Gilles Vandenoostende

Hi, I'm Gilles Vandenoostende - designer, illustrator and digital busybody with a love of language, based in Ghent, Belgium.

About me

I'd like to see myself as a renaissance geek. Like the great masters of old, I stubbornly refuse to specialize, preferring to remain plugged into as many different fields as I can humanly muster.

I've been doing this web-thing professionally for over 5 years now, working for Proximity BBDO and for some kick-ass clients. During this time I never stopped expanding my skill-set, doing HTML, CSS, Flash, Flex, ActionScript, PHP and an all too infrequent bit of 3D modeling, as well as crafting pixel-perfect designs and dabbling with concept-creation.

I'm passionate about design, science, art and storytelling, and I've been working with computers for nearly as long as I can remember. If ever a dull moment should strike, hand me a paper and pencil and I'll gladly sketch away for hours.
