The Steenweg

For perspective.brussels we designed an explanatory panel which retraces the history of the "Steenweg", the road linking up and downtown Brussels for centuries and on which is situated their office.

In addition to the graphic design, cartography, historical and iconographic research, we also produced and assembled the six-meter non-orthogonal panel, directly printed on wood in 5 colours, as well as a series of informative kakemonos made according to the same process.

Heritage Days 2018

No particular plans for this weekend, the 15 and 16 of September? Then we have the perfect solution for you… it is Heritage days in Brussels.

As part of “2018 – the European Year of Cultural Heritage”, the Brussels-Capital Region has set itself a new challenge: “What if we asked the citizens to tell us about their heritage? What if they themselves wrote the programme for the Heritage Days?” 
The initiative was a success, with over one hundred projects being sent in to the Monuments and Sites Directorate! Of these, the jury selected 95 submissions, and they now make up the programme for the 2018 edition of the Heritage Days.

In addition to the sites to be visited, numerous activities will be on offer throughout the region.

Exhibition/Tour: Remigio Cantagallina

To mark the exhibition "Remigio Cantagallina, an Italian traveller in the Southern Netherlands", we produced a guidebook retracing the steps of the artist in Brussels at the beginning of the 17th century.

Generously illustrated, this guidebook compares the Florentine artist’s drawings with the Brussels we know today.

The exhibition takes place underground in the remains of the old Palais du Coudenberg until the 27th of August.

Kaligram creates the visual identity of the Musée L

On the 29th of April, UCL authorities unveiled to the press and the public the name and logo of "Musée L", which will open at the end of 2016 in the former Library of Sciences in Louvain-la-Neuve.

Kaligram was entrusted to design the graphic identity of the museum, and the logo we created was greeted with much success at the event.

In the forthcoming months we will continue to enrich the visual identity of the Musée Universitaire de Louvain by presenting a coherent and attractive interpretation of this new institution.

Kaligram Twenty Years Anniversary

On a beautiful crisp winter’s day, December 21st 1993, in the back of a Notary’s office, the most amazing wonder of the world was born. 

A message was sent from the notary to the Wise Graphic Designers who brought gold, creativity and precision. Frankincense and Myrrh were refused as being unnecessary but that’s how on that exceptional day, Kaligram was born. 

A carpenter who happened to be present took the initiative to prepare some sort of contract, which everyone then signed. 

The story does not say what happened to the donkey and the ox… but that has not stopped the Wise Graphic Designers to “faire la zwanze”* for the last twenty years!
