Burocrazy is a small design and consultancy firm in Antwerp.
I graduated in software engineering in 2000 and in graphic design in 2004 and have been employed at the St. Lucas School of Arts since. Burocrazy allows me to have one foot in reality and the other foot in the academic world.
I have a keen interest in generative art and rule-based graphic design. To that end, I’m developing an application for creating generative art and design using Python programming code, called NodeBox. With it, you can create 2-dimensional visuals (static, animated and interactive) that you can effortlessly export as a PDF document or QuickTime movie. NodeBox is open-source, well-documented and has a friendly community.
I try to use generative tools for tackling otherwise difficult or impossible challenges, generating hundreds of pages, intricate designs, and even as a brainstorming tool. This website shows you a few of these designs. This not only makes the end result, but also the process, intriguing.
I’m a strong believer in open source and free software. I publish most of my own work as open source or under the Creative Commons.
