Design your own thesis cover!

Would you like to give just that extra touch to your thesis? Would you like to design something yourself? Or do you want to get some new energy by looking at your PhD in a creative way? Then subscribe for my workshop! Workshops are always on Sundays from 13h-16h. I look forward to helping you out with your design!


The next workshop will be in the city centre of Maastricht on the 1st of December. If you have a small group and you prefer another date, please contact me and we can figure something out. I can also come to you.

What will you get?

A wonderful afternoon full of inspiration. I will explain designing things to you like use of colour, composition and fonts. More importantly, we’ll work on your idea. A good thesis design starts with a brilliant idea. The rest will follow. You’ll go home with new ideas, inspiration and your own personal concept for your thesis cover, which you can finalize at home or with my help for a reduced prize when you need computer drawings. Note: it is not an Illustrator, Photoshop or Indesign course. Although of course I can give you tips as you like.

What does it cost?

Cost: €35, including material, location, tea and cake.

Where is it?

Workshops are at “Maak97“, which is a shop in the city centre of Maastricht (Heggenstraat 2a). I can also come to you.

Would you like to subscribe?

Please subscribe via the contact form on this website or via Please tell me the day that you would like to come and what the subject of your thesis is. I will send you a small home assignment to get warmed up for the workshop. Be quick because the amount of space is limited. I want to attend to everyone with great care so I keep the groups small.

Yes! Count me in!

PhD’s about the workshop:

“Really nice to work on this a whole afternoon and to be busy with my thesis in a different way. Doing something with my hands and away from the computer.”

“I’m glad I started with this in an early stage. It would have been a pity if I had dashed off my cover and now I took the time”. 

Workshop in a different location
