Dolly Rogers tasty new website

Welcome to our scrumptious new website full of mouthwatering, lip-smacking, fresh and flavoursome new work!

We’ve updated the site with some delectable new design and functionality features, particularly in our Projects section. ← Look left! You’ll notice our work is cleverly presented for visual storytelling, giving you an overview of each project with bigger juicier images of all the detail shots. You can read about every project by clicking the ‘Show info’ link within the Project titles.

The greatest feature is that you can see the best of our work in all screen sizes! So drag your browser window and enjoy the fluidity and motion as the images move and adapt to your viewing preference. Nice hey.

We live the culture we create for and our band has expanded, so we’ve got more content about what’s tickling our passions than ever before. You can follow all our blog entries or choose one particular band member you dig the most.

We love sharing and hope you do too! So if you like what you see in any of the projects or blog entries, just share the love… and spread the word that Dolly Rogers are indeed The best creative folk in town! Or don’t be shy about telling us what you think, contact us.

A huge thanks go out to all the awesome clients and collaborators we’ve been working with over the last two years. We love challenging ourselves and working together with those who stimulate our desire to imagine beyond what we know!

Peace and love,
The band

Last weekend I had a special guest in town aka Charly my old friend from Paris. Gone are the days when we were going to clubs together. Now he’s an athlete and when he moves you need to step back. In 2010, he won with his partner Lexflow the top-dance competition “Juste-debout” at Paradiso and was representing Holland for the international battle in Paris (Yeah it’s weird! but frenchies dancers are everywhere). Juste Debout awards duos of top-dancers –amateurs or professionals- in 5 categories : Locking, Popping, Hip Hop, House Dance and Experimental. This year Charly wasn’t competing however he felt so at home within the battle atmosphere that I lost him in 2 minutes.

Being there in the middle of all these healthy kids dancing was one of the  most enjoyable moments I’ve had in a long time, the kind of vibe and raw energy that only a true hip-hop event can give you. The next morning Charly was on a special mission for Dolly Rogers…keep posted for the next blog entry with more details about that!

Een vreemde eend in de bijt


There’s a Dutch saying een vreemde eend in de bijt which doesn’t translate quite so poetically in English, but loosely means ‘there’s a strange duck in the cracks’. Well that’s me! I’m Anne-Britt, the newest native Nederlander to join the Dolly Rogers band of creatives. Synthesiser is my instrument of choice. Over the last 3 years I’ve been busy immersing myself in fashion, photography, film, graphic design and illustration at AMFI – the Amsterdam Fashion Institute.

In 7 sloten tegelijk lopen means I’m known to have a lot of energy and always willing to try new things to add to my repertoire. I have my own small silk screening company and fashion blog – skittish skies. Take a look at my latest inspiration book (below) which was developed for the video I directed for Individuals, a Dutch fashion brand. For the next 6 months I’ll be here to add a little class and style to the cowboy culture and help set up new fashion projects.
