Students at St. Joost receive last minute help in writing their thesis

To complete their study graphic design, master students at art academy St. Joost (Breda, The Netherlands) write a thesis. During the course year 2009-2010, the guidance for this part of their study had not been optimal. St. Joost decided on a last ‘push’ and hired Bakker. Thanks to his intensive guidance most of the students were able to finish their thesis in just three weeks.
