On my desk this morning: Victron Calendar

Guess what I found on my desk this morning? The result of our secret calendar project! The whole project has been managed by Marianka Pranger. She even took all but one of the photos herself. Marianka is our web editor, taking care of documentation translations, layouts, brochures and many other tasks.

And now we know, that besides doing all that, she has a fantastic creative and photographic talent. It is really remarkable.

Photos have been taken at many cool locations, such as Schiphol Airport, the highest building in Rotterdam, the Amsterdam Hospital AMC and our warehouse DSV in Rotterdam. All powered by Victron.

The calendar is available in limited quantities. Distribution will be taken care of by our area managers, dealers and distributors.
