Kristof Luyckx is born in 1981 and lives/works in Ghent (Belgium).
He graduated in visual arts at Sint-Lucas Ghent:
â€¢ Advertisement Design – bachelor degree, 2002
â€¢ Multimedia (graphic design & animation) – master degree, 2004
â€¢ Illustration – master degree, 2006
At the end of his studies, Kristof got the opportunity to start working in an agency as a
motion designer and illustrator. He worked for 3 years on commercials, tv-idents,
program titles, logos, print campaigns, etcâ€¦
Kristof did many projects for a famous Belgian youth tv-channel, where he did the
character design, graphic design and animation for various tv-idents, program titles,
and all sorts of promo stuff (such as gigantic inflatable dolls of his characters).
One of his last projects in that agency was the launch of a new Belgian kids tv-channel,
where he designed the logo and did the design/animation of a series of tv-idents and
program titles. (None of this is shown on this site.)
After this experience, Kristof started working in 2009 as a freelance director, illustrator,
motion designer and animator to work on commercial and personal projects.
His work is often inspired by music, movies, photography, books, weird people, HBO,
fauna & flora, small talk, boring stuff, cats, robots & facial hair.
