Belgian designer Jelle Maréchal isn’t doing too badly for himself at all: he’s designer and art director at Antwerp’s Museum of Contemporary Art, and also manages to find time to work on numerous other projects on the side, from branding high-end bicycles to creating slick websites and posters. One of the ones that caught our eye is the design for a sweet book promoting performance organisations from The Netherlands and Flanders, and is initiated by The Netherland Consulate General and Flanders House in NYC. The book was designed in collaboration with Dutch NYC-based designer Kees Bakker. As in Jelle’s work for Atelier, the clever use of colour and line make for an engaging but clean aesthetic. We’re also bringing you some op art-inspired posters created for Fresco, a video installation by Antwerp-based art collective Lampekap. The graphics use four different silhouettes taken from stills from Jeroen Bosch’s Garden of Earthly Delights, placing them in a neat grid that adds order to some rather trippy ideas.
