Pieter Boels is a graphic designer and lettering artist living and working in Antwerp, Belgium. He received his master's degree at St-Lucas School of Arts in 2008 after which he worked at several agencies and for a short while at the local museum of contemporary art. In 2012 he set up his own studio, and has since worked with a bunch of awesome people in the commercial and cultural sector.
Pieter's practice focuses on branding, editorial and print design, with a specialty in hand lettering and calligraphy. In an ever more automated and robotised world, he values manual craft and the human touch in design (yes, that's a fancy way of saying imperfection is okay).
Believing in a hands-on and holistic approach to any brief, he prefers to work with people rather than for. Next to commissions Pieter also creates a lot of personal work, constantly exploring new visuals and techniques. Humor is an important factor in all this, following the mantra that life is too short (or too long) to not have a lot of fun.
