Hi A-Lab colleagues! My name is Bert van Blaere. I recently started as a freelance creative producer, after gaining extensive experience at Scrambled, a food content production company.
From the lab that I share with stylist Pieter van Loon and photographer Wessel de Groot, I set up shoots and projects. Whether it's a high-end fashion shoot, a TV documentary or developing mouthwatering recipe videos... I love taking on the creative challenge with both hands. Production often also comes down to making the impossible possible: do you need an oil bulb stand in the middle of summer for a project or a location for a bikini shoot in the heat of winter: I've got your back! Want to get acquainted and maybe come up with nefarious plans together? Feel free to drop by LabS03, this emigrated Belgian also makes good coffee and has a full fridge! Welcome!

My name is Eva Carp (without photo). I believe that effective communication starts with an open mind, a flexible attitude, and keen observations. This results in work where customers recognize themselves. By omitting noise and focusing on the essentials, my texts and designs get a sharp and clear character without losing their soul. Creating appropriate solutions is what inspires me every day. Copywriting includes (SEO) website texts, blog posts, newsletters, articles and interviews. Translations into both native English and Dutch. Graphic design includes visual identities, logos, banners, business cards, posters, brochures, book covers, tote bags, and stickers.
