Stories of Product Innovation — scenography — 2022
Scenography design for the exhibition Stories of Product Innovation at WONDER Kortrijk.

We designed an overwhelming setting that celebrates innovation and encourages wonderment. An impressive structure of ventilation ducts guided the visitors through the space and served as a support system for the various exhibited projects. The structure is visually complemented with classy velvet curtains, a powerful typography in bright red and shinny mirrors.

We overwhelmed without wasting. Once the exhibition was finished, the borrowed ventilation ducts could return to the manufacturer.

Exercises in Accessibility — print — 2022
Publication design for the text by Anaïs Van Ertvelde who wrote a collection of thoughts, feelings, provocations and exhortations centred around two of the themes raised during the course of the festival: the theme of – her own - access needs; and the theme of looking at difference.

By risoprinting the main text in fluo pink, and the elaborate text in purple notes, the two storylines smoothly alternate and interact. A hybrid and fluid typeface is used to highlight titles and phrases. Vibrant gradients over the pages and a purple binding make the publication into a visual whole.
