Last summer the Bolder in Den Helder has been revealed. Beersnielsen assisted artist Marc Ruygrok with the design and the lettering. This huge maritime icon symbolizes the connection between Den Helder and its maritime history. The text lines represent Den helder’s history. Knowledge of the past helps to make people proud of their city. (Beersnielsen also worked on the Lichtkansenkaart in Den Helder, the Bolder fits seamlessly in this idea of city building)
After the revealing of the Bolder there was a party for a lot of stakeholders. Beersnielsen decorated this party with banners, huge shining 2d forms of the bolder and the lighting of course.
The Bolder found it’s place in the city center of Den Helder. We are now working on a lighting plan so the Bolder can shine at night as well.
