Background information:
Main colors are red white & blue (the Netherlands & Denmark). Theme words that form the basis for this concept: finding your way, scandinavia, colors of the countries, nature, silence, hope, thinking ahead. If you look at the levels mentioned in the research, there are 3 ‘ways’ in the dissertation: macro – meso – micro. These research themes are visualized in a 1 main road, branching off in 3 different roads. The roads run across the thesis like ‘a yellow brick road’. You find them on every chapter page and they help navigate through the thesis as the chapter markings. There are 6 different signs at the start of every chapter, that let you know what it is about: 1 = intro, 2 = macro level, 3 = meso & micro level, 4 & 5 = micro level, 6 = all levels come together.
