PXL MAD faculty — Brochure concept
We love taking down a project brief bit by bit and bring it to something elementary basic as a concept. What's the essence of what we're making here? That kind of questions is our thing. Design is merely the answer.
Borgerhoff & Lamberigts — Belgian bike and beer book
"Stampen en afzien"
This book shows what us Belgians are good at and where we do it. Classic routes, curated by the very best in cycling. Bookdesign, maps, and on the spot approving of beercafes.
MOPAN — Stitch and fold
Amidst the printed material, the ad for Knack Weekend had to stand out and show what Mopan was all about. Undiscovered by many, held in hugging arms by few. The ad was embroirdered, with a sating fold finish.
MAP — Coated paper box
Five types of coated paper needed to be bundled and brought to life. Subtle differences needed a more artistic and visual recollection. A designer's tool.
MRS — A conceptual voyage to a place called MRS (Mars)
The beautiful Skin Curious paper collection was bundled and sent off to a trip to MRS. Laser cuts, silkscreen printed details, embossings, different types of varnish here and there, exoticfoil prints. Let's just say, the book was a joy to work on.Oh and we also designed the vehicle to land on that planet. Among other things...
Make History on Denim — A Lee Point of Sales activation tool
This book is biggest we have designed and hand made ourselves so far. 70 x 100 centimeters of denim pages. 7 sections, first stitched then hand bound together and provided with a large set of textile markers and paint markers to attract some denim customisers on the shop floor. Held together by silkscreenprinted plywood panels and big fat belt around it. Around a hundred books were made that summer. Yes, on the pebbles and in the sun. Marvelous summer, blue fingers.
Marollengids — A guide into one of the most characteristic neighbourhoods of Brussels
The book is about a colourful and alive local atmosphere in an old neighbourhood of the metropolitan capital of Belgium. A project with the support of Prince Laurent of Belgium. The book shows insights and unknown spots.
Cultuurgids — A triptych guide into the world of culture, the educating part
Concept of the book, derived from the idea of the study: Culture, one finds after looking in the mirror, looking at the people surrounding and by dreaming adn travelling along. A triptych, to explore what is behind the idea of culture. Designing the book went further, and 3 short story writers were asked to deliver a distracting path, the reader could follow, and through it, find a different version of the truth... of culture.
KHLim Lerarenopleiding Symposium — Portraits of the next generation
In order to teach kids one must dive into their world. This book was made to understand a little more what rules their thinking and what inspires them. A guide, designed for a symposium held among teachers and thinkers. The photoshoot alone was a bomb of pure energy. Kids have a force, underestimated by a lot of us.
KHLim Lerarenopleiding — Subject didactics
How do you learn a subject? How do you teach how you learn a subject? How do you teach how you teach how you learn a subject? A triangular business this is. Shifting between subject knowledge, practice and didactics. The book was made as a work in progress, an unfinished cover with the binding left bare, a final section is even left unbound. The idea is that this a neverending project. Hence the logo and the wonderful images of Sarah Hermans, displaying the playful purity of nature and the continuity of the various generations.
