Who

 

We focus on editorial and identity design. We are content driven. We have a strong opinion, should you be looking for one.

Johan Van Looveren (°1969) and Hilde Princen (°1974) met one another in 2002, and have been working together ever since. The unique quality of their work is the result of their totally different backgrounds.
Johan studied graphic design at Sint-Lukas Brussels, college of arts and design and specialised in typography at the Plantin Institute for Typography. In 1995, he began working as a self-employed graphic designer. He teaches graphic design and typography at Sint-Lukas Brussels.
Hilde has a master’s degree in linguistics and literature. She entered the world of publishing via communications agencies, where she worked as a project leader. About ten years ago, she converted to graphic design and joined Johan.
