Pidgins is Mark Prinsen and Mark Prinsen is Pidgins.
Pidgins is the working name of me, Mark Prinsen. I was born in 1987 and am living and working in Rotterdam since 2005. I attended the Grafisch Lyceum Rotterdam (class of 2007) and Willem De Kooning Academy (class of 2011).
A Pidgin is a language that neither one nor the other participant in a conversation speaks, but rather the common idiom of words and symbols both understand. Graphic design is that language.
Since september of 2011 Pidgins is working closely together with Turbo Turbo | Rotterdamse Filmmakers (www.turboturbo.nl). At Turbo Turbo, Pidgins is in charge of art direction and production design.
