COHORS is a team effort. But there’s no such thing as a coach or a captain. The individual product (and the design it is based on) determines the line-up and the strategy. In other words: for every new product the COHORS team re-invents itself. Of course COHORS does have steady basis, so let us introduce to you…
Founder & Curator
“People around tell me to put myself on the foreground, but I prefer to empower and support from the background; let people thrive and excel under the most perfect circumstances. As an art historian and curator I was educated to be an advocate for the arts; something I have taken very serious and approached from many angles in the International art scene. COHORS was molded around the experiences I had and the research I did in this field. Especially as a tutor, seeing so many young talented professionals looking for a place where they can freely create and develop. I sincerely hope you can feel the vibrant energy and devotion we all put in this company.”
Graphic designer & Art director
Rianne ‘Poster’ Petter is a centipede in her field. There’s hardly any aspect of graphic design she doesn’t like to sink her teeth into. But when you say “poster” or “wall art” a broad smile appears on her face and a thousand radars start spinning in her head. The results are always undeniably stunning. She loves working in a team and brings sparkles and stars to any brainstorm session or meeting. Rianne studied at Willem de Kooning Academy in Rotterdam and has been working independently since 2002 as a designer and art director.
Marian is just plainly very good at what she does. She oversees the whole playing field and aims for what she knows is right. What many people don’t know is that – next to studying Communication and Design Management – she studied Modern Japanese Studies, which has clearly influenced her view on esthetics. But also her view on life. With her calmness and charm she leads where she knows we need to be, and that’s why COHORS is proud to have her on board.
Paul van Mieghem
I told COHORS I’m a writer. COHORS believed me. Then they asked me to write about them.
“Tell me who you are”, I said.
They answered: “We don’t know.”
“You don’t know who you are?”
“Not really. Who do you think we are?”
I paused to think. “I’m not sure.”
“You don’t have to be.”
On that condition, I got started.
That’s how I became their in-house writer.
