Formidaniel Book trailers

After having seen quite a few bad examples of book trailers I decided to develop a better way to market books on social media and webpages. But for a more reasonable budget than usual. About three months later, following an initial trial with a selected few customers, the offer is now a part of the […]

Formidaniel and taking matters into your own hands

I have worked as a freelancer for quite some time, in order to take on work that I really enjoy doing but could not take on as an employee where I was currently working. During the years I have accumulated more and more projects and customers and although the intention has never really been to […]

Alternate Dimensions

While compiling a selection of older Science Fiction short stories I was inspired to create a work of art that could convey the concept of alternative realities or alternate dimensions. When I came across a fantastic shot by Mithul Varshan from Puducherry, India, I found the perfect start for a surrealistic digital painting. Created with […]

Time for Mars to bloom

While writing my upcoming novel I decided to create some artwork inspired by the story that was evolving.

Well, certainly book trailers is nothing completely new. But a smart combination of motion graphics, video editing, visual effects, sound design and music […]

Classic Darkness Book Cover

It is not all that often that you get to design the cover of an anthology in which your work is featured. And then suddenly it happens. In this case I was asked by Darkness Publishing to design a cover for the short story anthology DARKNESS KLASSIKER, which contains reinterpretations by a selection of classic […]

Aeongate updated logo and web design

The label and creative studio AEONGATE was one of my first design projects, starting already around 1995-96 with a simple logo design. Which later evolved into several evolved versions. The last major update was made in 2007 where the logo was based on Daniel Pelavin‘s eminent Art Deco inspired typeface ITC Anna. I really enjoy […]
