Royal Honours for my work with Droog!

On April 26th, I was pleasantly surprised with the Dutch Royal Honours. In a special ceremony in the Nieuwe Kerk in Amsterdam, I received the insignia for “Officer of the Order of Orange-Nassau” (Officier van de Orde van Oranje-Nassau) from the Amsterdam mayor. The Royal Honours are awarded to people who have made a personal effort for the Dutch society. Gijs Bakker and I received the Honours for our work with Droog, with which Dutch design has become internationally significant and accessible to a broad audience.
