Studio Bergen is Jeroen Bergen, a freelance graphic designer who lives and works in Aarschot, Belgium.
My focus mainly lies on print design: logo & identity design, book (cover) design and poster design, always with a strong focus on typography. Besides that I also love designing brochures, music packaging, information graphics,... and doing DTP work in general as well, because I like variation in my work.
Clients include City of Leuven, City of Hasselt, City of Aarschot, Fonk vzw (Cinema Zed, Docville, Kortfilmfestival Leuven), JongDOEK (OpenDOEK), Uitgeverij Houtekiet, Uitgeverij Acco, Uitgeverij Averbode, Smile Event Company, De Haven Aarschot, JC De Klinker, Old Rules Leuven, Ampersand Music, Hageland Festival, Mistinguett, abe architecten, Com & Co,... and more.
In 2008 I graduated at Hogeschool Sint-Lukas in Brussels (which has now become a campus of LUCA School of Arts) as a master in graphic design. I started freelancing at the end of the same year.
I don't really have one particular style, since every project has its own needs, but you can say that in general I get a lot of inspiration from mid 20th century Modernist design.
Besides being a designer, I mainly fill my time with music: I have a one man band (the lo-fi slacker synth-pop band Costanza), I am half of an eclectic vinyl DJ duo – so you can call me a vinyl addict as well – and a frequent concertgoer.
Besides all that I am also taking my first steps as a screenwriter... to be continued.
