Sint Lucas Antwerp.
Since 1990, I teach graphic design and typography at the graphic design department of Sint Lucas Antwerp
(Karel de Grote-Hogeschool). Sint Lucas Antwerp is an academic bachelor-master program which forms students in their development of an artistic or design practise. Sint Lucas Antwerp puts the emphasis on topicality and experiment in art and design and it offers broad room for artistic research.
As from september 2012, I have been appointed head of the graphic design department. Actually, I am teaching at the Masters's program and I am researcher at and coordinator of the research group 'The Hybrid Designer'
Plantin Institute of Typography, Antwerp.
Since 2010, I am teaching the course 'the design process' at The Plantin Institute of Typography in Antwerp.
This institute organizes advanced courses for anyone who works in the broader field of graphic communication.
The students are offered a mass of printing and typographic knowledge and skills and explore the historical background to their work, while also looking at recent developments and contemporary techniques. In addition to its educational objectives, the Plantin Society also tries to stimulate interest in typography by means of specific activities.
La Cambre, Brussels.
Since 2016, I have been appointed as guest professor at the 'Ecole nationale supérieure des arts visuels of La Cambre' situated in the heart of Brussels. La Cambre is one of Belgium’s leading schools of art and design.
Founded in 1927 by the architect and designer Henry van de Velde, the Ecole nationale supérieure des arts visuels of La Cambre (ENSAV) has some 700 students spread across 17 departments.
I am teaching at the Master's program in the Typography department.
Sometimes I am invited to give workshops or to collaborate to them at various locations worldwide.

Integrated Conferences - International art & design conferences, Antwerp
Since 2007, I am the conference responsible of the Integrated Conferences. Integrated is a buzzing conference format organized by St Lucas School of Arts Antwerp. The event offers a platform for the compelling dialogue between art, design and society, and wallows therefore in the polemics of this discourse. It is a forum with a high festival factor at which speakers can compare their work, design processes, sources of inspiration and methodologies, leaving those present with a sense of ‘indigestion’ that can be interpreted as: ‘Well, I need to catch my breath, but at least I was there’.
Don't hesitate and mark in your agenda the date for Integrated2017 in Antwerp: 14 and 15 November 2017. Integrated is organised by Sint Lucas Antwerpen (Karel de Grote-Hogeschool) and the deSingel Internationale Kunstcampus Antwerpen.
