As part of the Gorilla Collective (Herman van Bostelen, De Designpolitie and Lesley Moore) we have been making comments on news items for more than a decade; from Islamic State to Donald Trump, from Brexit to Fake News. The 100 best Gorilla columns have now been collected in the poster-sized book Gorilla for President, with personal selections by Erik Kessels, Stefan Sagmeister and Paula Scher.
Gorilla for President is designed by Gorilla, edited by Bob Witman, published by Lecturis, paper is generously sponsored by Antalis, translations by Billy Nolan.
In an ongoing strategy to involve younger generations, the National Opera & Ballet partnered with Lesley Moore to set up a new loyalty program for young adults (up to 35 years). ’My Muse & Me’ offers an inspirational program and reduced ticket prices. With 500+ members since the launch in October, the program has had a flying start.

We designed the identity for the Royal Academy of Art in The Hague as a playground for their students. Exciting to see it working out in practice. For the upcoming graduation show we worked with the talented alumna Leeza Pritychenko for the imagery.
Identity design by Lesley Moore, still and moving image by Leeza Pritychenko, printing by Drukkerij Thiele.
Dutch National Ballet just closed the season with New Moves, showcasing the choreographers of tomorrow. The image is part of a campaign series made together with Petrovsky & Ramone. This summer we will team up again to create the 2018/19 campaign for both opera and ballet.

Hotel & Student Home
Hotel Casa is part student home, part hotel. Every summer the students pack their stuff and make room for hotel guests. In the autumn a new generation of students return to Casa. An ever-flowing fountain of youth which was our starting point for their new identity.
Strategy (with Studio Spomenik), visual identity, web design (with Your Majesty) and art direction by Lesley Moore.
Centraal Museum’s identity is one of our most precious projects to date. Edwin Jacobs was the visionary director behind it. Before he left Centraal Museum to lead Dortmund U, we designed a goodbye gift to honour him.
