In the year-and-a-half since we first featured Belgian designer Vincent Vrints on the site his fortunes have risen with the quality of his work. We were always enamoured with his canny ability to create aesthetically astounding imagery and merge it with equally appealing layouts, but he’s refined his process and embraced some new digital techniques resulting in a portfolio that floats between the retro and the ultra futuristic.
This enviable style has resulted in work with the frankly awesome Studio Dumbar, with whom he created these beautiful posters and publication for the ATypI typographic conference in Amsterdam – featuring names like Henrik Kubel, Fraser Muggerdige and Irma Boom. Vincent has applied his abstract type treatments across all elements of the branding, creating a varied selection of images that complement the simple A13 of the conference’s monogram. In the brochure however, he shows off some solid layout skills – skills he rarely shows off on his website but we always assumed he possessed.
