After the big move and the merger with Pegamento in Zeist we have another fun announcement to make. Our colleague Leon has come back to join our team again! Leon joined Studio diip whilst finishing his Bachelor in Applied Computer Science at Hogeschool Utrecht. He works as a software developer where he applies his knowledge of computer vision, artificial intelligence and app development to develop smart software solutions.
Zeist – By merging Studio diip and Pegamento, a world of possibilities to innovate customer contact will arise. The team of Studio diip will immediately add 10 years of experience in the field of image recognition to the R&D team of Pegamento. With the acquisition of Studio diip, Pegamento will expand her existing Artificial Intelligence portfolio with image and video recognition. The smart software robots of Pegamento can now also process 2D and 3D images, besides language and speech.
Guust Hilte and Thomas de Wolf about the merger: “The past few years we have developed Studio diip towards being the expert in custom made image recognition. We’ve been expanding our technical skills in 2D and 3D image recognition, camera knowledge, software development and Artificial Intelligence. Now, it was time for the next step for our company to be able to operate on a bigger scale. With Pegamento we see a match in the same way of thinking and being open for new possibilities. Above all, we are a good match on the technical field and with the commercial experience of Pegamento we can focus more on working on even more exciting and relevant technical projects.”
“With the addition of the knowledge from Studio diip, we can fully equip our customer solutions with the intelligence of speech, hearing, reading and seeing. The most important skills used in customer contact.”, according to Serge Poppes CEO Pegamento. ‘We already interpreted written and spoken language for years, but now we can also detect and act on images and videos in real time. This is not only valuable in the customer contact, but also in the industry, safety and smart cities.
Bundling forces is a direct win for both parties. Studio diip can profit from Pegamento’s commercial and business development qualities and Pegamento can, in their turn bring the customer experience processes up to a next level.
As part of this new step we’ve also moved to the offices of Pegamento in Zeist! You’re welcome to come by and take a look at our new location.
Our new address:
Arnhemse Bovenweg 160
3708 AH Zeist
Because there are a lot of new projects coming up in the next few months, Studio diip is looking for more developers. Read the vacancy here (Dutch language only).
In the past half year Studio diip has been going through an appearance transformation. Because we work with all kinds of images, we also love to add them into our visual style. Whether it is inside our building or on the outside. When you have a first look at our website, it is important to us that we show you what we can do with images. For us, a few iconic images have a bigger meaning because we work with them everyday. In this post we will show you how we have been integrating some visual ideas into designs. We have made changes to our hallways, meeting rooms, signing and website and we are working hard to incorporate the same designs into our offers and invoices.
Wall paintings in the hall
Whenever someone enters our front door they will see two new beautiful big walls in style with Studio diip’s identity. The wall paintings have elements that give hints to Computer vision icons such as: cameras, video cameras, signals and the human eye. In the photo below you will see one of the wall paintings and details from the handmade wall paint that are showcased in our big hallway.

For everyone who hasn’t seen it: underneath our office we have a massive hallway that is used for meetings and testing prototypes. To incorporate the space with our vision, we have made several interior plans to brighten up the somewhat industrial area. The two rooms showcase projects such as the famous: ‘Fish on Wheels’ or Design Awards that we won throughout the years. The two rooms are also used for lunches and internal and external meetings. Our meeting rooms within the hallway aren’t forgotten in our design plan of course. That’s why we gave them the suitable names: ‘Hough’ and ‘Contour’. Two classical computer vision techniques that are essential in image recognition.
Interior design ‘Hough meeting room’
We think it is important to play around with signing. That’s why the meeting room doors are covered with stickers so that everyone knows not to step into the wrong meeting. We used a fish icon to show the ‘Contour’ technique that we use to detecting shapes. The fish shows the Studio diip colors. Did you know we can also detect animals? As ‘Hough’ is a line detection method it is often showcased on architectural images. We wanted to show the lines of Hough techniques on a skyline image.

We needed a sign to show people where we are. Therefor we designed a lightbox that can be turned on whenever it gets dark during winter or evening times. Our neighbour H. de Bruijn Relatiegeschenken b.v. produced the sign for us.

Iconic graphic design
The graphic style of the walls will also carry through on our website and in other company communications such as invoices and offers. Some recognizable icons will be the centre of the designs. We are working hard on our website to show who we are and what we are capable of doing with image recognition. Therefore we naturally like to use images throughout our entire communication.

In the future
We are working hard to implement our creative ideas into all of our communication. Maybe you will see that our invoices and offers will change over time. We also want to make a design for our office to refresh and re-order the interior as well. Let us know what you think!
