Designing graphic design

In the AMVB (Archive and Museum of the Flemish life in Brussels) you can see all the graphic works I did. Not only the printed results are archived here but also every sketch, every mock-up and all the final artworks. Sometimes even a printer’s proof.
I was always drawing a lot, trying out many ideas.
Photographs of the design process are also here.
So it is a very rich, interesting and beautiful collection of pre-digital handcraft design.
(Complete list below.)

 

KLAPSTUK 85
The secret of the 100 dancing posters for this dance festival was a smart print process. The original was like a puzzle, quite small, but printed very big, in two colours.

A FLEMISH RECOGNITION MEDAL
