Ward Heirwegh graduated from the Graphic Design department at the Sint-Lucas campus of Luca School of Arts (Ghent) in 2007. In his design practice he devotes particular attention to typography, visual language and the editorial process. He works with artists, curators, writers and architects on a variety of projects including books, posters, exhibitions, record sleeves and websites. In addition to teaching at St Lucas School of Arts (Antwerp), he is the founder of Sleeperhold Publications, a research platform for artists’ publications that offers room for experimentation in possible forms of cooperation, and in the media and conventions of his discipline.
The publication ‘Reweaving the Urban Carpet’ has been awarded the ‘Prix Fernand Baudin Prijs’ in 2015. Ward has given workshops and lectures in Belgium, The Netherlands, Spain, Switzerland, Turkey and Canada.
