Sara van de Ven is the Assistant Publisher and the PR & Publicity Manager for BIS Publishers. She studied Concepts & Brands, with a minor in Visual Culture, at the Amsterdam Fashion Institute. She’s also a freelance Graphic Designer, picture editor and loves to write funny short stories.

In the last few years Sara has become fascinated with man’s digital addiction. When she started looking more closely at how people around her use digital equipment, she realised she was just as addicted as everyone else. After talking to friends and family about why our phone,
laptop and tv are almost our best friends nowadays, she felt that the world needs a good old fashioned reality check. She came up with the most ‘normal’ things to do without using a screen and unknowingly started writing'The Book of Do-ness'.
