On October 15, our post pigeon was settled at Graffic Matters in Breda.

This festival is held every 2 years and during a monthly program where all their projects took place in or around the former Breda’s Museum, you could check out their exhibitions which researched the bounderies of graffic design. This years theme was: Shut Up, Speak Up.

Our Post pigeon project about awareness of freedom fitted very well in this interactive day with a lot of different kind of (graffic) activities.

Fluffy the Puffy for Villa Zebra Pop-Up

Category : news · No Comments · by Oct 17th, 2017

Villa Zebra organized during the autumn holiday a temporarily Pop-Up in Overschie. The theme of the workshops was the fantastic Shiver/Scary/Creepy.

Studio MAKY was asked to give a Fluffy the Puffy workshop, inspired by our fluffy Giant Spidey. It was a day full of colorful, long haired scary and hideous monsters dangling on a single string to scared big people around the corner :). The kids created a wonderful world with colored scary spiders, baby monsters, vampire hamsters and many more!
