5. VDL (voor de leuk)
Meet Margot ten Bok, the artist behind the pseudonym "voor de leuk". The English translation would be "just for fun", and however modest she may portray herself, her poetry is inpeccably written.
Margot picked up her pen and notepad at the age of 9. Her writing repertoire is versatile and she writes about topics such as love, hangovers, or even friendship. She also enjoys adding more serious matters to her poetry, be it philosophical or social but always with a little lightness.
"I just write about things that cross my mind" is what she would say.
Margot's style is playful, witty but above all, honest. She has the ability to write about a mundane topic and make you laugh, or think. All this can be mirrored in the little poems she wrote for us about dads while growing up. She highlights all the lovable moments but also the fun that hey brought along. Who can't remember dad fixing your bike every week over and over?

BERNO X ELECTRIC CARP COLLECTION
Krebonson draws his inspiration from elements around him such as culture, music or street art. When it comes to designing, he likes old school cartoon characteristics, and using classic layout composition styles. Street art and graffiti are two fundamentals in Krebonson’s creative world and tries to incorporate them as much as he can in his designs.
This brand-new collection combines iconic and colorful features of street art while keeping an emphasis on quirky depictions about dads.
