Some time ago I was asked by the University of Ghent to come up with a proposal for an invitation for Dies Natalis (the birthday of the university). I decided to go for an Art Deco touch, and made the proposal you can see above. In the end the University decided to pursue another idea, but I like mine a lot and I wanted to share it with you guys.

I also want to use this post to direct you to the Koerslogo’s page again! I’ve been hard at work these past couple of weeks to keep up with all the bicycle races, and it’s working out great so far. The collection has grown to twelve logos already, and it’s not going to stop soon!
Announcing a new project! It’s called “Koerslogo’s”, which is Flemish for “Road Cycling Logo’s” or something like that. The 2014 Spring Cycling Season starts this Saturday with Omloop Het Nieuwsblad (aka Gent - Gent), and I will be making a new logo for every important and semi-important race. I will put up a new logo two days before each specific race. Omloop Het Nieuwsblad starts in exactly two days, so here it is already!
Please follow the project on Twitter (@koerslogos), or right here, on Tumblr, where I’ll also post updates (pretty convenient, isn’t it?). 
I really like doing these kind of architectural flat-but-with-some-depth drawings as of late. This one is of a building that’s on the edge of the city of Ghent. Props if you know where it is!
Make sure to check out the bigger version.
This week I made another illustration / infograph for Hello Bank, this time about the evolution of prices over the past 4 years. 
Check out the full illustration: 


Check it out on their website.
For some reason I haven’t shared these on my blog yet: my personal business cards! The black is letterpressed on Macho Mick white 470gr paper by Peter over at Tipozero in Brussels, and the blue bar is then stamped by myself. That way I can just make another stamp with another message whenever I feel like it.
I just recently did the graphics for Disco Naïveté’s end-of-the-year lists. Coming soon: the graphics for their Sound of 2014 lists! 
This illustration is part of an infographic about the energy usage of house appliances I did for Hello bank! (yes, you write it with an exclamation point) last week. The client liked the illustration of my own house so much they asked me to do make a similar one in the same style. I could choose the shape of the house, so I tried my hand at some modern architecture :)
I was asked to work with the signature colors of Hello bank!, bright blue and two shades of coral. Not my favorite color combination, but they work just fine for the highlights.
Check out the full infographic right here.
And here’s a detail of the kitchen.

Love how this turned out!
T, for Thomas. Or Tooth Fairy. Or tits. Whatever floats your boat.
These past few weeks I’ve been working on some projects for the lovely chaps over at Trendwolves. The picture above is my rendition of their logo, which is some guy in a tough pose with two wolfheads. I thought that was pretty cool, but I wanted to make it even cooler by transforming the tough guy into a robot. Doesn’t get any better than that folks!
Exciting news: As of yesterday I’m working with the famous music blog Disco Naïveté, creating graphics, illustrations and other visual shenanigans!
Above is the first thing to come out of our collaboration, it’s a small illustration for Disco Naïveté’s annual Readers Poll. More to come in the near future …

Update: Here’s the illustration that comes with the results:
Here’s my personal portfolio newspaper! I’m sending these out to potential clients and friends. Hit me up if you want one, or browse through it online at  Newspaperclub!
Small illustration for a news article about a Somalian pirate who got caught after he was lured to Belgium by police who were undercover acting as movie executives. The pirate thought he was going to sign a movie deal, but ended up behind bars.
My home! It’s an illustration for the back cover of my portfolio newspaper, to be found in the near future at an art director near you.
Here I am exploring possibilities for my “personal branding” (I hate those two words), and in the meantime practicing my icon making skills. The first one may or may not be my new personal logo, we’ll see how things work out. I’ll be needing that very soon because I am in the middle of establishing myself as an independent graphic designer and illustrator. Exciting times :) 
You may notice that my initials spell out “TV” which is something I’m not too pleased about, but I’ve learned to live with that. In the beginning it was a little bit tempting to just draw a tv screen and use that for a logo and call it a day. Either that or just rip the “TV” from the MTV logo. That might actually have been kinda cool.
You may also notice that my initials are drawn in an adapted version of my very own typeface called Marville, which I have finally completed last week. Look out for a commercial release of that in the near near future!
Exciting times indeed.
"Cultures II", or "Beschavingen II" in Dutch, is a digital schoolbook about the ancient Greek and Roman cultures intented for 13 and 14-year olds. It’s part of my graduation project that explores the potential of educational digital books. 
 
At the start of the book there’s a small manual so the students can learn how to use the book.


As it’s a history book, the content is organised in specific time periods, which makes it easy to organize the table of contents as an interactive timeline.


Each new chapter begins with an overview of the area that’s featured. With the satellite button in the top left corner the reader is taken to Google Maps where they can study a map of the present.





The main text of the chapter scrolls right over the map. Readers can always access the full map again by double tapping.

In the text are hyperlinks which open a wikipediawindow about the keyword. This allows students to expand their knowledge about certain subjects which aren’t necessarily part of the official curriculum.
