Budget Concepts was founded by Laut and Twien in 2010.
Our love for plotting and devising remarkable concepts started with the ’Dit is Dit’ art collective (check out ditisdit.com).
At Budget Concepts we research the conditions in which good ideas arise. We conceptualize, facilitate brainstorm sessions, realize workshops and masterclasses, participate in think tanks, give advice on creative matters and more.
For more information take a look at what we offer or contact us.

Our love for plotting and devising remarkable ideas for all sorts of uses has driven us in doing a range of diverse activities. A few of the things we can offer:
- white label
Besides these we are busy with some other projects such as: homevideos.
One of our main goals is to establish up to date services and methods. Therefore the research department of our company is of great importance.
The core behind getting new ideas is a good research, customized for your situation and so next to our internal search we offer a research for finding the specific idea generating method for your situation
Brainstorming is a popular tool that helps you generate creative solutions to a problem.
Our technique contains a start analysis which questions the main subject within your specific situation.
In our sessions we use well known techniques as well as and combined with our own twists on divergent thinking.
We offer brainstorm session for small groups (2 to 6 persons) and customized for specific situations. All this to find the ideas you might not know you had.
We offer custom made workshops in the line of creative thinking. A great deal of known, recognized techniques as wel as some more personal experimental techniques are brought forward in a playful session. Association, imagination, intuition, lateral thinking are just some of the ways of thinking that are explored.
In our masterclasses you can get a special lecture including a workshop about creative thinking and generating ideas, which will be brought to a next level as it comes to devising new ideas. The result: a unique experience and a special show off on your personal résumé.
Next to our analysis on the subject we offer our expertise to generate new ideas and make your ideas more vivid to come to the right solutions.
Our expertise is also for hire in case you are in need for some extra influences concerning brainstorms, workshops and related matters devising new ideas such as think tanks.
A white label product or service is a product or service (co-)produced by us that you (re)brand to make it appear as if you made it. We offer this service to let you establish your design or idea without anyone knowing we helped you out.
Next to our professional activities we also do projects from a more idealistic point of view.
we make sauna
This is a project co-initiated by one of us. It is actually a sauna and a car (and a barbecue) in one. It was first open for public at Vrijhaven in Maakhaven, The Hague and currently at the square of our studio.
For images and such take a look at wemakesauna.tumblr.com.
The homevideotheek is an initiative of Budget Concepts and Nico Feragnoli and established before YouTube existed. The homevideotheek is a collection of found footage.
More about this on homevideotheek.tk.
dit is dit
We are part of the art collective ’Dit is Dit’ (’This is This’) initiating and realizing projects and actions of a divergent nature, which manifests mostly at the border of art and the daily life. Here ’Dit is Dit’ tries to astonish, alienate or surprise, every time in a different way. Check out ditisdit.com to find out more.
