Hello, I am Stijn Michiels and I'm known for my art alias Futova. I'm a creative digital designer located in Belgium with a variety of art activities. I specialize in identity design (illustration, motion, branding) and interface design (UX/UI of websites and applications). I make my designs so that they meet your needs and represents your brand in its full glory. I have an eye for modern web trends and like to explore a diverse range of styles.

I started freelancing in 2016, after graduating as a Web Designer. I combined this with music & entertainment business such as music performances and organizing events. A year later I felt like learning more about digital design techniques so I started my bachelor's degree in Digital Design & Development at Devine Howest. I graduated in January 2021 after an internship as a Visual Storyteller & Digital Designer at Once Storytelling, part of LeapForward. Afterwards I started as a Motion Graphic Designer at video production company De Videonauten. I am combining this with my freelance work as a sideline.

Tailored Services

I'm currently available for freelance opportunities or for a long-term partnership. I collaborate in various capacities to create full-service digital projects.

Illustration & Graphic Design

Drawing is my passion. I like to explore a wide range of styles. I make illustrations for digital projects such as motion graphics and applications, or graphic desings for print such as posters and packaging.

Motion Design & Video editing

I love making animations like motion graphic videos, explainer videos and the motion of application interface interactions. As a company or brand you have a story to tell, I try to show this by creating an animated video or an edited video.

Brand identity & Social media

I design all the visual elements associated with your brand, from your logo, icons and typography to colors, product packaging design, website design and even social media assets. I make your brand recognizable and help you stand out to potential customers in your market.

Web Design (UI/UX)

I design websites and mobile apps with a well thought-out User Experience and interactive User Interface. I first analyze your objective, then create wireframes where web pages and their functionalities are outlined and then convert them into a beautiful graphic design in your corporate identity.
