are still in the work! Soon more about all that, for now some studio snapshots.

Take care,
Cox & Grusenmeyer

Dears,

While surfing the mighty waves of the internet you can come across the new website by ROYALTY OF EXILE — which we designed and programmed. Visit the website here — or read more about it here.

Dears,

The last few days we have been working on a flyer and poster for dUb – a dance performance choreographed by Karolien Verlinden. With 14 young dancers they are working on a show where sounds are dubbed and movements are play-backed. Rehearsals look so promising that we can’t wait to see the result! (more info here)

Sincerely yours,

Dearest fellow entrepreneurs,

lately we have been busy with a new project called ‘Bureau for Busyness’; a platform where the art of ‘busyness’ is investigated, lectured and instructed to beginning creatives under the motto ‘staying busy’. While this project got it’s first appearance on Integrated2013 the dutch magazine Hard//Hoofd asked us to clarify our vision in a written text as part of their busy week. Read some very useful tips and tricks on how to appear deceitfully busy here.

Unfortunately it is completely in dutch, but we will soon provide an english translation.

Enjoy reading and remember stay busy!

P.S.: “Houd uw telefoon krampachtig in de hand en vraag een collega of vriend om u gedurende de dag een aantal keer te bellen. Beantwoord deze gesprekken niet. U heeft er alle baat bij uw telefoon gewoon te laten rinkelen en zichtbaar geagiteerd door te lopen.”

Dears,

Come and join us this sunday at the La Fille d’O boutique where we will be celebrating 10 years of LFDO, friendship and love. Sneak peek into one of our posters for their music box: You make the rockin’ world go round!

Sincerely yours,
