Bookdesign for "Reweaving the Urban Carpet". As part of the IABR2014 ‘Urban-by-Nature’ project, Architecture Workroom Brussels, together with Floris Alkemade and LOLA landscape architects, studied how the specific qualities and challenges of the BrabantStad patchwork metropolis can be used for development and action.

Art direction and design of the fifth EP release on Sleeperhold Publications. Body Lotion is a collaboration between Belgium’s Sleeperhold Publications, Australian duo HTRK and London-based artist David Ferrando Giraut. The three tracks on the record—”Sugar,” “Punch” and the title track, “Body Lotion”—date back to the sessions that led to the band’s 2011 album, Work (Work Work). Two of the songs feature the unmistakable basslines of Sean Stewart, who died in 2010, before Work (Work Work) was released.
David Ferrando Giraut’s distinctive artwork adorns Body Lotion’s sleeve and one side of the wax. (All three tracks feature on the record’s A-side.)
