A spotlight on Kenneth with 8 questions and our favourite pieces.
Kenneth is a Belgian visual artist & type designer. The primary focus of his work is to showcase typography as a form of art. To build abstract compositions with function and meaning.
Do you remember the moment you knew you wanted to become a designer?
In 2017 I took a course of webdesign which came with a small introduction of adobe photoshop and illustrator. I have always been creative, yet never had any motivation to pursue the arts. But at the end of that course I knew graphic design or visual arts was what I was supposed to do.
Did you go to design school? Do you think it was necessary to get to where you are today?
Who is your favorite designer right now?
My favourite designer is and has been Raf Simons for a very long time. I don’t really have a favourite graphic or type designer. Most of the inspiration for my work comes from other creative disciplines. Music, fashion, pop culture, art history, etc.
What is your method of getting out of a designers block?
Can you describe your ideal working environment?
Easy. All I need is peace and quiet in a beautiful setting. Google Axel Vervoordt and you will find my personal office valhalla.

What advice would you have given yourself 3 years ago?
What is the greatest challenge you have faced in your career so far? How did you overcome it?
My greatest challenge would definitely be the financial transition of student to being self employed. We all want to be financially comfortable and have job security. But even at a higher amount of exposure compared to lots of other people, I still had to fight my way to stability. Finding my way was definitely not easy. But I’m not in the danger zone anymore, I feel. Hard work and sticking to my vision for typography pulled me through and got me where I am today. And probably also a bit of luck.
