RikGrafiek is my moniker but my parents named me Rik Staesens. I'm an independent multi-disciplinary graphic designer from Gent, Belgium.
If you are looking for branding, editorial design, signage and way finding... look no further. I'm a lover of all things printed and paper is my friend. My work has received international recognition and has been published by IdN Magazine, Pencilcase, Chois Gallery, Good Idea and various online resources such as Behance and Creative Network.
Read an interview I did with Creative Network
I've got 99 problems but a pitch ain't one!
As a rule of thumb, I won't enter any unpaid design pitches. You don't expect a chef to cook you a free meal before making reservations.
