Heer & Meester

2016  FourOne.Media, director Pollo de Pimentel

Planet X FX, in collaboration with Donald Roos, designed the leader for the second season of the Dutch television series 'Heer & Meester' (EN: 'Lord & Master').

In the series we follow the wealthy and charismatic gentleman Valentijn Bentinck who fills his days helping the police solve cases. Together with Leo, a butler in the chique hotel where he lives, the charming Valentijn manages to save himself time and again from the most impossible situations and solve crimes. Abandoned at a Catholic boarding school as an infant, the mystery of his past runs like a thread through the series.

With Valentijn as a kind of Dutch James Bond, Heer & Meester is a clear reference to series from the fifties and sixties such as The Saint and The Persuaders - with ample tongue-in-cheek. For the design of the leader we let us be inspired by the typical design of those times, and we introduce Valentijn's character through a graphic elaboration of a number of iconic elements from his past and present. A good example are the backgammon inspired elements, returning several times.

The series aired on Omroep Max on Thursday, January 28th, 2016 (10 episodes). The leader can be viewed here.

In reference to his past, a silhouette of Valentijn appears multiple times between the arches of a convent's corridors.
