DE DON STUDIO

De Don Studio shows a wide variety of multi displinary work but focusses mostly on audio / visual experiences and motion graphics created by mixing analogue and digital techniques: “I tend to use reoccurring themes in my work that spark my interest. Subjects of my previous projects have involved themes like the human psyche –– involving the overlap of A.I. with the human psyche, digital culture, generational differences, urban subcultures, etc. I like working with digital tools and programmes, however I don’t shy away from involving analogue techniques into my work like silkscreening, analogue photography, bookbinding, and many more.”

‘De Don’ derives from my full name, Donna Rikhof, which is a nickname people often give me. The name especially stuck during my time at the university of Arts, where I graduated from the bachelor course Graphic Design in 2023.
