Since 2010 Mario De Meyer worked as a freelance graphic designer based in Ghent, Belgium. His strong focus is on typography but has also concentrated in abstract designs. He has worked with a variety of clients worldwide such as IBM, Fortune, Adobe and Wired to name a few. On the blog 8Faces he says this about his work:
“My love for lettering is something that grew over the years. During school typography lessons were always one of my favourites, but I never thought back then that it would become my main focus. Typography wasn’t so big back then. I think my love of lettering actually came from frustration. Belgium is a pretty complicated country and the fact that we have two languages (Dutch and French) doesn’t make it any easier. Certainly when you’re a designer, clients don’t want two designs but still require two languages.”
“This frustration was healthy in a way. As a reaction I started designing stuff for myself for fun, with my own philosophy and to challenge myself.”
