ABN AMRO

Designing for the future, that is what Dutch Design Week is all about. A mission that ABN AMRO, as the proud main sponsor of the event, supports 100%.

As an enterprising bank we recognise the opportunities that ambition, partnerships, and innovation present and are enthusiastic about linking up with the design world, an important driver of the Dutch economy. We organise the Driving Dutch Design programme for motivated, talented and driven designers. A series of masterclasses that lasts ten months, in which we help designers navigate the world of business. The campaign titled ‘Echte drive is niet te stoppen’ (real drive cannot be stopped) is an ode to these designers of the future.

Driving Dutch Design: Bouke Bruins

Driving Dutch Design (DDD) helps young designers on the road to becoming real entrepreneurs. This year, Bouke Bruins is one these ‘drivers’. He'll be presenting his work together with the rest of his class in the Klokgebouw during the Dutch Design Week in Eindhoven, which is taking place from 20 to 28 October. The self-proclaimed 'Boyscout Designer’ uses public spaces as a canvas and tells us about growing up as a designing entrepreneur. Read the full interview with Bouke in the online DDW Magazine.

Driving Dutch Design: Mieke van den Hout

She'll be presenting her work together with the rest of her class in the Klokgebouw during the Dutch Design Week in Eindhoven which is taking place from 20 to 28 October. “Sometimes people think that the only reason that I'm a designer is because it's fun, that I'm just doing arts & crafts all day. But nothing could be further from the truth. It's serious, hard work.” Read the full interview with Mieke in the online DDW Magazine!

Driving Dutch Design: Staalslagerij
