Stop Rewind is the identity for personal work of Berthjan. While looking for a way to blend work, personal life and his love for graphic design he started photographing everyday objects that have personal meaning, are locally connected and have a sense of narrative. These images are the foundation of the graphics he makes. Creating an ongoing abstract journal where he likes to reflect (stop), look back (rewind) and bring some of the past into the present, giving his work a nostalgic touch.
In 2022 he started Project Play. In 2019 his son was born and seeing him play spontaneous got him interested again in the idea of effortless play. He uses his toys and creations as part of his work. His playfulnes providing a frame to play digital art.
