Philipsdorp 2.0   2015

The Philipsdorp of the 20’s was a district flourishing with the liveliness of the nearby football stadium. A new generation of inhabitants mentions that it’s a neighbourhood of anonymity and seemingly no shared interests.


In the stadium, week by week, two teams and two parties of fans show how one interest can unite people. What happens when the neighbourhood can be as proud of Philipsdorp as football fans are of PSV?


We created architectural elements and a font based on the original font used the founding pillars of Philipsdorp and we unified their street signs and house numbers.
