[April Fools'] Color change! »

The time has come! The first steps have been made to change our corporate identity.

Update: as many have noted this was an April Fool's joke. At least for now, blue (#1d428a) remains the Inter-Actief_colour and the changes to the website were only temporary. Are you interested in making _long-term changes to the website? Then become a member of the WWW, our website committee! Send an email to www@inter-actief.net for more information.


You might have heard the board already talk about wanting to make changes to our corporate identity. Now is the time we can proudly unveil our first step: The color change!

We have collaborated with Abacus for this one; for a reasonable financial compensation Abacus has allowed us to copy their color scheme. With this step we are moving closer to a more unified EEMCS. As you can see, we have already rolled out the first step. No worries though, we realise there might still be rough edges, but we intend to patch these out over time.

This exciting new step does, however, come with a small downside: as already briefly pointed out, there was a financial compensation involved in acquiring the rights to Abacus’ color scheme. This does mean we will have to reevaluate our expenses for activities, unfortunately.

We cannot wait to hear your feedback!

On behalf of the 42nd board,
Willem Schooltink

The Lustrum committee has worked towards this day for some time now, and has prepared some nice festivities for you to take part in, even during these weird corona times.

Of course, the birthday boy or girl hands out treats. So, this morning, you can send in your name and address at https://ictsv.nl/secret and a LuCie member might drop by to drop of a present! Furthermore, this afternoon we would like to gather on Discord to toast to the Lustrum together at 4 o’clock. Make sure to be online a bit before 16:00 as our toast will be live at 16:00 at https://ictsv.nl/lustrumsalute!

Lastly, tonight, we organize the Thales Mixelate Workshop. After the success of the previous online cocktail workshop a lot of people requested another one, so we have arranged for our master mixer and bartender Prem to guide you through the workshop tonight. Make sure you check whether all ingredients have been provided to you beforehand, and if not, send us an email at info@lustrumpixelate.nl. The workshop starts at 20:00 and a link to the stream will be provided tonight!
