Here’s an interesting article by Stefan Baumgartner on using Jekyll for larger sites. I’ve noticed myself that the build time for this (Jekyll based) website takes a lot longer with a large number of posts.
Generating this website with just the blog takes a few milliseconds, but when I add my concert photo galleries it bumps up to 6 seconds. Still fast enough, but I can imagine this becoming a problem at a larger scale.
His solution (splitting up the different parts of the website) is interesting, simple, and very effective.
I’m currently in the process of adding my archive of concert photos to this website. If you spot a mistake (pics not loading, wrong pictures in the wrong gallery, …), let me know! I’m planning to get them all uploaded by the end of the upcoming week.
A few months ago I was asked to design a new poster at Brussels Airport for the Magritte plane of Brussels Airlines. It was nice to work with this special plane again, as I also worked on its design a few months prior (with Thomas Dieu and Thomas De Louker).

We tend to use a lot of mint at home (mojito’s and Thai beef salads are the best), so we have a lot of those plants in our garden. The warm summer weather is treating them very nicely at the moment.
For years I’ve been trying to start a blog. Previously, my blogs where always about one subject (concert photography, web design, …), but this always felt restrictive to me. I’m the kind of person that’s always busy with 500 things at a time (to a fault), so I think it’s better for myself to just start writing down what comes up in my mind. Let’s see if this goes somewhere.
