'Kunstencentrum BELGIE' is the end result of a school assignment. The goal was to redesign the visual identity of an existing cultural organization.
Kunstencentrum BELGIE (‘Art centre BELGIUM’) is a highly alternative and versatile art centre. Because of these characteristics, it was not an option to create the clean, modern look we would expect for a cultural institution. Instead, there was chosen to create a corporate typeface, representing the dynamic character of the art centre. The logo can be written with this typeface. Because the logo can be written, it is also easily adjustable. Therefore, I chose for a dynamic logo, providing the art centre with a set of basic rules to place the different parts of the logo. Because ‘kunstencentrum BELGIE’ dares to be itself, the visual identity uses the typeface in big lettering, on a flashy, daring orange background.
Includes a dynamic logo, a corporate typeface, a letterhead, an envelop, a folder, business cards and a corporate identity manual.
BELGIE is the corporate typeface used for ‘kunstencentrum BELGIE’ (see here).
The typeface is basically a redesigned version of a free font called Bebas. The underlying grid was changed, and the font was made a little more humanistic so it would fit with ‘kunstencentrum BELGIE’. Missing glyphs were added, and changes were made to kerning and spacing.
‘Content’ is a school assignment, in which we had to redesign two indexes, one using images, one only using typography. The first index ‘Beeld/Praktijk/Apparatuur/Shoot’ is the redesign for the photography-magazine ‘Shoot’, dividing the content into different layers. The second index ‘We Design Your Space’ is a redesign of a design magazine.
'1948' is the name of a typeface, designed for a school project.
Inspiration for the typeface came from the lettering on a world war 2 monument, crafted in metal. The goal was to capture the rigid form of the metal, and the efforts of the metal worker trying to bend the curves.
Berlin Kultur Café is a fictional, cultural café/museum/studio, which offers a starting point for starting artists. The goal of the assignment was to create a logo and corporate identity, using fauna or flora, and a particular city. The logo created refers to a flourishing flower, representing the growth the artist will experience. It was then made into a pattern. The chosen city, Berlin, demanded a modern look, but with a special twist.
Includes a logo, letterheads, some business cards and envelopes.
