KNOKKE OUT

PROP DESIGN

ROLE
Brand- & Prop Designer

AGENCY
Benedict Van Acker for Dingie BV

DELIVERABLES
→ Fake ID's
→ Maestro- & Credit cards
→ Interactive WhatsApp, iMessage & Find-My clones

Knokke Out is a new ten-part Netflix show which immerses you in the lives of Louise and Alexandre. Both in their twenties, they experience a seemingly careless summer in Knokke together with their friends. However, their parents' high expectations threaten to lose themselves in luxury and partying and desperately search for something they can't find: true friendship, love and most of all… themselves.

For the show, I worked with a team of production- and set designers. While doing so, I took care of branding, design and print follow-up on a made up bank — called 'modal'. I also had a big part in building WhatsApp, iMessage & Apple's Find-My clones. 

THUIS

PROP DESIGN

ROLE
Brand- & Prop Designer, Developer & Set Photographer

AGENCY
Production Thuis for VRT

DELIVERABLES
→ Fake official documents, Maestro cards
→ Brand imaginary companies, drinks & medication
→ Interactive WhatsApp, Instagram & Tinder clones

For a couple of years now, I’ve been working as a digital creator and prop designer on the most watched Flemish television soap, called ‘Thuis’. The show gains over 900 000 viewers almost every weekday. 

In Thuis, The Bomans, Bastiaens, Verbeeck, and de Grote families must navigate personal and romantic relationships while dealing with the challenges of their daily lives.

Next to providing some fake official documents, postal cards, boarding passes, I also took care of labelling for some wine and beer bottles, since we couldn't just buy those in store and use them for the sake of ‘sponsoring’. Even branding fake companies and building fully functional WhatsApp, Instagram & Tinder clones became part of the job. 

VRT

BRANDING

ROLE
Brand Designer

AGENCY
VRT (Flemish national broadcaster)

DELIVERABLES
→ Beachflags & banners
→ E-mail signature
→ Access badge & lanyard

At the beginning of the pandemic, I was contacted by VRT to support their team of internal & external communications as a photographer, and help them build a digital creative team. 

During those two years, VRT made some huge transformations. As a team, we felt struggled and tightened in expressing what the company stood for and discovered it was about time to redefine VRT: a forever current media brand for the Flemish people. Together with Saffron, we transformed VRT into a future-proof media brand through VRT, VRT NWS, and VRT MAX.
