Olmoost [-almost /ˈɔːlməʊst/, pronounced with a heavy Dutch accent]

Olmoost is Merike van de Vijver. I am a Dutch animator and designer living and working in England. Olmoost makes bespoke designs and has a strong preference for working in multiples, where every individual frame or object is still unique.  A tiny studio at home or a larger animation production studio in Manchester both inspire me to create warmth and life from still puppets, paper or felt. 

On this website you can view examples of a diverse range of made to order designs by Olmoost in felt, paper and wood. You can also click through some animations or check out the links at the bottom of the page for the more social (media) Olmoost. The blog 'cabinet of curiosities' will show you a selection of everyday posted images that have been an inspiration.
