Who am I?

My name is, as you might have guessed, Jens Gilis, I am 18 years old and a proud Interactive Multimedia Design (IMD for short) student at Thomas More in Belgium. I wish to become a great Art and Web Designer, as I am passionated by, well, art and web design!

I love drawing, either if it is on paper or on my laptop in Illustrator. That's why I am always trying to improve and learn new techniques, so I can keep creating new and fresh designs. I have been drawing all my life and I will probably never stop either!

Color contrast

I wanna be the very best! I really do. It might not look like it, but deep inside I am jealous of the people that I admire, people that are better than me. That does not have to be a bad thing though, as it is one of the many things that motivates me to work harder.

Pokémon is part of my youth, and it has taught me of one of the most important lessons in life: to never give up.

Although Bulbasaur still has to grow as a Pokémon, and I still have to grow as a designer, one thing is sure: we will be the best!

I make sure every single project is original and perfected for your needs. With Adobe's Illustrator and Photoshop I can ensure top-quality results wich are optimized for use on the web.
