After living in Belgium for four years I started to question the meaning of home. I always thought “home” could only be in one location but I found myself calling both my place in Belgium and in The Netherlands “home”. The two places I call home are connected by a railway. However the last 10 kilometers of the railroad to my hometown are abandoned. Between the last station, Hamont in Belgium, and the first station, Weert in The Netherlands there is no train service. The train stops in Hamont and returns, not completing the connection between my two homes. Wondering what I was missing out on I started researching the area around the railroad that is abandoned by train services. Slowly but surely I found out about a lot of interesting things and history. Naturally I started arranging this information and slowly an encyclopaedia took shape. I used the encyclopaedia to rediscover the area around the abandoned railway that used to connect my current place of residence to my hometown. The encyclopaedia is like I am finding out about the missing link between my homes, and allowing me to complete the connection.
My masters project was focused around finding the connection between my hometown and living in Ghent. This typeface is one of the outcomes of that. The typeface is inspired by bicycle racks that I see at train stations on trips in between those places. The bicycle racks that inspired me often had questionable designs. Sometimes they had additions that did not make a lot of sense, the border between functionality and decoration was vague.
This typeface is exploring the border between function and decoration. The decorative element of the letters interfere with the readability. The letters are all made of one pencil stroke, based on bicycle racks that are bent from one long bar of steel. The name Geel comes from one of the stations that I drew inspiration from during traveling.
Portfolio website for Jill Gybels. Because Jill's work is already very visual we thought of approaching the work in a minimalistic way, but still have a bit of personality come trough. This was done by getting rid of the usual grid and having the viewer move the projects around to read the text or just for fun.
Posters for various events, event poster of digital discussion as artistic statement for the film Parasite, poster displaying all the coming movies for De Filmavonden, movie poster for In the Mood for Love and poster for 4B-KM.
Uit de lucht, naar het licht
Design for Matthias van de brul’s master thesis, research about the meaning of the deus ex machina in the tragedy of Medea by Euripides, Müller and Verhelst, and in his own theatre work. Since the thesis features numerous theater texts, that can not be separated over paragraphs, I differentiated the featured texts by turning them 90 degrees. This created a recognisable and interesting image, that was also used for the text on the cover and backcover, which folds inside and continues.

Internship report for my internship at Vrints-Kolsteren. RAL7035 is a nod to the paint colour of the new studio floor.
4 billion kilometres is a reference to the distance between the earth and the most distant source of sound the radio channel broadcasts. That sound is a recording of various planets by Voyager 1, captured as it passed the planets, NASA then transformed that data into sound, allowing you to listen to a planet 4 billion kilometres away.
The design is centred around the sun, just like the planets in our solar system which orbit the sun. There are three different visuals.
Firstly as you cannot directly look at the sun, the design replicates the overexposure you experience and then the second visual, the shapes and colour you’ll see when you look back again. Then the third and last visual is the sun as how we cannot see it with our bare eyes.
