On 29 April 2020, the Flemish graphic designer, illustrator and musician died unexpectedly at his family home. Hautekiet, better known as Kiet, was only 50. On the website of his alma mater, Sint Lucas Antwerpen, he’s honored as “one of the most important standard bearers of contemporary graphic design in Belgium and far beyond”. In an obituary for the Eye blog, Jan Middendorp comments: “For many years he designed the ever-changing communication of experimental theatre company De Roovers. […] Hautekiet became internationally known as the designer of Belgium’s largest music festival Rock Werchter”. See more of Kiet’s work on his studio website as well as on typo/graphic posters.
