Framed Portraits

Dutch talents portrayed in one minute

Framed Portraits is a varied collection of 23 short one minute films celebrating young talented creatives. Each film portrays the individual talent practice of a designer who has been supported by Creative Industries Fund NL talent development grant in 2017/2018 . The fund provides them the opportunity to enrich artistic and professional aspects of their practice to an optimum effect.

Creative Industries Fund NL is the Dutch cultural fund for architecture, design and digital culture, as well as every imaginable crossover.

Selection of 8 video portraits


The film portaits present talents across various disciplines from fashion design and graphic design to architecture and digital culture.

The blue frame defines the stage, the talents we asked to play within it showcasing their work. The frame acted as an uniforming restriction producing films yet so diverse.
