I had the great fortune to do some illustration and layout work for one of Smashing Magazine's new books
called "Digital Adaptation"
, written by Paul Boag
. Yet another fun and creatively challenging project that I would love to share its design process here on my blog, starting with the design of the cover of the book and the creation of the pre-launch website landing page.
With the Spring Classics in full swing, this is the perfect moment to share my story about a t-shirt design
I recently created for WieMu
, "To be or not to be Flandrien
We had a very entertaining openingsweekend here in Belgium with 'Omloop het Nieuwsblad
' and 'Kuurne Brussel Kuurne
'. Perfect timing to launch a new publication that is called 'Titanen
'. It's always a pleasure to work on a subject that you are passionate about. I had a small contribution with creating an infographic about the main star. The first edition is completely devoted to a true titan, Fabian Cancellara
One of the projects I've also
been working on in the past couple of months, is the redesign of a web site for one of our longterm clients, Exonet
, a Dutch Internet provider. Today I want to share my design process of this project, which involved my favourite mix: illustration work, combined with web site design & layout, and front-end coding.
We are a few weeks into our yearly birthday celebration of Authentic Jobs
. I can't believe this is already the 8th time
we are doing this. Regular readers will know that we always celebrate this milestone by giving back. This year you can help us in surpassing the $100,000 mark
in our charity: water campaign. Excited and proud to be part of this wonderful board and campaign!
A couple of weeks ago there was the launch of 'Collections'
, a WordPress theme I designed for The Theme Foundry
. It was a pleasure to work on this theme, and a true privilege to work with and for this creative team. Today I want to share my story about this project, and tell you all about my design process. Be prepared for a rather extensive article, which is only a recapitulation of this design adventure…
While I was creating this infographic for Grinta!
magazine, I was thinking why not turn this into a poster design for the 100th edition of the Tour of France. The idea of designing a poster on this subject had already been on my mind for a while, but this time I had a few concrete ideas & finally some time to actually create them…
Designing an infographic
on a subject that sparks more than just your interest is always a fun challenge to do. This time Grinta! magazine
asked me to design one about the Tour of France, and more particularly about the question that comes to mind of many cycling fans: 'What does a pro cycling team take with them to the Tour of France?'.
Sometimes I wish all job requests could be like this one. Then again, I'm the last person to complain as I get to do what I love on most days. What I want to say is that some projects just give me such a joy to work on. These favorites of mine usually have an illustration part. One of them was this infographic
about women and cycling for Grinta!
, a Belgian magazine all about cycling. Today I'll explain the steps I took during the design process, and also share some details on how I created some of the graphs…
