founding editor Nancy Berendsen, creative editor Rosanne Loffeld and designer Rosa Mathijssen_______.

Nancy Berendsen

If Nancy was a flower, she would choose to be statice. Elegant and racy. Cute with bizarre shapes. Because that’s what Nancy loves: aesthetics, strong typography and sophisticated illustrations________.

Nancy is the founding editor of The Green Gallery. She’s bursting with inspiration, dreams up creative concepts and previously worked as editor of Holland Herald and Dutch lifestyle magazines, amongst other things.

Rosanne Loffeld

Rosanne loves the delicate blue of delphiniums, she sees the beauty and purity in all things and loves things that are ‘a bit different’. Authenticity and goodness appeals to her, and she has a passion for styling, fashion and vintage finds__________.

Rosanne is co-conceptor and creative editor of The Green Gallery. She has worked on a number of pilot issues for national magazines, and her roles have included being managing editor at Textilia.

Marc Eijsackers

Loves tradition: large-flowered roses, a good glass of Burgundy and classic British humour. Only his taste in music deviates from this - progressive metal. Dream Theater: now that’s a band_________________.

In his role as general manager, Marc develops the strategy to make flowers and plants top of mind with European consumers. He inspires an international team and gives them the room to excel. He is delighted when that happens.

André de Waard

His favourite flower is the Strelitzia, better known as the bird of paradise flower. That’s fitting, since they both love warm places. The flower symbolises freedom - the feeling that André enjoys when he opens the throttle on his Ducati________.

Motorbikes. Messing around in a vegetable garden. Marketing and media. Andre has a passion for those four M’s. As an online marketeer he is involved with the latter two every day, particularly the digital form.

Esther de Waard

Dreams of a farm, orchards and cattle. Together with the big loves of her life. Favourite flower: the flaming ball of fire, Gloriosa. A botanical maverick which emerges from a tuber into a spectacular climber and constantly strives to get higher_____.

Something Esther tries to do every day in her role as brand manager. Bringing together people and brands, where she makes every effort to establish long-term relationships where the love is 100% mutual.

Rosa Mathijssen

Is dazzled by wild flowers and hollyhocks, and goes weak at the knees over ranunculus and anemones. Other big loves: her old sea dog, typography, magazines, her two cats Vos and Duif and a cheeseboard______.

Rosa is the designer for The Green Gallery and has been running her own studio for seven years. She graduated with honours from Utrecht School of Arts with a slim volume about her other great love: taxidermy.

Tessa Triesscheijn

The Teddy sunflower, callicarpa, dahlias, carnations, ranunculus or peonies - this Libran just can’t choose. Luckily she doesn’t have to. She likes to have a mixture of colourful flowers in her eclectic home, which she shares with a colourful crowd: four fabulous lodgers and a rock-star baby daughter_______.

Tessa is the conversation manager. She creates and curates content about flowers and plants. She can’t choose between these two either. Luckily she doesn’t have to.

Edwin van der Horst en Joost Moerenburg

They really enjoy fields full of narcissi. With their bright trumpets they announce the start of something new. That’s why the narcissus is the symbol of their start-up 'Digitale Publicatie Makers'_____________.

Edwin and Joost are responsible for the high-end web design on The Green Gallery. They like speed, user-friendliness and interactivity and particularly like to add experience.

Call for Action

Steven Heijtel (software architect), Kirsten Meeuwis (front-end engineer), Mariken Spiekerman (project manager), Andrea Vos (interaction designer)_______.

“We have been delighted to be working for the Flower Council of Holland since 2011 on websites and campaigns, and now also on The Green Gallery. Our passion is to depict emotion of flowers and plants online.”

The Flower Council of Holland promotes flowers and plants to consumers in a number of European countries. In the United Kingdom this is carried out through the platforms Funnyhowflowersdothat.co.uk and Thejoyofplants.co.uk_______.

New online magazine.

Many years ago, when Alexey Brodovitch was still art director at Harper’s Bazaar, he told the then young, up-and-coming photographer Richard Avedon: 'Astonish me'. We think that’s the best advice ever. We have borne these words of wisdom in mind while creating the new online magazine The Green Gallery, with which we celebrate the beauty of flowers and plants.

The magazine has been produced in collaboration with many creative spirits. Industry people like photographers from Vogue, W Magazine and Kinfolk, stylists from Elle Deco, and leading and emerging artists and bloggers who are shaping the current zeitgeist, international lovers of flowers and plants, and in this first issue, the flower is their source of inspiration. They introduce it into the worlds of food, fashion, art, design and interiors. The end result is text, image and audio about floral couture, contemporary interpretations of old masters, sensual floral dishes, interviews with obsessives and forgotten flowers that we will never forget again after this issue.

We hope to astonish you, stimulate you, delight you, entertain you, and move you to silent amazement. Let’s celebrate the beauty of nature.
