International Dot Day is a global celebration of thousands of people around the world joins together in a celebration of creativity, courage and collaboration. The story began on 15th September 2009, when Teacher Terry Shay brought Peter H. Reynold’s book “The Dot” into his classroom to share it’s story with the children. Not knowing that it would move so many people, that it grew out to a international celebration.
The Dot is a beautiful story of a caring teacher who dares a student, who doubted her ability to be creative, to trust in herself. The teacher asked her to be brave enough to “make her mark”. It all begins with a simple dot on a piece of paper what develops into a journey of self-discovery and sharing. The dot is now a symbol of inspiration for children and adults around the world to do the same. The story pictures an image in order to reach people’s hearts.
We think the dot moves the world to a better place. Sometimes all that people need is a spark or cheer to be happy and do great things. The message of this story can touch people’s soul and emotion. We are definitely touched, moved, by the story of the dot. What about you?
Believe in yourself and make your mark today! Use all your social media to share the magic: #DotDay, #Makeyourmark.
This beautiful short film uses the animations of the book to tell the touching story.
Welcome to our world.
The transition that we have worked on for over nine months, is out in the open. Now we are entering the next stage. Today, Deepeei film productions is transformed into: DUTCH PICTURE INDUSTRY. It is big step and we will have to get used to it ourselves also.
You might wonder why, this decision to change the name and create a new visual identity?
Our experience tells us, that WE people have a deformation in our brain and we are unable in processing four ‘e’s in one word. For most of us it’s too difficult to handle. Our name was so tricky, so Deepeei has been misrepresented in the press, many times. Even our national press agency, the ANP had trouble in writing Deepeei right. After ten years messing around with ‘e’s, and pronouncing our name in the right way, we thought it was time to change.
It’s time for progress. If you see the name written, you might notice that in fact it is still the same name. (DPI) So the change is less radical then it seems at first sight. And our mission to INSPIRE and MOTIVATE is still, running through everything we give birth to.
Stories and the WHY
This wonderful world is full of stories. It is our challenge to inspire our viewers with compelling, and unique story lines. But why should a client choose for DUTCH PICTURE INDUSTRY. What is our WHY? In search for our WHY together with conceptual designer Mark Kuiper we discussed this in every little step. If you search the Internet you directly see that the first link is of Simon Sinek’s book, ‘It all start with a Why’ and so do we. Everything that we touch comes from our core, from what we believe in, from the inside of every fibre. We love what we do and that is why we are good in what we do.
DUTCH PICTURE INDUSTRY is curious about that one eccentric dash.
The new corporate design, made by Mark, shows how the mission, philosophy and values shape Dutch Picture Industry. We are driven by a philosophy centred on innovation and encapsulating in our mission statement “to inspire and motivate”. In the development of the new corporate identity was a stencilled letter an important source of inspiration. Stencils are characteristic and exude adventure, features we identify. The diversity of colours strengthens the ties with the unique images and even more importantly nature.
We are VERY enthusiastic about our new name and brand identity. Well, what do you think?
