Holga got taken apart and put back together again.



Once upon a time, there lived a pretty red holga camera. That got taken apart because it was sick. It got put back together again like humpty dumpty did. His genius master made him into an invincible robot and programmed him to say, " I'll be back Bi*tches".


**Prints are available in custom colors as well. Email for prices.** Thanks for viewing!!

50 reasons to (not) date a graphic designer

With thanks to A Bourbon for Silvia. The ones in black speak of me alone but the whole list is brilliant and oh so true xD It's embarassing. Enjoy!

3. They will analyse conversations in layers.
4. You will spend the day assembling furniture from IKEA.
5. They drink and eat all kinds of weird shit just because they like the packaging.
6. They hate each other.
7. You’ll come out the last out of the movies because you have to see the full list of credits.
8. They cant change a light bulb or without making a sketch.
9. They fuck up all the tables with their cutters.
10. They rather study the paisley pattern on your outfit than listen to what you have to say.
11. They will fill your house with magazines and whatever is out there that has drawings.

22. They steal street signs.
23. Always have their hands painted with something.
24. They buy dolls unfinished for them to paint. (sneakers in my case)
25. Everything becomes something other than what it really is: cards as tickets, cards as …
26. When arguing, you will be nicknamed like the OSX spinning wheel (not affectionately)
27. Do not know how to dress without consulting the Pantone book. (color inspiration is important)
28. They hate Excel.
29. They read comics.

35. They can’t go to a restaurant without secretly critiquing the menu design.
36. They listen to music you have never heard of.
37. They can´t cook a normal dish, they always have to experiment with new ingredients.
38. They read rare books: stories of children, Semiotics …
39. When you are going to tell you something, everyone has read it in their facebook and twitter.
40. They have own iPods before you knew they existed.
41. The orgasm they remember is when they heard that Adobe was acquiring Macromedia.
42. They have their own shops just for them and there are the most expensive in the city.
43. They want to spend all the money in the Apple Store.
44. You will never understand their gifts.
45. They see ordinary objects and laugh.
46. You wake up in the middle of the night hearing them screaming “When is the deadline?”
47. They see CMYK and RGB like Neo sees the Matrix.
48. They dream of the day nobody will make a single change to their designs.
49. They rather pay for a font than for a special birthday gift.
50. They are always sleepy because they work 24/7.

Lichtheid

These are pictures of a paper sculpture I made. The assignment was to visualize a word in 3D form. The choice of paper as material made the assignment at the first glance, hard because paper is such a fine material. But with such a neutral material as paper, it becomes such a malleable communicative middle.

The production of the sculpture was hours of bent over neck breaking precision work and replication after replication for the right curves and folds. I'm proud to show off the final pictures of the sculpture representing 'Lichtheid' (lightness).




The concept behind the sculpture is based on the movement of air.

Cheers all!

Lying on your back







This is a series of photographs I took around Hasselt area. Hopped on a bike and managed to snap a couple of these for a photography assignment called 'lying on your back'. Seeing everything from underneath allows you notice everything and capture images that communicate on a whole new level.
