Studio Pieter Boels


I am a graphic designer, lettering artist and calligrapher.


I received my master's degree at St-Lucas School of Arts in 2008 after which I worked at several agencies in Antwerp and for a short while at the local museum of contemporary art. In 2012 I dove into the freelance life, and I have since worked with a bunch of awesome people in the commercial and cultural sector.

My practice focuses on branding, editorial and print design, with a specialty in hand lettering and calligraphy. In an ever more automated and faster world, I value manual craft, tactility and the human touch in design. 

Believing in a hands-on and holistic approach to any brief, I prefer to work with people rather than for. Next to commissions I 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.

Together with my partner in type eltipo, I form the letter-crazy collective Analphabetics, and I'm a founding member of Antwerp Type Society.
