Final project: Strip-p-ed out

About me

Photo by Ludi Loiseau

Trained as a graphic designer and media designer, I worked for ten years with Open Source Publishing making websites and visual identities using only Free and Open Source Software. I also teach Digital Design at École de Recherche Graphique where I guide students into experimenting free software for graphics, hybrid publishing (web2print). Since 2020, I joined Green Fabric, a textile fablab in Brussels. There I like to jump from machine to machine, but I focus mainly on machine knitting.
