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. In March 2021 I started as a Motion Graphic Designer at De Videonauten. I am currently combining this part-time with my freelance work.

Tailored Services

I'm currently available for selected freelance opportunities. I work as a freelancer in addition to my parttime job as a Motion Graphic Designer. From time to time I collaborate with start-ups, SMEs and creatives in various capacities to create full-service digital projects. I make websites, illustrations, motion videos, branding and much more.
