New, but no newbies

LakmoesLab is the online school founded by information design agency Studio Lakmoes. Everything you learn from us is tried and tested in our daily design practice.
We have over 10 years of experience in information storytelling, organizing offline workshops and giving lectures all over the world.

And before becoming designers, we were scientists. The analytical approach we used in science and the experience with complex subject matters combined with our designer skills give us unique insights in the world of information sharing and design.

Meet your teachers

Marjolein Pijnappels, MSc

After obtaining her Master's degree in Biology Marjolein worked on the boundary of climate change science and policy, supporting knowledge dissemination and co-creation. In 2010 she founded information design agency Studio Lakmoes, responding to the need of knowledge intensive organisations to share data in a meaningful way.

As a teacher she uses all her creative force to inspire and push her students. She is an incorrigible visual thinker who sees connections everywhere and therefore talks rather quickly and a lot. 
You can count on her to think up creative concepts to visualise data and information. 

Barbara Wagensveld, PhD

After studying Biology, Barbara obtained her PhD examining what changes in the brain when children learn to read. Although she loved working as a scientist she felt her true passion lies in sharing complex (scientific) findings with the world. After a post-doc trajectory, she decided to switch and become a partner at Studio Lakmoes

As a teacher Barbara is involved, passionate and critical. She will keep asking you questions until everything is absolutely clear. 
She combines her experience from her scientific career with a keen eye for aesthetics and detail to help other scientists share their knowledge.

What our students say about us

During the course, the importance of a good preparatory process before you start designing infographics, became very clear. That's where it starts. And you save a lot of time if you get the start right. The course provided practical tools to shape that process. The fact that we worked on our own design was extra fun.

Danielle — marketing and communication

Thanks for the workshop. Afterwards, we got many positive reactions. My colleagues liked the teacher’s spontaneous and professional attitude.


Johannes — policy maker

I received many positive reactions from my colleagues so far. I hope we can follow up on it again, with a longer course.
