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.Â He has worked with a variety of clients worldwide such as IBM, Fortune, Adobe and Wired to name a few.Â On the blog 8Faces he says this about his work:
â€œMy 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 wasnâ€™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) doesnâ€™t make it any easier. Certainly when youâ€™re a designer, clients donâ€™t want two designs but still require two languages.â€
â€œThis 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.â€
